Is it just me or are Pantera prices looking more and more like mangusta prices. Some time ago Mangusta's were a good 2 time as much as a Pantera.

Watch out Mangusta,, here we come Wink

Brad, you have NO idea, I think that prices are definitly coming up. I think I got a deal (under 40K) fr 6808. Wouldn't sell her for twice that! Eeker
Mark 6808
There may be a lot for sale but our buddy Dave is having trouble keeping them in staock. I think we should help him out and offer up our cars to him for sale. That way we can show our appreciation to him. Doug, you go first. Wink
The sign of a good market is when someone approaches you to sell, not vice versa.
Supply and demand and speculation is in the formula right now.
Some are betting that they won't go lower and they could double or triple overnight.
We will see. Personally I'm not predicting anything.
How many memers here, 1700? How many participants? 12? ...tells me something right there.
Well Doug, I will be bare balls honest with you. I have been thinking of selling my car. Not to buy anything, just because I have been sick all winter and have been too tired to work on it. I am getting older, we all are. SO I mentioned it in a thread here and I got an email from someone who saw that. Now me, being the prick that I am, I replied to him and insulted him and he got mad about it. Turns out he had sold his Pantera and was looking for another. So I appolgised and wrote him back telling him more about the car and what I was thinking about as far as price. He either was still insulted or he thought it was far too much for the car.
Now the whole point of this is that guys sell their car thinking they will just turn around and buy another one, maybe even nicer. Problem being is the market moved in the meantime and now they don't have enough to even buy there old car back. I think the market is moving which actually might cause it to move even more. Because people who have been shopping around for a bargin for years are beginning to realize they just may be frozen out of the market.
Everything I own is always for sale. It is only a matter of weather someone else will actually pay me what I want for it. Now you can go off and mumble no way is what I own worth that amount, but ata the end of the day, I still own it and you don't.
Now Doug, addressed this to you, but it was meant more as an open statement about the subject we are disscussing and really, you didn't even say anything about what I am talking about so please, don't take this as really being addressed to you. You my bud. That being said, how much is a Pantera worth?? It is worth whatever a buyer and seller agree on. You want my particular car you are gonna find other cars for a lot less money. But my personall car?? You want that specific one?? Well then you pay this amount and not a penny less. Or you can wait untill I die and rip off my wife and kids. Won't matter to me by then. You don't want to wait?? Then just pays me the money. Big Grin
Oh, the question was Pantera Price?? SO that was my wordy, pompous answer. Smiler
I like what you all are saying. Please keep it up. Won't be long before I'll be saying good bye to my Pantera. Work almost completed.
Just write Dave Adler an email. He is a great guy. I really enjoyed talking to him. He knows tons about Panteras too.
Thanks you guys. If you do decide to sell, I would appreciate getting the assignment. I believe demand is very high at this time. We have sold more cars in the last few weeks than at any time before. Compared to CJ Mustang or Shelbys, we are very reasonable. Pretty soon, I think I will be able to quit saying that most owners will never get their investment back. I expect prices on good to very good cars to be globally in the 40-50K+ range. We have sold several 60K plus cars in the last 30-60 days.
I would rather see everybody simply enjoy their cars but if the time comes to let your car go, I would be very pleased to represent another Pantera owner. I can't foresee ever letting my car go and my daughters have assured me that they will treasure our car. After all, it is part of the family!
Your amigo, Dave

.................................................I can't see it that much yet. It would have to be a grp 4-5 or gt5s like downunders car to bring that much today. We should all wait until the rich Chinese that have been selling us crankshafts want the math.
I think I got a good buy its #9138 1979 GTS 40KM on the Odometer since all guages are in Metric and repainted in spots here and there US bumpers added for customs in 1985 when brought to US. I drove it home it ran like a new car. I said once before there are still many good deals out there.
Ron, my advice, having done something simular to what you just did, years from now when you realize what you have done and start feeling guilty for having stolen this guys car from him, just get in and drive and the guilt melts away. It is the only thing that keeps me sane. Otherwise I feel like a villan.
what I paid was not a steal ... it was a good buy .. if I "stole" it .. I would have said the deal of a life time. Its not a perfect car... its an original low milage car but not perfect. Guilty ?? Never ?? Everyone has different persepctives on things ... to some they are happy to get rid of old gas guzzlers .. other lover spending 8.00 per gallon on CAM 2. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
