About “Leviathan”

I bought this car after trading in my 2004 SVT Focus. I had an opportunity to buy a 99 cobra for about 3grand less...but passed on it for the better interior/exterior condition GT. One thing I did like about testing out Cobras was the suspension, so a year after buying this car I swapped in a whole new setup.

About “Saleen”

My car is a 2001 Mustang GT. the car has a full Saleen aerodynamics kit including 18" Saleen rims. I am the second owner, i bought the car in oct of 2004 with 13,000 on it. the exterior was already done except for the hood and grill delete. the engine was completely stock.......that didnt last too long! the Novi Mongoose kit went on at 23,000 miles.
