cover2

Fast becoming one of the must do events of the year in Southern California and surrounding states is the annual Saleen open house and American Muscle car show held at Saleen headquarters. The event in Corona, California is the world’s largest gathering of Saleens.

The event spreads out through the parking lots and closed down streets in front of the Saleen factory, open to all Saleen vehicles and muscle cars. Registration for vehicles is $30.00 and all Saleens are invited to participate, whether it’s a “show car” or not.

The event starts on Friday night September 19th with a casual dinner evening for Saleen Owners & Enthusiast Club Members, Non-Members and Guests. It’s a relaxed meet with locals and out-of-towners, pay-your-own. Meet at Saleen at 5:30 PM to caravan to dinner location.

The show and open house event is on Saturday the 20th with over 30 Saleen and SMS classes. This year they have expanded classes for 2005-09 S-series 3-Valve, Supercharged and Extreme. Additionally there are classes for other Mustangs and Fords, plus Chevrolet, Camaro, Dodge and Challenger, and more.

If you don’t want to have your car judged, there is a Special Display Only category, people are encouraged to bring their daily drivers or projects. There will be special SOEC awards for Saleen entries as well including Longest Distance Driven, Longest Distance Traveled, Best Non-Judged.

One of the highlights of the event is that Saleen will have their headquarters and factory floor open for tours all day long. Steve Saleen will also be on hand for poster signing and autograph sessions. Steve Saleen will autograph Saleen or SMS vehicles after the show.

Saturday evening wraps up with a SOEC Dinner for club members and their guests, and the club is also hosting a Sunday SOEC Breakfast.
