marlinjackThe Machinist #5723 AMARGOSA MACHINE 'Running on Empty- Middle of Nowhere'
I second that!!! "Tuck and Roll" covering the rear window! A FAKE blower! Mako Shark nose. Tail extended by a foot. The real killer are the wire wheels. And that paint job, AUUUUUHGG! This car has everything I never wanted to see on ANY machine, let alone a PANTERA! I must be having a nightmare I can't wake-up from! Yes! Mental Illness is all around us!

I suppose "back in the day" it was considered a cool car,. C'mon, admit it, you had plaform shoes & a liesure suit at one time too! Let this car be a lesson to us all, if you plan on modifying your car, make sure you can undo it if you have to. It's hard to beat the original styling of these beauties! Paul
OUTRAGOUS!!! isn't that what they said.You would think if the guy wanted to jack something up he'd use a vette like everybody else. (CRAFTSMEN NOT) sorry have to go barf now.I've never seen anything that ugly in Oakland.
Hopefully Panteras wont get any worse than this. I agree with stosh that it should be kept around as a lesson to us all. Maybe display it next to some platform shoes or outrageous bell-bottoms� wait, they�re back in style� duoph!
Perhaps you have something there. Get in touch with the Austin Powers producer and see if they want it for the next movie . . . . Maybe they could stage one of those only-in-Hollywood destructo derbies and put it out of its' misery.
From what I read on the DeTomaso E-mail forum, it appears that this car was built by none other than Mr. Darryl Starbird, creator of numerous '60's era custom cars. Remember the Shilloette hot wheels car? You guessed it, check out http://darrylstarbird.com/images/cars/starbird-5.jpg .
Just a quick update on the fate of this custom car; the car was recently aquired by Darryl Starbird's National Rod & Custom Car Hall of Fame & Museum in Grand Lake Oklahoma. I guess that Mr. Starbird is "thrilled" to have one of his creations return "home". Hey - it's a piece of our car culture history, isn't it? I'm not too crazy about it, but, to each his own. Paul
