Gentle Reminder of the pending August Homecoming Event. An Ad was inserted in this months Pantera communication. Should be a good time with solid and informative Executive dinner speakers. Watch a 5 liter be built and come off the assembly line, tour the Edsel Ford mansion and get your picture infront of Ford HQ just like our founder did. Hope to see the Ford parking lot filled with Pantera's. One week later is the Woodward Dream Cruise and the hotel will discount those who want to stay all week......just saying.
Team, we have 20 cars registered as of today. The earlier the better for plant security reasons we need a list prior to the day. If your interested please sign up. Should be fun, informative and event to remember. Media has been alerted. hope to see you and your Pantera there! The Holiday Inn has a restaurant called Grill 55 and they are providing security to watch over our cars.
2017 Pantera Homecoming - Gentle Reminder - Dash Plaques for the event are on order.

AS an added bonus to the event, the Ford family has just offered a free lunch to all registered and paid partipants while touring the Edsel and Eleanor Ford Mansion on Saturday August 12.

Please do not be disappointed, register soon for security reasons. We do not want to have to turn anyone away from this unique experience.

6 week count down. Some answers to IM questions that may help you decide;
1/. Driving in Canada is the same as US.
2/. Passport or enhanced drivers license required to cross border.
3/. Security is provided by hotel to watch vehicles
4/. Woodward dream cruise is following weekend
Please continue to IM me if you have any questions about this unique event. Thanks DC
