The S7 and S7-R are two of the most badass cars ever made.

A friend of mine owns an older Saleen Mustang and has known him for a number of years.

I'm guessing you didn't have to go over any 'speed-bumps' to get there.
(hate 'em).

Well I mostly deal with mansions so it's old hat for me... Youve seen one mansion youve seen them all

What was funny was I didnt realize that it was THE "Saleen" until I saw their license plates on the car and it said "MFG" on it.

This is California... hardly ANYONE tips the servicers here

Not like NY... I used to come home with anywhere from 50.00 to 100.00 a day just in tips.

I want one of these cars, or a sizable Warp Drive Starship, I can afford either about equally.

I think I would have a mess in the front of my pants if I ever saw the S7 in person.

I think the lumpy cam in the damn thing would force it out of most guys.

I was watching a car show on TV one night and they showed a guy picking up one of those at the factory. He seemed a pretty normal guy and had his wife with him. Maybe in their late 40's, early 50's. It was silver too, IIRC. They talked about how safety features were built into it to enable a driver to survive a 200 mph incident.

I thought you were going to say Jay Leno. I would like to hang out with him for a day.

Must be nice to have $550,000 to spend on a car.
