i know that everyone who has ever bought a pantera has had to do some work on ity because they didnt like the way it was. this i understand but how many people bought a car that didnt need no mechanical and just drive it away for this amount of money i dont know. every car except maybe a brand new one will need something to make you feel better about driving it,radio,or many other things. this car will run with the rest and not have problems staying up with most. some owners have so much money in their cars they could never sell it for what they have in it. i loved working on my car and can say i did everything to make it a driving car reliable and trustworthy.
