    I work as a tech at a Ford dealer and we've had problems with EVERY SINGLE SALEEN we have ordered. Some even got shipped with the CEL on already. I can go on for about half an hour with all the problems we've had to fix on brand new cars but a quick Google search will bring you... "up to speed" on all things $hitty about Saleen vehicles.

    Uh, I normally love your videos but what is up with talking about a supercharged foxbody 302 and showing a NA foxbody 302 at the same time? Same question with the 2.3 turbo engine that is talked about yet we're shown a V8? What's going on here?

    I came here for info on a cool man and the cool cars he made. Not to watch your dumb ass sit there and try to be funny by yelling and saying words with stupid pronunciations like some social outcast from 4th grade. Grow up. Be professional. Cut out the annoying BS and just give us the facts about the cars, because that's why we clicked. No one clicks to see an unfunny presenter who thinks he's bringing in the views. Just, for the love of God, stop.

    The S7 generated more downforce than it's weight. In theory meaning it could drive upside down.

    While most may say the S7 was the most under-appreciated, it's been MY pick as "Dream Car" right next to the Diablo SV Roadster (that is too small for me, so never meet your idols), but that's not the point... That car has been my shizzzzzz since Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit II.
