I agree. It's busier than an ant hill. WAY too many doo-dads for my taste.

I like it.. Hell,, I didn't even like the 2005's when I first saw them,, but I do now..

Once Roush picked it up a notch with the 2005's Stage III's,, Saleen couldn't be out done..

Guess the big question will be ground effects or not ?? Then which ground effects or nose piece.. Sure wish I could afford to worry about those decisions..

Look at it this way.. A friend of mine is thinking of buying a new Vette & I am trying to head him towards a SALEEN or ROUSH.. See,, they don't look that bad..

Saleen, Shelby, Eleanor, Joe's Garage Special, Mitsubishi Lancer with full ground effects ... it's all the same tacky stuff to me.
I agree with Alex. A great car should be left alone.

I gotta like it...a little bit. They did away with the tacky grill lites! Saw a 6 cyl 05 today. It looks better than the GT.

If there was a Mach1 option (w/shaker), I'd jump on it like a big-dog.

I like everything but the rear of the Saleen,they should have left the taillights alone.
