About

This was a stunning red Pantera that I took as a part trade against my 396 Corvette because I always wanted one. It was radical with a Supertrap Exhaust system in flat black that looked almost as wild as it sounded. These were unusual systems which you altered the sound of the car by adding or taking off plates, of course this also altered the way the car ran because I am guessing it changed the back pressure. Massive 3 piece BBS rims, old P7s and was blood red. Although fast, I don't think I was ever able to get more than 4 mpg and in the end...that sealed my relationship with it.

Understand, even though I have owned many cars part of the reason was there are so many to own! Financially I could only afford to have a few at a time and wish I could have kept them all! I was able to make a little each time on them allowing me to bump up the ladder so to speak each time. Most of these were owned over a 25 year period with a growing family and an incredibly understanding wife.
