To my humble automotive brain, something does not add up. Or was it some sort of toy that cant be under his name back home... ? Kind of odd that he left it behind and sold it in Egypt in my humble opinion.
At that time Pantera values were pretty low, perhaps the hassle and cost of shipping, importation etc. simply wasn't deemed cost effective, if he could just replace it in the US upon arriving home?
Many cars that fetch multi millions of dollars today, like GT40's were simply abandoned or sold dirt cheap in France after a Le Mans race as the cost of transport back was deemed too high for a used up race car!
