Just finished walking the dog... We're both panting... Man is it a scorcher outside.
So we (the dog and I), are walking around the local park and I saw this...

My bad... It was a Saleen Mustang, first one I've seen....

It could have been the heat affecting me....

The dog splayed out flat in front of our floor fan with her chicken drumstick legs point towards the four points of the compass. Me.... I was rolling a tall neck across my forehead....

Yep. That is a "normal" S281 Saleen Mustang.

I'm a Mustang guy (stated many times before) but I've never liked these. The way they did the rearend is AWEFUL on good day with bad lighting.

Boy that brings back memories. My dad Bud Wachholz was the first to put a roll cage on a sprint car.
