    My friend at work sells various Hot Wheels, Matchbox, etc. and has recently been seeling Transformers RPMs that's he has been finding at Dollar Tree. He normally has some success with fire trucks, police cars, etc. so he picks up every Barricade he can find. Anyhow, he recently sold a 10-pack of Barricades to someone in Texas and they guy apparently owns a Barricade car. Not sure if it's the actual movie car or a replica but I thought I'd share. BTW, he buys the cars to pass out to kids when he goes to car shows. Very cool!

    I believe its a replica. (its not really a hard car to replicate. Step 1. take one black Saleen 281E Step 2. add bull bars, lights and stickers. Job done)

    This kinda reminds me of a story way back when this guy turned his Mustang GT into a replica (it wasn't a 281E so it wasn't as close as this) but he got into lots of trouble with the local law enforcement over impersonating a police officer, he got off the charges at the end of the day I believe the judge saw what he was trying to do and let him off.

    My guess, based on comparisons with photos of the original via Google - replica. I think the bully bar on this one sits a little higher than the ones from the original.

    But hot damn.

    This was the first thing I thought of!!!

    Apparently, the guy loves Barricade. My friend said he looked at his other eBay transactions and he bought other items pertaining to Barricade. When I saw, TFW2005 immediately came to mind.... A. I had to share this! & B. Which member was it?! LOL

    It reminds me of the one I saw last month in Southgate, Mi. I wonder if it could in anyway be the same guy. I too was wondering if it could be a user on any of the fan sites.

    So... I'm new (long-time lurker, finally decided to register). I saw this and had to reply. The guy who owns this is actually a law enforcement officer in Texas, which is why and how he can get away with it. It's also not a movie car, it's a replica that he's been working on for awhile. I found some of his posts on a mustang forum not too long ago, actually after finding the pictures on this thread, and he's done the majority of the work to his Saleen to make it look like that (as well as having Steve Saleen's autograph on the dashboard!). He's used it in community events and stuff like that, and I guess goes to Mustang events quite a bit judging from some of his posts on the other forum. Pretty neat, and one awesome looking replica. :)  Don't know if he's on here or not though.

    this thread has pictures of it before a lot of the work: Bumper facia experience? - Lone Star Stangs | The Texas Mustang Club
    Barricade - Lone Star Stangs | The Texas Mustang Club

    Just watched the movie last night. Every scene with Barricade still makes me giddy with high-pitched, squeely joy. I love that car. And I love this car. :D
