Welcome and congratulations on the Pantera. There is a loosely knit group of maybe a dozen Pantera owners on the north side of Atlanta. Mike Dailey is our unofficial leader of the Pantera community. If you have not been to his web site The Pantera Place http://www.panteraplace.com/
it is arguably the best Pantera resource available. He is also great about helping the” mechanically challenged “. This includes me. I have learned a lot from him and he has taken countless phone calls from me over the years. These calls are usually by cell with me hanging over or under my car! Again a great guy always is willing to help.
Many of us do our own work on the cars .If you enjoy turning wrenches, the cars are fairly easy to work on. There a wealth of information on this forum and do not hesitate to ask questions. Believe me someone has asked it before and been through what you are currently experiencing.
