Wow... I'm in Anaheim until Monday, attending the NAMM show! I'd love to go but I didn't bring a full suit. Think they'll let me in without a jacket?

Wow! I can not miss this one. Will Steve spare some time to sign cars?
Do I need to make a reservation?

I just talked to Molly...

You don't need a suit/jacket, but do wear something nice (something besides a T-shirt and tennis shoes).

You don't need a reservation.

Steve will be glad to do autographs or sign cars as he has time (as always), but they're not scheduling a specific autograph session. Find Molly and ask her if you need one and she'll try to work it out. Keep in mind that Steve is often at the bigger shows starting in April or so.

Thanks for posting this thread -- the MoPar guys are real excited about this event!

Steve taking another American classic and making it better -- it's like 1984 all over again!

MoparMatt, have we met? You seem familiar.

Cool beans!

The Chrysler folks will be kinda' neat. Different element. Maybe can I file for a transfer.


Anyway... hope the night went well!

Well, it was a great evening -- an SMS 570 Challenger in "Plum Insane" purple. The car is beautiful!

Pics to come.

SOEC members Curtis Parker and Angel Haro got to visit with Steven and also get their Saleens signed -- doesn't get much better than that!

That is nice. I see the number plate on the Dash and several familiar Saleen design cues, although still different from the S281 treatments.

I love how the seats have the chevron-like treatment. That would be a nice addition to the stang interior....

The side intakes on the hood look amazing...

The only change I would make would be larger exhaust openings on the rear, but hey everyones a critic.

9.9 out of 10 well done....

Does anyone know how much this package is?

What a night!

This was the best night of my life. I could not believe it, been there with Jim, he introduced me to all the Saleen family and former staff, media and friends who were there. All great people! There I was, VIP, shaking hands with Steve himself, Liz, Clint, Molly, Tom (Wilson), Spring (from the Store) and all the rest of guys. Steve's family, the nicest, very polite Wow!

Thank you Jim for a wonderful experience.
