Re: Roush or Saleen?

Roush, I saw some of the new Salteens (#1, 2, &5 IIRC) at a car show summer of 10', right after he started SMS. The fit and quality was garbage.... Dogeared corners and edges on the decals, real sad. He used to do a real nice car. I had (and still have them) ground effects on my old 92 LX 5.0. I have a buddy who bought a 08' Roush 427 Tracpak (one of like 100 or so IIRC last summer), haven't seen it in person yet, but the pics are bad ***.

Re: Roush or Saleen?

That would be a Hard decision for me also, Probably lean more to the Saleen side, but it would come down to which one has more goodies in the Packadge.

Re: Roush or Saleen?

neither, both are base GT mustangs and for the investment you end up with the same limitations the GT has (unless you get the built versions that are EXTREMLY expensive)

Most of the time for the money you can do better, unless thats just what you want then you are fine, they just have a big upcharge thats all.

I would MUCH rather spend 50k on a GT500 than 60k on a roush with a supercharger (thats a GT with a supercharger pretty much)

they did finally fix the vin issues I believe (but not sure) so that roush/saleen's are not seen as normal GT's via their vin (hurts value BAD)

Re: Roush or Saleen?

for me it's a roush over a saleen. I more commonly see saleen or saleen clones than I do roush's. But then again i'm biast. You can score a good deal like I did for the exact reason that Spector said, the VIN still will come up GT.

Re: Roush or Saleen?

Like Tib, I'm also biased...

I looked at a Roush this past summer but it just didn't grab me. I ended up buying 11-025 because of it's a 1 of a kind car and I just like the lines.
