New Exhibit at America’s Car Museum Will Pay Tribute to Steve Saleen

Tacoma, WA — “Steve Saleen: A Journey From the Heart of a Racer to America’s Supercar” is the title of a new exhibit featuring 17 iconic sports cars made by Saleen Automotive — one of the country’s leading bespoke auto manufacturers — that opens Nov. 16 at LeMay–America’s Car Museum (ACM).

Steve Saleen, a race car driver turned specialized vehicle manufacturer, started modifying Ford Mustangs in 1984 for higher performance. His brand went on to produce America’s first supercar — the Saleen S7 — which proved itself as a world-class performance car, setting records on legendary tracks including Nürburgring, Daytona, Silverstone and others.

“Showcasing Steve’s collection at the museum is a really amazing opportunity for us,” said ACM Curator of Exhibits Scot Keller. “Saleen is one of the most exciting figures in the industry, and we’re delighted that ACM gets the exclusive opportunity to share his story.”

From 9-11 a.m. Nov. 16, you can also meet Steve Saleen over coffee and donuts, then be among the first to view the new exhibit that includes multiple generations of Mustangs, Saleen’s famous S7 and the mid-engine Saleen. Get Saleen and Caffeine ticket info.
