Brian started out in the Pantera business working for Lance Nist. That didn’t work out so he set up his own shop. Nist had crates full of Pantera parts but had no idea exactly which parts the crates contained. Brian made Nist an offer for the whole lot, without even knowing what the crates contained. I got the feeling it wasn’t very much of an offer but Nist accepted. When Brian got the crates to his shop he started opening them and cataloging the parts. If I recall, there was more than one new ZF trans with the stuff. There were parts there that hadn’t been available from DeTomaso for a long time. That was probably 20 years ago, or more, so I apologize if my recollection isn’t 100% accurate! I do recall buying a few sets of those little lights that shine on the center console; NOS too. At the time, they hadn’t been available for over a decade. Years later I was sad to hear he’d left the business.
