Hi all,
was looking at my Pantera today and saw a metal tag riveted on the back left of the engine bay near the plate for the engine number, and after 8 years of ownership, decided to investigate what it is. From an old closed thread (http://pantera.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/6450045562/m/5420061094?r=5420061094#5420061094) I can see it is from a Pantera worshop run by Jon Long in Los Gatos California. A google search doesn't really turn up anything, so I am wondering if he is still around and if anyoune has some contact details so I can see if I can learn a bit more about my car's history.
Thanks, Tim

Jon was an aircraft mechanic (worked for United Aircraft until he retired) and club-level road racer (Mustangs) that worked on Panteras to feed his racing habit. AFAIK, he still lives in Los Gatos, up in the Santa Cruz mountains. Last time I called him (4 yrs ago) the listed phone still worked.
