Took me almost 2 years to get behind the wheel of this:

My girlfriend's Mom has a 2005 Saleen Mustang.

I've been taken on rides in it last year but didn't get to drive. But part of her Christmas gift to me was to take it for a drive. It's a beautiful car and so much fun to drive. She let me drive around on some back highways near her house for about an hour. I had a huge smile on my face the entire time. We snapped some pics when we got back.

I hated the green color until I saw this car.

Nice, I would kill to drive one of those.

And a little off topic, but that's about the same color as my grandpa's '68 Mustang.
