First of all, JOIN A CLUB! This is, believe it or not the most important first move. The Pantera Owners Club is famous for taking care of its members.... like having total strangers drive 2 hours to check out a car that you would have to fly in & stay overnight to evaluate. Or lend you a vital part from their car so you can drive somewhere important to you. The tips, announcements of functions etc are worth it by themselves. Second, both POCA and P.I have a magazine for members that lists many DeTomasos for sale from all over the world. Many of the cars are 'known" by members and vital info is freely given. Third, the memberships include many Pantera parts vendors and service shops, and there are comments about them and their parts/services, too. You're not out there by yourself in this car marque, believe me! So-Cal is the center of most activity in the U.S, too.
