    The fact that 5 liter V8 engines made only about 200 hp is pretty disappointing. I know, tech wasn't as good as it is now but it's all power and no speed. Like a Civic owned by a meathead teen.

I can go on for about half an hour with all the problems we've had to fix on brand new cars but a quick Google search will bring you... "up to speed" on all things $hitty about Saleen vehicles.

    I came here for info on a cool man and the cool cars he made. Not to watch your dumb ass sit there and try to be funny by yelling and saying words with stupid pronunciations like some social outcast from 4th grade. Grow up. Be professional. Cut out the annoying BS and just give us the facts about the cars, because that's why we clicked. No one clicks to see an unfunny presenter who thinks he's bringing in the views. Just, for the love of God, stop.
