Brian's 2004 Saleen S281 SC #360
aka Yellow360

To begin this story I have to go back to June 2005 it was my 17th wedding anniversary and I was having dinner with my wife. She started telling me she wanted another new car. At which point I told her I was tired of driving around a kids truck (Chevy S10)

It was at that point when she laid it out there for me, she told me she reserved a Saleen Mustang as a gift for me. We went straight from dinner to the Saleen facility in Irvine. That’s when the Screaming Yellow Saleen picked me out. I should also mention that my wife put a little caveat on the deal. I had to quit smoking and if I started up she would sell the car. So far so good.

About the car, we got it brand new directly from Saleen. It’s a S281 SC, that we picked up in mid August of 05. Saleen added a Supercharger to it in December 05, the SC was ported, polished and tweaked at Saleen; by one of the S-7 engineers (a friend)…it puts out just under 10lbs of boost with the stock pulley. The list of upgrades is pretty short but here it is.
