Are you buying the car as an investment or as a car you want to drive and take to weekend shows? I, personally, like the pre-L cars because of their beautiful, sensuous lines without the flared fenders, spoilers, etc. But, that's me. My Pantera should be coming home to me TODAY!!! after four years of modifications (fuel injection, high hp engine, all leather interior and new seats, etc) that were done to make me want to drive it more often than I was, which was almost never. So, if you're buying it for your own enjoyment, get it done the way you want it and to hell with what others think.
JAG13CAT - I somehow had a feeling a can would be opened, so I'm ready! Commentators on the BaT site has prepared me! Thanks!
TBERG - Actually I'm buying with All Of The Above - investment, driver, take to shows, with investment being high on the list. I'm actually open about a car with or without the mods, but concerned that "I am turning off a segment of future potential Pantera buyers with these mods". The car looks like a 1985 GTS, which is worth way more than a base '73, but LOOKS almost identical at first glance. That seemed to be a plus, but that's why I'm asking.
