Whilst driving my Pantera home on its maiden voyage, after purchase, one of the heater hoses located within the interior split. It filled the cabin with steam in about 2 seconds. I couldn't see where I was going. I happened to be on the Hollywood Freeway at rush hour, in traffic, doing about 65 mph. I couldn't see the road or cars ahead of me.
I don't care if it spoils the cars originality. Rubber heater hoses do not belong within the passenger cabin. Replace them with metal tubing and tube fittings.
