Ok
I'd like to give a license frame away.

What you could win

We're going to try explorer trivia ------


Which was the first Saleen Explorer (XP8) to be delivered WITHOUT the supercharger.

What other options were missing?

The correct answer will include the production number-

Maybe this will call the owner out of the woodwork??:cool:

#98-011 did not come with super charger

The options it did not include were
Recaro seats
Carbon fiber hood

It might have not had the 13" calipers if the dealer was notified of the recall before it was sold but could not find out the exact on that X.

We had a Saleen come though the Carmax that I worked at one summer, I think it was 96 or 81. can't remember for sure. I did sneak it out to use for a customer shuttle once :D . At the time I wasn;t all that impressed with it's performance, but then I was driving a little sport sedan that was really fun to drive. (summer of 2001)

Now I realize what a rare beast it was.

But...why would you ask a trivia question without knowing the answer?:confused:

Hey--it's my game and I'll make the rules--:D
Wait until the next one--it'll be even better.

Actually, Steve Saleen's records are so crappy, nobody knows, even him.
