Up for sale is my XP8 Explorer. This is one of the 119 total production out of the three years Saleen produced these. It is black with gray leather. It's a factory supercharged 5.0 liter or 302 with close to 300 hp. Automatic transmission, AWD, factory lowered 1", factory Borla exhaust, and Racecraft shocks. It has a little less than 85k miles on it.

It is missing two of the four original magnesium Saleen wheels as these were prone to crack. I have the two but it rides on a set of powdercoated factory Explorer wheels in black. I had the front bumper painted solid black instead of with the insert as I liked the blackout look, the factory paint was known to peel. I have the template for the number sticker that is supposed to be on it - can get it put on after the auction if buyer desires. All the other cladding is in place and in good condition, even the rare rear spoiler. It has the carbon fiber overlays on the interior pieces and the correct number plate on the center console. It has the correct carbon fiber mirror, too. The factory radio/CD was rebuilt as they are known to have display issues. I also have all four Coco mats - the driver's has a worn spot but the company Cocomats.com will still repair them. Everything works except for the antenna, motor still hums so gear must have broke. Two years ago I replaced basically the whole front suspension to tighten it up so it still drives good to be 10+ years old. The exterior paint has a few bad places where the cladding has rubbed the paint off the vehicle and some scratches but I would still say it's 6.5-7/10. Very minor surface rust underneath but in good shape as I POR15 undercoated everything. Intake has the correct original Saleen cover plate and radiator support/console both have number specific Saleen plates. 

The truck has SC rebuilt paperwork (I have the before picture). It had a bent control arm and torsion bar and wheel hit fender. Definitely did not deserve rebuilt status so someone must have done some convincing. Only used Mobil 1 oil. Has new back brakes and newer front brakes. Tires are about 70% front and 40% rear, all matching. Close to 35% tint on all rear windows. I installed a factory roof rack from a newer explorer as the Saleens did not come factory with them.

Enterprise customer billed $47k for Mustang stolen from rental lot

Sun, 05 Jan 2014 15:19:00 EST

A weekend rental of a Ford Mustang GT Convertible sounds like a nice, relaxing way to burn some gas, but one Nova Scotia woman's two-day rental is turning into a months-long headache. In early October, Kristen Cockerill picked up the Mustang from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and she returned it the following day as stipulated by the rental contract. Unfortunately, she dropped the car off on a Sunday - a day on which the particular Enterprise office is closed - and the car ended up being stolen overnight.
Now, two months later, CBC reports that Cockerill received a bill from Enterprise for the full replacement of the car totaling $47,271 (a base 2014 Mustang GT Convertible currently costs $40,349 in Canada). As it turns out, the fine print in the contract says that the renter is responsible for cars dropped off after hours until it can be inspected the next business day - this is also reflected on the key drop seen in the news report video, which states "vehicles returned after hours are the responsibility of the renter until inspected on the next business day."
It's not clear how much, if any, of that amount Cockerhill will be responsible for once her insurance company gets involved, but if the insurance company refuses to pay, Enterprise will bill the amount to the credit card she provided during her rental. While this ordeal is far over for Cockerhill, it's a good reminder for the rest of us to always read the fine print.

First 500 European Ford Mustangs reserved in 30 seconds [w/video]

Thu, 29 May 2014 18:59:00 EST

We're pretty sure that any initial concerns Ford had about selling the redesigned Mustang in Europe have been lessened considerably, after the first 500 Euro-spec 2015 Mustangs were been reserved in just 30 seconds. Moreover, 9,300 people attempted to snag one of the coveted orders for the all-new muscle car. Yes, Mustang, you should do quite well across the pond.
The registration event was held during the UEFA (pronounced yu-eh-fa) Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.
"We knew there was huge excitement building for the new Ford Mustang coming to Europe, but the response during the UCL Final was overwhelming," said Roelant de Waard, VP of marketing, sales and service for Ford's European outfit. "It was a truly special way to kick off the Ford Mustang era in Europe."

J Mays retiring from Ford design, succeeded by Moray Callum

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 13:32:00 EST

Ford's highly influential head of design, J Mays, has announced that he'll be retiring from his position after 33 years in the industry, 16 of which were at the Dearborn, MI-based company. Upon departure, he'll be succeeded as group vice president of design by Moray Callum. If that last name sounds familiar, yes, he's the brother of Jaguar's Ian Callum.
It's difficult to explain just how big of a role Mays had on not just Ford's design over the years, but on the entire industry. Before heading to Dearborn, Mays worked for Audi, BMW and then Volkswagen, where he was involved in concept cars that paved the way for design icons like the first-generation Audi TT and the Volkswagen New Beetle. As for his Ford resume, it's extensive.
Mays joined the company in 1997 as design director for Ford, Lincoln, Mercury and Mazda, as well as the Premier Automotive Group (Volvo, Land Rover, Jaguar and Aston Martin). He was heavily involved in the Ford Fusion, Focus, Fiesta, Taurus, F-150 and Mustang, while also contributing to concept cars like the Atlas, Evos, 427, Forty-Nine, Shelby GR-1, Lincoln MKZ and the MKC.
