People are talking about The Saleen Book and Owners Registry: 20 Years of Saleen Mustangs – the 430-plus page hardcover scheduled for release April 1 by Driveway Books.

The Saleen Book is such a thorough and colorful telling of the Saleen Mustang story that even I learned a lot reading it!” – Steve Saleen

“It’s about time somebody did a book on Steve, and I’m delighted to be a small part of the Saleen history.” – comedian and co-founder of Saleen/Allen Speedlab Tim Allen

The Saleen Book and Owners Registry is a long-anticipated history of the Saleen Mustang in pictures and words. It’s a must for anybody interested in high-performance Mustangs. I’ll be using it for reference for years to come.” – automotive writer/photographer Jerry Heasley

The Saleen Book, of which only 5,000 will be printed, is available in two formats:

“The Standard” hardback edition includes a full-color history chapter for each year of Saleen production; the all-encompassing Owners Registry, which lists specs and available information on more than 7,000 individual Saleen Mustangs; an extensive media bibliography; and sidebars on cars of interest from the past two decades. This 20-year history retails for $60 (plus applicable sales taxes, shipping and handling).

The premium hardback edition is known as “The Saleen 500,” as that’s how many are being produced with individual serial numbers on a bound certificate of authenticity; a high-quality, illustrated jacket; and Steve Saleen’s autograph. Each copy of this desirable collector’s edition is $120 (with no charge for shipping and handling, but applicable sales tax).

Automotive journalist and former Saleen publicist Brad Bowling wrote The Saleen Book from an insider’s angle that gives his story a uniquely intimate perspective. Illustrating the book are more than 500 of the 8,000 slides Bowling shot of original, unmodified cars as he traveled coast-to-coast researching this book, as well as many from Steve Saleen’s company archives.

Because this special publication is expected to move as quickly as a supercharged S-351, Driveway Books is encouraging PRE-ORDERS through this Web site (where VISA and MasterCard are welcome). Shipping for both versions of The Saleen Book will begin the first week in April; please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Credit card orders using VISA and MASTERCARD can be taken over the phone at (804) 784-8851.
