Saleen N20 Focus

So me and the guys were all out and about, just sitting around bs`ing and whatnot at Sheetz, this huge gas station/restaurant and this I notice this Focus pulling into the pumps, so I glance over and notice a center exit exhaust, so I start to get a bit apprehensive. So I waddle around the pumps a bit to notice this car a bit more and I see a wing, so Iím like damn.. And as I get closer I notice the Saleen on the bumper and Iím like holy hell. So I go over to my buddys and tell them all about the stock nitrous and whatnot, and I wait for the guy to come back out of the store to get back in his car. I walk up and him and shake his hand and tell him this is the first N20 Focus Iíve ever seen and that he was my hero. Haha. So after a bit of conversation he pops the trunk and flashes the bottle around, pops the hood and shows of the solenoids and closes it all up, tells me to take a seat inside, so I open the door and take a break in the leather buckets and he shows off his first mod to the thing, purging nitrous right out of the wiper cowl. Then, he tells me that he paided 14,000 for it, and I almost crapped myself. But he had to get going, and didnít have time to take me for a N20 run, so I shook his hand and he took off.. It was badass, the digi-camera was at home, but I got a pic. On my buddyís cell phone that Iíll try to get on here.

definitely a rare sighting. I have seen a good amount of SVTs out here and one Roush, but have yet to spy the Saleen. Nice of him to give you a quick tour of the car though. Did you pimp the FF community to him?

Yea, it was crazy, I would have never expected to see on in person actually. I told him about the site and whatnot, and he said he'd have to check it out when he got back to North Carolina, so I dunno. But it definately was quite an experience, never would have expected to see one in person in a million years.

^^^haha, are they 04s or 05s....either way i doubt anyone is going to be buying one. If they have been there that long im sure you could go there and get them to give you a huge rebate, probably could work it down to like 15-16k.
