I will try to get some pics the next time I am down that way. It sits under a tree about 60 miles from here in the bull pen at a used car lot along US-11&15 in East Pennsboro.

As for saving it. I don't have the money to go buy another Ranger that I don't drive. If I buy any part of it, I'd grab the grille to go on my B2. She's been painted all black and yellow, almost like she was used for a rally truck at some point.

Anything but the grille, that's the worst part in my opinion....

I only say one Saleen Ranger years ago when they first came out. I was at Sebring Race day with my vingtage SCCA racer, my 73 TR6, and I saw the Ranger in the pit area. It did not make but one full lap, it blew up the engine. All of us in the pits laughed are butts off that day. A brand new race truck and it just went 'Blew'....lol. Man that was an ugly looking truck. I have no idea how many were made but I know they are rare. Grap it up and hide it from view...lol

You would at least think they would do something with that 2.9 that was in there, like a 302 or something spectacular so you could put that 140 mph speedometer to use

The only used car lot I can think of in east pennsboro is Worley Motors, is it there? I don't live in Enola but I've passed that lot a million times.

If I am correct I think that a Saleen Ranger won the SCCA Race Truck Championship in 1991. Anybody else know??

No, it's not at Worley, it's farther south than that. I guess technically it's West Fairview, but it's right next to the one East Pennsboro Twsp sign.

You know as you are heading north, you go past the big grey antique barn, and then there is that gas station/convenience store, up on the other side of the road there is that red brick garage-looking building with the fenced-in area on the side?

It's in that fenced area near the north-west corner under the tree.
