Comment: The seller recommends to other owners who are selling their cars to stick to your price. If you have a good car and have invested a lot in it, don't listen to those so called experts who proclaim these cars as only being worth $35K. Quit giving your cars away. This car was way above average and both the buyer and seller were pleased with the transaction. PI Motorsports was not involved in the sale and this was not another "ridiculous" priced PI Motorsports sale. This was private party to private party, although it was advertised on the Pantera International cars for sale page.

Where the hell are these so called experts getting their information?? What are you going to buy comparable to a Pantera?? New Ford GT?? Ferrari 430?? Guilardo?? OK, fine, but you also have to be able to afford tune ups too, and forget about customizing your car. WSo the experts are saying a Pantera is only worth as much as a new Ford 500??? Yeah right, I know which one I will chose.
In 1979 I sold a beautiful 69 Z28 Camaro for $4900., now its worth somewhere around $55k. I then bought and restored a 69 Indy Pace car Camaro. I sold it after my first daughter was born for $6500, in 1983. It now is worth around $45k. This story goes on and on with many of you, cars we have owned, now are worth a fortune. I look at it in this way too, whats out there for 35, 45, 50k+? A new Cad Escalade? Give me a break, it will be worth $2500, in 12 years, yours and my Pantera will be worth how much 10 years from now? I could have bought a new truck, but instead I got a Pantera. So I can only afford a junker to drive to work. I know at home, a Pantera is waiting for the weekend! An investment, a very fun car to drive, going up in value everyday. Everyone who sees the Pantera, people who don't know its value, think the car is worth a lot of money....and there gut feeling is right. It is expensive! When the time comes to sell my Pantera, I will not sell it for what some guy feels its worth, but for what I feel its worth. As I said to the buyers of my Camaros way back then, the value will always go up. Boy was I right! The Pantera is WAY more desireable than my old Camaros. The Panteras looks, performance, limited production, ease of repair all make it a highly desireable car.
