I have a Pantera in Atlanta. I cannot find a mechanic/local help. I am interested in getting it looked at to sell. What would you do?

There are several DeTomaso owners in the area. Hopefully one of them will chime in. What is the VIN?
The last four digits of the VIN are 5835. I have the Marti report as well.
If you would like to contact me ( email@example.com or 410-596-3170) I have a close friend in the Atlanta area who is trustworthy and absolutely qualified to look at the car for you .
Thank you, Ron!
We are in the same boat.( Except I'm not Selling )
Southeast Pantera Chapter recommends Pantera Miami ( one of this site's sponsors ) but shipping to Miami every time # 1791 needs a little work..( like valve lash on solid lifters ) just doesn't work.
I've been looking for two years here in ATL and not found a shop I'm comfortable with.
Please let me know of your progress.
I will do the same
I know someone who can do anything to a Pantera. Keith Irwin in Concord NC just outside of Charlotte. He did a lot of work on mine, He's doing a frame off concourse restore of a Pantera. Had done many other ones as well. Knows them well. And, you can't imagine what NASCAR drivers bring him. People all over the country ship him their cars. And truly a good guy.
His business is called Car Crazy in Concord NC.
He's doing a frame off concourse restore of a Pantera.
Hmmmm. Interesting. Unibody frame off.
Yeah. Just a figure of speech. But a total restoration shall we say
