Photo Project 52. Week 36 – Saleen

   September 11th, 2011

This photo is from Labor Day this week.  The car is a 1989 Saleen Mustang, #503, meticulously restored over the last year by my wife’s uncle.  He put a lot of effort in to restoring this beautiful car to its former glory, down to every last detail.  He took it to a local car show on Labor Day and won first place in his category.  I’ve always had a thing for the Fox Body style Mustang, and this one has easily become one of my favorites.

    Good to see this car again. I am the owner from Ohio. I bought this car in 1993 from a dealer with 4k miles. I took great care of this machine. I sold it in 1996 with 14k miles to a teenager who’s dad said he had to give it up within 6 months. Why I never found out. Great to see its still out there. Todd Smith.

    Hi Todd. Interesting history on the car! Thanks for posting. It was pretty ragged out by the time my uncle in law acquired it, but he did a complete ground up restore on it, including replacing the glass and most the interior. It was pretty much in perfect shape. He ended up selling it a couple years ago to get his money back out of the project. I believe it went some where down south towards Texas. I’ll email you a couple other photos I took of the car that day. I also got to drive it. Felt very similar to my 2002 GT.
