The exception was Chip Foose. When he tried to come up with a customizing concept for the car, he realized he really couldn’t improve on the design. His changes were subtle and focused on undoing things DeTomaso had to do, in order to lower production costs. He even retrofitted round door handles because he thought they looked far better than the later handles. Other than custom 18”/19” wheels and custom exhaust, only a Pantera owner could spot Foose’s customizations.
