A lot depends on your intended use;
1. Is this a 'garage queen' you want to trailer to shows and keep pristine?
2. Is it a weekend warrior, that you drive on that odd weekend a month?
3. Is it a daily driver, to and from work?
4. Is it a car you would want to track occasionally?
All four of the above are very different Pantera's and you need to decide which fits your needs e.g. a good driver will require certain mandatory upgrades like cooling etc.
And whichever one it is, it STILL needs to talk to you, but both my Pantera's 'talked' to me from a computer screen as I purchased them both sight unseen! If you buy from a board member with a car known in the community you can get away with this method, although seeing in the flesh is always recommended.
