i don't personally recognize it.


generally....

sema cars have NICE LOOKING decals on the windows or the body to advertise the products on the car....and the color the decals flow with the car. that diablo sport decal is sooooo damn fugly.

i vote bs...because i'm not sure that front bumper cover is a roush bumper. it also has a centrigugal supercharger.....roush stangs had roots style superchargers....of course...in all possibilites, it could be a sema car as ANY car could be a sema car.

Maybee from 2004 or something, Sema has vehicles of all years and sizes and levels of customization, some sema rigs can be nearly stock, but i doubt it. It very well could be, the Jack Roush mustangs are amazing, i wouldn't doubt that it was AT sema. Those cars are super rare.

This is my personal favorite..

yes that is a roush fascia...and yes, some roush's did not come with s/c's so it is feasible that they added a non-stock vortech

It's possible. Just because it has Roush stuff on it doesn't mean it was in the Roush booth. And just because it may have been at Sema doesn't mean anything, for all you know it could have been at the Shamwow both being used to demonstrate the Shamwow.

It's a functional car I know. But I bet it's more for show than anything. It's just gorgeous.

it is somewhat odd for a '99 mustang(old body style mustang) to be at the 06 show....

Kinda hard to say. Its definately a signed roush, but doubt it was a sema car. and definately wouldn't be parking out right next to the main road to plowed by an accident. i think if it really was it would be on the showroom. The local ford dealer here has a few F50 or whatever there called and some pretty sweet gt/500's and there all in the showroom.

Craig Biffle? GREG Biffle.
Jack Roash? Jack ROUSH.

Roush with a Vortec headunit? Wouldn't they use an Eaton design or a Roush designed setup?

Honestly.. I don't think its genuine. It COULD be..

As far as that being a Roush Mustang....It's very possible. The 99 - 04 stage 1 and stage 2 Roush's were mainly appearance and handling packages and did not include superchargers. Possibly the reason why this one has a vortech S/C. It being an 03 model, I don't see why in the world it would be at Sema 06 since the Shelby's were on display. I think I would have to call BS for the Sema part. Here's a link for Roush Stangs in case anyone is curious...

Looks like somebody bought a car from the dealer, took it in for mods @ Roush & wants to make everyone believe it's something very special so they can jack up the price.

"...Seen two years ago at SEMA..."

My truck was seen 12 years ago @ the very Ford plant that Henry Ford's grandchildren/great grandchildren own. Does this make my truck more valuable too?

Who the he!! is Craig Biffle?

I call shenanigans.

Sorry, rant over.
