Greg Wackett Launches New Saleen Locating Website

12-23-07: Having founded the Saleen Locating Service back in 1991, Greg Wackett has gained an intimate understanding about the appeal of Saleen vehicles and the individuals who are drawn to them. In that same year he helped to co-found the Saleen Owners & Enthusiasts Club, His inspiration and enthusiasm for this manqué dates even further back, to when Steve Saleen first introduced his unique Mustangs to the public in 1984 – an exciting new brand which brought exclusivity and performance to a handful of enthusiasts.

As more and more of these serialized vehicles were produced, it became apparent there was a need to facilitate the market of previously-owned Saleens. Greg’s passion for these vehicles inspired extended discussions with Liz Saleen, then company matriarch and director of Team Saleen. They explored ideas about how to distribute a list of available cars to those who were potentially interested in them.

It became apparent that it was important to also track the market and provide a mechanism to help establish values of used vehicles – yet Saleen had no staffing resources to provide such services. So with Saleen’s encouragement and blessing came the birth of the Saleen Locating Service. Over the years and through grassroots efforts, hundreds of these lists where either mailed, faxed or e-mailed, and have been regarded as the “must have” resource for every collector in the hobby.

The basic mission is simple: to provide an exclusive venue for Saleen enthusiasts to trade authentic Saleen vehicles, parts and collectibles, and to offer an authoritative and historical resource for vehicle specifications and other literature – a resource for Saleen enthusiasts, by Saleen enthusiasts.

But the Saleen Locating Service goes well beyond that. They were instrumental in getting the limited-production Saleen vehicles listed in the NADA Guides publications to help track and provide authoritative pricing information – an essential aspect of the collector car hobby. There is also an archive of Saleen pricing guides, press information, and other historical literature.

Having personally owned and traded well over a dozen Saleen vehicles, Greg and his wife currently own four, plus two pedal cars, it’s an understatement to say that he is passionate about this hobby. Over the years he has given hundreds of hours of his time to such effects as the Saleen/Allen RRR SPEEDLAB racing team, contributing to “The Saleen Book” by Brad Bowling and worked shows, corporate open houses and other Saleen events across the U.S.

Greg has recently announced the launch of, an online outlet of the Saleen Locating Service. Now, enthusiasts can use this online venue to pursue their own enthusiasm for everything Saleen, and to help share with new owners about what it means when they say “Power in the Hands of the Few.”
