I don't know if I posted on this thread yet.

I built a lot of Chevy street cars... 2 Novas, a Camaro, '55 and '57 Chevies, and a whole fleet of Corvettes... but the one that impressed me most in stock form was my '62 Biscayne, 2X4 409 with a 409 horsepower rating.

Never had times on any of them, but this one would spin slicks to a hundred MPH! ...and ate all of the muscle cars I raced.

Pantera

A good friend was the director of Ford racing. There weren't enough cars in the motor pool so he picked me up and we had dinner at his house, It was late so he gave me the keys to his Pantera. I only got to ride in his cobra. He won the 2009 Optima street challenge with his cobra, and came in third last year with his 2005 Ford GT.

i have a pantera GT5S. the early panteras had major flaws (the engines were strong, but the suspension was weak as were the early bodys)

my pantera was built in 1974 but was titled as a 73 when ford pulled the plug on the pantera at the dealers (think lincoln murcury)

out here in cal any 73 car needs no smog.

and is a blast to drive
