That's right. As soon as I get the name on the ship, I can follow it online on the shippers website.
It will be sent from Oakland to Denmark via The Netherlands (Holland) to save some money in tax. From Holland all 3 of my cars will be loaded on a truck, and then transported to Denmark and dropped off at my door. Hope there's not to much salt on the roads in february !!! And yes, I have checked the antifreeze on all 3 cars !!!!
Hi: I was just reading some of the recent posts on the discussion board and I saw that you now have #2241. I have #2248! Yours is the closest number to mine that I have seen and I have owned it nearly forty years. But there aren't that many around the Kansas City area. I hope yo enjoy yours as much as I have mine. Herb

Hello Herb,

That's cool. They must have been on the assemblyline at the same time. You should registre it at www.provamo.com
#2247 and #2249 is both there. Your's is missing Wink
40 years with the same car is incredible !!
Any pictures of it ?
The car made the trip from Nuevo to the shipper in Oakland without damage. So now it "only" have to make the next 6000 miles to Denmark

Here it is at the shipper. DUSTY !!



My friend Steve (WilkWorx) that restored the car for me don't take any chances. So he wrote a list how to handle and take care of the car and attached it to the dash.


The '62 Impala is also mine. The Pantera is loaded on top, because another car of mine, a 1965 Buick Electra 225 convertible, will need to be in the container too.

(Yeah, the drivers side bumper will need some adjustment !!!)

So now I can just sit back and wait. Estimated day for arrival to Rotterdam in Holland is 12th of february. Then it will take a week to clear customs and drive it to me in Denmark. Hurry up spring !!!!!
Looks like the Danish Pantera community is getting better looking year by year. Kristians is maybe my favorite Pantera at the time, but this combo (same as Dave's) have been a color I myself have had in the back of my head for a Pantera some day in the future. And I too are awaiting Mikaels secret color tooSmiler Will be a good looking summer in Denmark this year..
It wil for sure be a good summer, with alot of Pantera's on the roads in Denmark. I know of one more beside mine that is new to the country.

Regarding loading/unloading the car: They have some long aluminum ramps that they use for it. They have done it many times, so (hopefully) it will not be a problem. The car is allready arrived in Holland, and will arrive in my driveway next week.
Finally !!! 8 months after purchasing my Pantera from P.I. Motorsports, it arrived to my driveway in Denmark. Two other cars that I have bought followed.


They cars where taken by truck from The Netherlands to Denmark




ON (COLD) Danish ground for the first time. Hurry up spring !!


A dead battery (Typical) - So it needed a little help from a booster

More to come.... But I will be in the garage for the next days. Drooling..... Big Grin

Haha - It's not licensed here in Denmark yet. It passed inspection 2 weeks ago, and the same day I sent the paperwork to the Danish IRS, who will calculate how much registration tax I will have to pay. That takes 3-6 weeks.

So untill that, it still wears it's Hawaiian plates. It drove from 1972-1999 on Hawaii.

Mine does not compare...


Well, I don't use it as a "garage" and mess around with cars in there. I have another garage when I'm working on my cars. This garage we also use for partying, movienights with the guys etc. etc. - A real mancave ! Big Grin

My other garage is looking like this:




Heine,

Just a tip when jacking your Pantera from the rear of the chassis like that, you run the risk of bending the chassis lip/edge/pinchweld there unless someone's installed an aluminum or steel block just inside the lip across to each frame rail to distribute the load more evenly when jacking. The other option is to cut a piece of wood 2x4 to fit across the frame rails just inside of their outer lips/edges to help spread the load when jacking.

Beautiful car, and great garages! I have major garage envy! Congrats!

Thanks - I love my garage, and I spend many hours there, just listing to music, drinking coffee and playing on the Pinball Machine.

Yeah, the Impala is not bad either. Not mine though. I found it in California and bought it for a friend of mine. It will soon be even lower, when the airride system is installed. Low and slow...... Big Grin
Thank You. Yes, I'm VERY happy with it. Only problem is that I still haven't driven it yet. Only 10 miles when I drove it to inspecton. We still have snow, and it's still freezing at night, so they pour salt on the roads every day. I'm going nuts !!! Hopefully the roads will be better when easter is over.

I didn't know that You could open the site in Chrome, and with that get it translated. But I bet that the translation is a little wierd, haha

Happy Easter !
