People are talking about The Saleen Book and Owners Registry: 20 Years of Saleen Mustangs - the 430-page hardcover scheduled for release in April by Driveway Books.

?The Saleen Book is such a thorough and colorful telling of the Saleen Mustang story that even I learned a lot reading it!? - Steve Saleen

?It?s about time somebody did a book on Steve, and I?m delighted to be a small part of the Saleen history.? - comedian and co-founder of Saleen/Allen Speedlab Tim Allen

?The Saleen Book and Owners Registry is a long-anticipated history of the Saleen Mustang in pictures and words. It?s a must for anybody interested in high-performance Mustangs. I?ll be using it for reference for years to come.? - automotive writer/photographer Jerry Heasley

The Saleen Book, of which only 5,000 will be printed, is available in two formats:

?The Standard? hardback edition includes a full-color history chapter for each year of Saleen production; the all-encompassing Owners Registry, which lists specs and available information on more than 7,000 individual Saleen Mustangs; an extensive media bibliography; and sidebars on cars of interest from the past two decades. This 20-year history retails for $60.

The premium hardback edition is known as ?The Saleen 500,? as that?s how many are being produced with individual serial numbers on a bound certificate of authenticity; a high-quality, illustrated jacket; and Steve Saleen?s autograph. Each copy of this desirable collector?s edition is $120.

Automotive journalist and former Saleen publicist Brad Bowling wrote The Saleen Book from an insider?s angle that gives his story a uniquely intimate perspective. Illustrating the book are more than 500 of the 8,000 slides Bowling shot of original, unmodified cars as he traveled coast-to-coast researching this book, as well as many from Steve Saleen?s company archives.

Because this special publication is expected to move as quickly as a supercharged S-351, Driveway Books is encouraging pre-orders through this Web site (where VISA and MasterCard are welcome). Shipping for both versions of The Saleen Book will begin the first week in April; please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery
