    My friend has until spring to decide what he wants to buy..

    2003 Saleen S-281 Extreme
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...item=2486743333&category=6057&sspagename=WDVW

    vs.

    2003 Chevy Corvette Z06
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=2487183215&category=6168

    I told him that the Corvette is America's greatest sports car for a reason and it would look cooler if a younger person was in a Corvette, rather than a mustang. He says the Saleen is faster and better looking, not to mention he has a lot of mustang experience (owned a 98 GT for some years)


    cliffs - Buddy of mine can't decide between the Saleen and Z06. Give me your opinions OT!

    they arent muscle cars they are sports cars... they are too refined to be muscle cars.

    unrefined > refined

    Regardless, the Z06 would tromp all over the saleen, straight-line, or on the racetrack

    with the amount of $ he'll be spending on either he should buy a rare muscle car from the 60's and it will appreciate instead of depreciate.

    Saleen's are all over here. Besides, when you get down to it, it's a GT, with a blower, a body kit, and some suspension work. No matter how you look at a Z06, it's a Vette, which you can't go wrong with. :)
