Seatbelt selections

I came to the point of installing the old seatbelts in 6997 and I was surprised to find an innovative new weight saving measure not yet previously mentioned on this forum to date - lightweight shaved head bolts! Pure innovation ! Not quite sure how they will go under impact loading though. Now while some may call me picky ,I therefore decided to ask the forum for the current recommended current best belt selection for the rebuild. I was thinking three point but am open to all suggestions. It...Read More...

The Arizona Pantera Owners Club of America (AZ POCA) has coordinated a Track Day at the Inde Motorsports Ranch. Link to: Inde Motorsports Ranch (Wilcox, AZ) The event is open to all Panteras - we would like as many of our cars as possible. The cost to run your car on the track is extremely reasonable ($150/day per car). Lunch at the track will be provided at additional expense per person. The Inde Track is challenging, but extremely upscale, well run, and very safe. The AZ members have run...Read More...

1974 GTS $179,500. There's a reason we're the largest DeTomaso selling Dealer in the world. We consistently set world record prices time and time again. Rolling right off the back of our 1972 chrome bumper sale at $149,500.00, and black GT5-S @ $279k plus sales tax! Nobody in the world sets records like this, probably never will. 3 high dollar sales in a 30 day period. Over 600 grand in 3 sales. As an aside, on multiple occasions in the past, buyers will fly in from Europe to see a...Read More...

Can anyone recommend an Extinguisher that is compact as I just cannot bring myself to Drill Holes in the Interior to mount one near the driver's seat Thanks as alwaysRead More...

Fuel Injection Featured

I was at home and bored so I figured I would do a write up on electronic fuel injection available today as well as some comparisons to older systems. Having run a performance shop with chassis dyno for several years I have had the pleasure/displeasure of installing and tuning several brands and eras of ECU's. This is 100% based on MY experiences with the units I have worked with. There will always be differences in opinion. Im sure everyone hears the quote "benefits of fuel injection". For...Read More...

Mangusta Steer Wheel for sale????

Now I know this a real long long shot but does anyone have an original steering wheel for sale? My car came without an original wheel so I have nothing at all. I know MR Fiat sells them and that is an option but an original would be preferred (not least because I'm in UK and old parts aren't hit with massive taxes to import). I'm not concerned about the condition (as long as that is reflected in price) - even consider just the metal parts on their own, enough people here who can restore the...Read More...
