No dream, but reality.
I've sold the Mustang (no bucks in the bank yet) and am looking for a new toy. A light weight 2 seater is on the radar......something more modern that doesn't require much wrenching. I'm old (70) and my hands & wrists are even older. They've been talking at me regular like.
I have always lusted after a Pantera too. A few years back, I had the chance to sit in one at a car show. So much for the dream, couldn't fit in the car. I am 6' 4" and my head was jammed into the roof. Darned little Italian designers.
Back in the early 70's, a family friend owned a Lincoln Merc dealership and had a couple on the lot that they couldn't give away. I think they ended up taking them to auction and dumping them for nearly nothing. What I wouldn't give for a time machine.
I've always wanted the GT40 and the Pantera. Almost bought a couple of Pantera's, but have the opposite problem of the earlier poster. I'm 5'7", and my face is pressed into the windshield. I've heard the car was designed for someone 5'10", and anything else requires modification to seats, pedals or floorpan, depending on which direction you are from that. I recently sold my '07 Shelby and am regretting it, so I guess a new(er) GT500 would be my dream car now.
I am in need of a welder right quick like....Wifes car needs the floor welded up so we can put the seat back in,cracked this morning and the seat wants to go over backwards. 92 Mustang vert. NE Seattle area.
