I hate when i see that crap...some punk kid with money showing off his car he just got off the lot while some other guy actually puts time, work, effort into restoring a classic..
I'm going to say it's rare enough to be there since there hasn't been a Camaro since 02 till 2010. Haha. Still if someone is proud of their car why can they not show it off?

Sorry haha i got ever thing disconnected yesterday (including front bumper) and got the 4 cab bolts out. 1 bolt spun but with big channel locks and a good impact it came out. We did this all in 5 hrs including eat dinner. So today while my dads at work Im getting the front bolts by the radiator out. Then im starting to loosen the bed bolts and cutting bed liner to get to them.

Edit-sorry no pictures, summit directions SUCK so we used P/A directions so at first it was a struggle.

Well yes. Obviously it is a mustang body. But I think he was implying that it was a modified (by the buyer) mustang. Which it is not.

I was saying that there is no way that wasn't a mustang just one with modifications done by another company

Well yes. It is a mustang body. But past that? They are very different vehicles entirely. My dads 2007 mustang gt is NOTHING like my friends S281E. Not even close. Interior? They resemble each other somewhat. Exterior? Still yes. But with major changes. Engine? No. My dads was a V8. The S281E is a V8 Supercharged with biturbos, CAI, and direct fuel injection. That's how it comes from Saleen direct. IMO it's not even comparable to a mustang except in appearance.

What does Saleen start with? Oh...a Mustang? So they modify a Mustang and it becomes something else?

Still a Saleen modified Mustang

Ripped off the old tonneau cover rails that were attached to my bed with some gum off. Took a bit more work than I thought, but it worked out well. Not sure if I will buy some bed rail covers soon or not. Any suggestions for those?
