    In another thread "So yesturday was not a good day" I noticed Marcus' other rides being a Chevrolet Impalla SS and a Cadillac Escalade. That just got me to thinking what kind of taste in cars other Saleen owners have.

    Marcus - personally, the 1994-96 Impalla SS is one of my favorite sedans. I also previously owned a 2004 Cadillac Escalade...a great SUV, but hard on the wallet at the gas pump (mine was an AWD with heavy 22" wheels).

    So, what else do you own or maybe use as your daily driver? Also, whatever your significant other has for a ride. A local performance forum/board also did this and it was interesting to see what they drove on the weekends, during the week, and what their wife/girlfriend drove...a rather diverse assortment, and some cars I would have never thought to own.

    I have a 2004 Saleen S281-SC and 2005 supercharged Dodge Ram Rumble Bee I drive daily. My girlfriend owns a 2003 Dodge Neon that will soon be traded in on a 2005 Lexus IS350.

    Wow, looks like most here are loyal to Ford with their other vehicles. I feel like the traitor with my Dodge truck.

    :doh:

    My driver is a mildly modded Bright Atlantic Blue 01 Focus ZX3 that I bought new - currently at 70k miles & counting.
    Wife's car is a LOADED 05 Mercury Mariner.
    18 y/o daughter drives a 99 ZX2 Escort.

    The Saleen replaced a 65 Mustang GT350 Clone playtoy that I owned/built over the course of 10 years. Like Marcus, it wasn't officially "For Sale", but enough money came along :hail2: that I decided to "downsize" my Mustang hobby, and tuck some money in the "college fund".:rolleyes:

    Umm lets see, with my car in the shop right now I'm driving my dads 06 F-350 diesel, I don't have anyother cars but my dad does. He has the 06 F-350, A 2003 Jaguar XJR with 450rwhp, an original 427 Cobra, and a original GT-40 Mk1b. And my step mom drives a Acura RL. My dad used to own the 1970 Parnelli Jones Boss 302, and a 1965 R-code Gt-350, but that was way back in the day. When my parents were still married.

    Well,

    Since my other two rides are posted at the top of the thread.... I have a 65 post GTO that is back east in my buddys garage and has 4 feet of snow in front of it. :D Still have my sleeping 89-0028. I have an 06 CRF450R that I need to go pick up that's paid for:(

    From my two rides that Rob posted at the top of the thread you guy's can see I'm really a GM guy. The only fords I have ever owned have been Saleen Mustangs. Must have been that fateful day in high school when I saw my first Saleen. From then on there really has not been another Mustang I was interested in until the 03/04 Cobra. If it makes anyone here feel better I have my eyes set on another S351R that's not for sale but I will change that. Also, I'm trying to talk my wife into letting me buy a new ZO6. I just really want to see if I can break that car under warranty.:D

    I think I am really bucking the trend:
    My daily driver is a 1991 Toyota MR-2 turbo that I have swapped a japanese spec turbo engine into, coilovers, etc.

    The saleen is the garage queen / autocross car.
