to bad........ but the misinformation that an 1984 saleen was sold for 80K... still makes the car sound outragous to buy for that price....

How come they are not using the square exhaust tips that were on the original car? I liked the way it looked on the car.

They probably went with the traditional round exhaust tips because of production costs and aftermarket production.

For whatever reason, both the round and the trapezoid-shaped (I guess they could be called "square") exhaust tips are currently being used on production Challengers.
