Speaking of investment, James added more in the cabin and hatch areas. The HVAC controls sit lower than usual in the center stack, which was necessary to custom-mount a 7-inch LCD monitor above, while a flip-down Pioneer head unit resides beneath. Less obvious are the suede headliner, visors, and door inserts, but more apparent are the twin 10-pound nitrous bottles nestled in the custom rear-seat delete, where James' proud dedication to the Saleen brand are equally apparent. Oh, and the trunk is now useless-at least for its originally intended purpose-thanks to the custom-mounted, 10-inch Infinity subs book-ending the 1000W Power Acoustik amp on the trunk floor.

As you've by now likely surmised, this stylized Saleen no longer serves daily driver duty. It now sees only occasional sunny-day cruises and plenty of car shows. By the way, James is now 24. I can't help but wonder what automotive creations he will concoct by the time he reaches my grizzled, old age.
