Just barely enough room to walk around my tiny car! The Austin is 12' long and 4.5' wide, so you can see how tight it is!


Built it and the Falcon in this space. A 10'x20' canopy, including shooting epoxy primer in January! Had to turn the heat off to spray, then back on to dry it!:

boothboy You can't compare a Delorean with a Pantara. A Delorean was basically transportation where as a Pantera was a more of a fast sports car. A better comparison for a Pantera would be a Jag, Ferrari, Lambo, or possible a de-tuned GT40 with better seating. It never had the distinction of being a rich mans toy nor was it ever as sophisticated as some of the Euro cars. It definitely could be made to go fast!

Kind of hard to compare to a Delorean. The Delorean was a rejected Bricklen design they had shelved. He told John Delorean he could have it; they didn't want it. It was an over weight poorly built pig with a 6cy and no good features other then the stainless steel shell. I think had t not been for the shell they would not have sold any.

They make a good parade car.

Some things were extremely advanced for a car of that era, and some things were rushed. Some things are simply not understood (like how to burp the radiator of a mid engine car). They did not fair well on winter salty roads.

Cars of that era such as the Camero, Mustang, etc are value based often on numbers matching, build sheet, etc. The Pantera is the opposite. It seems to be a platform people launch from. Good modifications only help the value and functionality of the cars. If you look around I would say the majority are modified and better cars then when they came out.

There are some fantastic examples out there and they do real well on a track even against modern cars. They are a car an average guy can work on unlike many of the exotic cars.

Theya re kind of a cross between an exotic sports car and a 32 Ford hot rod.
