Hi, my name is Chris and I'm new to the site. I see you have access or knowledge as to finding the original owners of Saleens. I have recently purchased 99-0232 and was wondering if you could check the background on it for me. Thank you!
99-0232 was shipped 06/26/1999.
The first and only listed owner was Keith XXXXX in Florida.
Supercharger, guage pod, 3.08:1 gears (Standard on the '99 S/C), tire upgrade / 10" wheels, floor mats, Speedster, Chrome Wheels and a black top.
Contact Team Saleen to have your name added to the registry and for a production document on your vehicle. Have your complete Ford VIN and Saleen number handy.
I purchased the car from the above listed guy "Keith" in Tampa, FL. I left his last name out for privacy.
I wasn't doubting you in the least, if that's the way you took it. We just have a local guy who has dumped all kinds of money making his care "like" a Saleen and calling it one. He also thinks it's the fastest thing since nitrous
on a civic. He'll get a run soon. [/rant] Anyways, fakes just annoy the piss out of me. You can even ask the guy what his stock injectors are and he'll say 30 pounders.
I always reply with I thought GT's came with 19's?
