I don't approve of clones but doing a search for saleen on eBay Motors should get you some pics, at least there were some last time I looked.

caps not apprecieated...

your building yourself a car that people dream of owning without having to payout what others are giving for an original. You think the owners of original cars appreciate a "poser" in their exclusive club?

I dont have a problem with people making use of tried and true designs personally but I can see where collectors would.

Did you honestly think that everyone would be ok with you building a clone and trying to pass it off as the real thing? Get real bro (no pun intended):rolleyes:

I think replicas or clones are great as long as your honest about their authenticity.

There is nothing wrong with making your car the way you want it including making it look like a Saleen if it's not.

The problem with buying the real thing is the higher price and collectability. Would collectors rather see someone chop up an original Saleen because they want the look but want to modify it to their taste? Most clearly would not.

Don't pretend that your car is something that it is not and build it the way you like it.

nothing wrong with a clone at all.

unless you try to pass it off as the real thing.

i dont see why some of you people are sh*tting on this guy for trying to make a car that looks like a saleen.

good luck.

AMEN!! If you want to make it look like a Saleen go ahead!! I though about it more than once. That is probably the only kit I would put on my car. the rest of the aftermarket stuff looks like ****. Remember guy's...we are talking about a car here...." Four wheels and a F***'in seat" :lol: "Train Planes and Automobiles." I could'nt resist. Give the guy a break.
