Hello, new here from southern indiana. 3 months ago my dad surprised me when he asked me what I thought about a subaru? Me being the smart alec I am I could not help but to stir the pot a little and just blurted out "Wouldn't a Detomaso Pantera be a LOT more fun?" He just smiled and I thought he knew I was full of crap. Well he picks up the subaru on monday but he surprised me when he said he liked the idea of getting a pantera the more he thought about it and was considering it. We have always been ford fans in fact I am now modifying the 94 mustang GT my mother bought back in late 93. Its become a legacy and a huge project where I have learned a lot more about mechanics and body work then when I started. I can say I am an amature mechanically but I worked 15 yrs as a car audio/security installer so wiring does not scare me just to give a little background.
He and I are in agreement that we want one we can drive and enjoy at shows and occasionally on a track if the mood is right. I have been looking around at prices and watching some auctions to get an idea of what they go for. I have read about the overheating issues and half shaft problems that I would like to have fixed before we buy it. Is there any other areas we need to be aware to check on these as far as rust areas or parts that wear out? Anyone know of a nice driver for sale?
