I too just bought my dream car. I saw it in 1970 at my uncles dealership in Detroit, it's a Pantera. I have owned my 1974 L for 6 months. I found it in a garage 50k miles, the Guy bought a vette and didn't want it anymore, it had not moved in 10 years. I did the work myself rebuilt the ignition, charging, & fuel systems for $600 try that with another exotic!
btw: I turned down $7000 more than I paid for the car already. It is a keeper, I will own it after I can't drive anymore(my guess, 90 years old, I'm 42 now). The car rips and drives like a slot car, I keep looking for the pin in the road.It is not as fast as my 700 hp Blown Altered but time will change that. See you at an event just look for the redhead big guy with a smile ear to ear.
