    I think it's SUH leen Cuze I think that I remember the Steve Saleen's nickname GAS-SALEEN (Gas-Suh-Leen) But I could be mistaken but that's how I say it. :shrug:

    My youngest son, when he was 4, use to call my 2000 S-281 a "Special-leen."

    Kind of like his version, :D but that doesn't help you much.

    You know what i always argue with people on this. They are like it's say-leen, i'm like no it's not it's SUh-leen cause i heard him say it on C&D one time.

    Call them up and the receptionist will say, “Thank you for calling Saleen (Suhleen/Celine), how long would you like to hold?”

    It is not Saleen, as in saline solution.

    i have always said it suh leen but what i have noticed is that people who are not familiar with mustangs tend to say say-leen. dealerships that are saleen retailers and c&d tv are my proof to them.

    If you say it SAAAAY LEEEN then it rhymes with its long vowel

    but with Suh leen then people might get confused

    For example, you are eating some ice cream with your GF and then a SALEEN drove by. You point at the Saleen and then said "look! it's a suh-leen" Your girlfriend then look at you and said, "what? isoceles? Yea that's a form of a triangle with 2 angle sides are equal. But why are you pointing at that car?" Then suddenly I came up from behind and said, "look! it's a Say-leen" Then your GF would turn around and said, "yea it is, wow you must know a lot about car. My BF doesn't know jack and wants to talk about isoceles triangle.." Looks like someone just got :owned:

    Anyhow, you get the point.. I'm just bored.. to each of his own I guess..
