El Paso, TX (PRWEB) March 9, 2006

Saleen, the premier automotive lifestyle brand for the Ford Mustang, has chosen to sponsor Texas Hot Rods in creating an all-Saleen aftermarket parts enhanced 2006 Mustang.

The project is scheduled to begin March 10th and to be completed by March 20th. All modifications will be by Saleen personnel at the Saleen plant in California.
