Hi to all…
I was so impolite to join this forum without introducing myself first. Bad start I know, and since you never get a second chance to make a first impression… woops.
Anyways, I’m Kid (which is NOT a forum nickname), somewhere in my 40’s, and living in Belgium. So far I’ve been mainly into Alfa Romeo’s (I owned six at some point), but with other then a general interest in Italian cars and bikes, also a serious interest in huge V8’s, and the sportscar era kind of cars (GT40, Lambo Miura, Porshe 917, Can Am’s etc). From the cars of that generation, the Pantera always has been one of my favourites. Whenever I saw one, my hart skipped a beat. Now just a couple of days ago, I bought me #1239, a pushbutton, build on January 2 1971, thought only registered for the first time in December 73. Its history in between build date, first registration, and the year 77 is still unclear, but the car spend its life in Austria from August 77 until the end of 2007. It then crossed the border to Belgium. The car is in good general condition, though needs some care. Little by little I plan to get it back into a condition a car of this kind deserves, and will most likely take it down to bare metal one day. The picture attached is one of the initial add back in 2007. The spoiler, roof antenna will have to disappear one day, and the louvers in the front changed.
