    Hello everyone, my name is Jeremy and I have 1996 Saleen #247. I bought the car from a good friend who rescued it out of a field in Eastern Washington where it had been sitting for 5 years with a blown motor. I have had the car for a year now and slowly have been restoring it. I am currently building a Teksid block motor for it with all forged internals and will finish it off with a Kenne Bell 2.1. Not looking for astronomical power want something that will still be street-able and allow me to enjoy the car. I plan on installing a 4 point roll cage as I plan on tracking this car. I have a T1 wing and 99-04 chrome Saleen wheels on the way for it as well so car will be looking really good here shortly.

    Welcome. I'm jealous to hear you're getting a T1 wing. I want one so bad.

    I personally don't have any, but the cat pissed soaked interior was all thrown out. What a waste of leather interior. I am not sure if the guy I bought it from got any of it sitting in the filed or not I will have to ask.

    Here are a few more but the car is in a serious state of disrepair and is currently undergoing a major facelift.
