Well, after many years of careful ownership my beautiful blue Pantera 2281 will be making a new owner in Holland very happy. That is the good news. The sad news is that is leaving my garage.

But, back on the good news (well, for me) front, Pantera 6776 is joining my stable as the resident "modified" Extreme Pantera. Mixed emotions but I am really happy that 2281 is going to a very passionate new owner, and that 6776 has filled the void.

Here is 2881 being loaded to deliver to the shipper.

Group 4 looks great, but that blue on the stock body car looks fantastic. Never saw that shade blue put on a Pantera. Enjoy that wiiiiide group 4. You may be like me, I sold my stock body orange car after many years cuz the narrow body just didn't do it for me anymore. Nothin wrong with stock body however.

What happened to the "Je Me Souviens" motto on the license plates? Did they think this is easier to remember? Or is it someplace different?

Hi! Rocky, The ‘Je Me Souviens’ is still on there, but only in the province eeastcof Ontario, which is Quebec Wink
Im going to miss that car. Great power ( 434 RWHP), 377 and taller 5th, leather, suspension, GR5 swaybars,EFI,etc, and of coarse those incredible 180's. The only negative is that you couldn't leave it anywhere. Crowds of people wherever it goes.
It couldn't have gone to a better guy. Mark, I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.
In the passed 20 years of ownership ( 2 cars), I was able to make so many new friends, locally and afar. Some of you I have not met in person but I feel that I know very well.
Life has changed for me and so has my car direction but I'll always have a spot in my heart for these beautiful cars. I cant remember last week but I can remember the first time I saw a Pantera at 15 years young and knew I had to have one.
Don't count me out completely.Im hoping my Canadian Pantera brothers still call me for gathering as they are an incredible bunch. I may even join them in a gathering in the US if that happens again. Just look for the short, fat guy that usually says too much.Come over and say hello. Id like to meet those that Ive spent so much time with, online, but have never met. Also, thanks George for the forum. It allowed me to meet such wonderful people.
All the best, my friends. Enjoy and be safe.
I'll still be lurking here and there.

Buyer of 2281 was actually considering buying my Pantera, but was by a Pantera "friend" of mine told of Mark's car, even though Mark's car was not advertised. A bit annoying, and my "friend" is now off the Xmas card list. With friends like these... Wink

But I know Mark's car is fine as well

So congratulations Mark both on the sale and on the purchase. Your purchase looks like a bloody fast mirror
Mark lusted after Derek’s blue car and ended up with it. He lusted after Will’s even more. And always the shrewd collector ends up with exactly what he wants. The 5S will just have to wait for now.

I can’t wait to see them all sitting pretty in his new Garage Mahal.
