A conversation came up about something that EVERY Saleen has but you cannot get unless you are an owner. So much so that a pic/copy of the title or a pic of the registration has to be provided to Saleen to get one. AND then you have to pay to get it. Each car that leaves the Saleen production line comes with one of these. It's not the engine bay tag. It's not the ground effects, the wheels, suspension or anything like that. Saleen built cars for owners that had those items but didn't get this. Its.....
The console/shifter plaque.
This is something ALL registered Saleen's get. You can see where I'm going. For my car to be a full "clone" and match the other cars this will be needed. I really wasn't sure what I would do to try to get this accomplished. When I started thinking about this I had a conversation with someone about a bunch of miscellaneous parts that someone bought from Saleen in a sale when the company was in transition. In that were some various parts that weren't used in production and left over catalog items that weren't in high demand anymore. The conversation about those parts turned to my car with the one statement "I think I saw your console plaque in a box with other stuff". This was months ago. Fast forward to the Saleen Nationals and I was approached with the statement "I think I have something you need but can't afford." A part of me said "Nah.. no way." So we walk over to some boxes in his truck. He starts looking through them one by one. Then one lands in front of me that has some interesting stuff in it and I think, shoot, let's start digging just to see what's in there. So I lift up one thing and there it was... I was immediately speechless. At a loss for words. I tried to play it off cool and throw it over in front of my buddy and say "Well... there it is."
This is what I found.
I'm still speechless. Thanks Mark!!
