actually he is correct, someone did a study and figured out the percentage of saleens with engine failure within like 36,000 miles and it was disturbing the number, if i can find it ill get you the actuall numbers as i dont remember what it was. for some reason 18% comes to mind.CyLum said:I have a couple of guys here at work that I showed the new Saleen T-Bird too. We all agreed that it looked pretty good... except for that stupid chopped up spoiler in the back. (They could have at least somehow rounded the inside edge instead of leaving a flat side that looks like they just chopped out a chunk.)
These guys both own Mustangs, are in there 30's and are into cars. One of them owns a Saleen which he wrecked and left with a repair shop in New York. They both saw your comment about the engine and wondered where you (so they can see it) got the information about Saleen engines failing after a short amount of time. They both disagreed with your views and figured you were just jonesing for something you couldn't afford. I'd like to know just in case I win the lottery and decide to buy one of his rigs.
Don't kill the messenger! Just curious.
I don't like mustangs at all, too small for my tastes.CyLum said:They both disagreed with your views and figured you were just jonesing for something you couldn't afford.
I have had more comments and thumbs up on my T-Bird than any car I've ever had. I've had a Vette and a Porsche that were just like any other one. I love my T-Bird. Mustangs mostly are a dime a dozen. There are so many of them. A built T-Bird is unique.CyLum said:
There are 2 reasons that I'd rather build up my Bird than a Mustang; I have a big family and traveling is comfortable... and I can take a 15 minute drive down the main road in my city and see at least 20+ Mustangs in that time, and I mean every day... I don't want the same car EVERYBODY has.
