This is so big I wanted to move it to its own thread and not have it buried.

Thanks for the post Richard

The guy on the right is the seller, Scott Pinsky who used to be in the South Bay POCA chapter until he moved up north 5 or more years ago. Anyway, a week ago he sent me this picture with this comment:

"Hi all:

Well, with some regrets but also a bit of excitement for the new owner (see photo, center), I finally sold number 1970--to a very good home down in SoCal. So welcome the newest member of the Pantera community. It's his first DeTomaso, but hopefully not his last!


Then yesterday I got a forward from Scott:

"Looks like Jay is getting some good use out of the car. I hope the Burbank PD was nice to him.

Hey Scott,

So glad to see that your Pantera wasn't merely shoved into a dark corner of Jay's collection--here he is driving it to work!


The link shows Jay driving his Pantera out of the studio parking lot. Quick Googling (for the last month) didn't find much. Just this short (1sec!) YouTube Video:

BTW, Scott is looking for a well priced Mangusta. I told him "lots of luck". Anyway, don't sell your Pantera now, when word gets out, prices may spike. But, searching for Pantera didn't turn up anything. Hmm, maybe it's too soon for it to be entered. His Super and Sports car collection now stands at 108!!

Per Mike Drew on the POCA forum last Wednesday:

"About two weeks ago, Jay purchased #1970 from PCNC member Scott Pinsky.
Scott had the car in the Monterey auctions and also advertised in
Hemmings. Apparently Jay saw it, and called him up. He's been looking for a good
car for some time now.

There are a few oddities about this particular car (note that it has 1960s
Ferrari teardrop-shaped front side markers, and Mangusta rear side markers;
it also has a small clock for a steering wheel center?), but overall it's a
really nice, sound example in a unique color.

Watch for a full article with photos in the next PCNC newsletter. :>)
