Hi Joe,
...............well it's time to take Ms Patty down to 'ol Cabo San Lucas and do the Cabo Wabo. We depart Monday morning, 0 dark thirty.

After a week of that we return, and I am promised a few days to rearrange the shop & get it back into production shape.

Then it's up to you & Ron, as to who will produce the first roadster Pantera. Should be interesting.
BTW, whoever is first, I have a rear clip ready, laid up with iso-grade resin, at a very reduced price

The rest of that week is split between helping #1 Son learn how to trailer, unload, load, run, etc the 18' Wellcraft we are partners in.
It gets reupholstered & repainted this winter.

I just turned down another offer to sell the yellow Pantera. This guy bicycles by every weekend ( I live out in the countryside where folks go biking) and he has flat fallen in love with it. I offered to sell him a kit or build one for him. But one short ride has convinced him he wants this one. After selling the first Baby Ace I built, I know I would dearly regret selling the yellow Pantera, and it just ain't going to happen.

Wish I was a-workin' on the choptop Pantera right now.

David Breeze

Based on the current and foreseeable future economic issues, Joe is most surely gonna take that title.

It might be more like a couple dinosaurs in the tar pits!!!

The fact that I can't seem to sell my last Countach body to save my life, (the last ebay listing had over 400 page views and 13 watchers, and it still didn't sell at $2,000) isn't helping.

Hello to Dave and all the other followers of this thread!

yes, I still have not got round to posting the pix of Fantera/Pantero #003 as she appeared at the Dells Run show back in june -

however, I have now solved the nagging problem of How to make a 1972 DeTomaso Pantera Speedometer work in a 1985 Fiero GT -

and actually have it read accurately ! ! ! For all of the gory details, please read my thread in tech discussion & questions titled Speedo-drive ratio Info Needed !!!

or use this link : http://www.fiero.nl/forum/F...111219.html#lastpost

Now I must accomplish the same mission for the Pantera Tachometer ! !! !!!

Thank you!

and, yes, they are the real deal !

15 X 7 in front

15 X 8 in the rear

- had them professionally sand blasted, primed, painted, and clear coated first.

- then the new tires installed and balanced.

- mounted to the car with Aircraft grade billet aluminum wheel adapters

- I have a set of four factory pantera center caps for them, but did not get them on in time for the dells run

- but, as you can see, now I need some modest fender flares to make them look Kosher !!

- see the photo that shows the inside of the front trunk, and you can see how far the stick out of the wheel wells ;0

Well, I did some welding on Ron's Pantera project. Honestly, he & FieroGuru have done some outstanding work. They need to share.

And on my way back from the airport I met yet another Fiero guy. Didn't get the contact info, though.

Other than that, I've been up to my eyeballs in the Bellanca:


Out with the old


In with the new




I could have had a V8 ???

And splendid demonstration of welding he did.

Eventually, there will be a build thread but, it will be when the "project" is nearer to completion. Though, I do agree, Paul, Fieroguru did an outstanding job on his part of the project.

BTW Dave, we need to talk about those strakes.

Well Guys,
Seems there are only so many hours in a day...The Bellanca is almost airworthy, and the kitchen renovation is begining.

None the less, the undercover roadster project is ready to begin body work. I just have to create space in the shop.

For your consideration, I'm trying to convince the owner to follow these guidelines to build a roadster



The overhead pic shows the later body style, and my molds are obviously of the earlier body styles.
But, it's the way the body was modified to create an open top that I like.
Essentially the roof portion has been removed.
What I particularly like is that the rear "strakes" are left in place.
To me they represent a large part of the Pantera design signature.
The also would lend themselves to the posability of building in a rollbar protection system.
It looks like it might be easy to fabricate a removable roof and a removable rear window if the strakes are intact.

Here are a few more close ups of the same car:

You just need a good side profile picture of the Yellow or Gray Panteros and then have it photoshopped both ways. Then you can see how each would work before the fiberglass work begins.

Or... do the first one Dave's way and if you do not like it, give it to me and do the 2nd one your way.

We both know he's crazy, besides that, he got to do the engine install exactly the way he wanted to. I'm think'n his vote don't count on the body.

I've been away for years, so could someone update on the Fantera without me reading hundreda of posts. I was interested in one years ago, but the kit never came? What ever happened? Hasn't it been 10 or 15 years now?

Well, I may not have all the details correct, but here is my understanding of how it went down. The fellow out West who started the whole Fantera kit got tired of it, and Put the whole shebang up for sale, including the prototype car. OPM2000 purchased the package and had it braught back east. He has re-worked all of the original molds to near perfection. Now he is making additional molds, for parts that were not offered with the original kit, to give us even more options! He is also prototyping a 'chop-top' version which has the roof line lowered by several inches. He is also experimenting with various engine swaps, while debating the merits of a roadster version of the car. ( all while working a day job, and performing the duties of husband and father ! ) If you are thinking of getting a kit, you should use the PM feature to contact him to find out current lead times and prices. I am not sure if he is "Officially" in production mode yet, so be prepared to be patient. Hope this helps ! ! !

Pretty much correct and good information but, let me make a few very slight corrections. First, the Fantera name is not being applied to the Pantera/Pantero body but, I guess if you buy one, you can call it what you want. Secondly, Dave and I loaded up in my truck/trailer and hauled our asses out to CA where Dave bought the car and the molds. We then hauled our asses and the goods back to KY. This was done in about 4.25 days. (If you'll note, check out the trip from Versailles, KY to San Diego, CA or there abouts. Yes, we did haul ass.) Some of the molds have be reworked or refined.

Now to the most important part, Dave was never, ever even remotely interested in a Roadster version until I decided that was how my Pantero would be finished. He has found the version (red car) and suggested that mine should be similar to the one pictured. Although the one pictured is beautiful, it still is not the idea or vision I have in my head. Dave believes certain things about the Pantera body are untouchable and I don't. I don't want to go into what my version is, it will come out eventually. Heck, I wasn't even going to tell anyone that mine was to be a Roadster but somehow the word leaked out. Oh well, it is what it is.

Dave has completed a couple of engine installs but, I'll let him discuss them. My Pantero will be a Roadster, we're hoping a roadster with a removeable hard top but, that depends on some other creative changes that are being made. My Pantero (R) will be powered by a 4.9 coupled to a five speed. The engine swap has been completed and is unique to what most 4.9 are. Fieroguru did the swap for me. I like what he did.

According to our plan, my Pantero (R) will go into the shop for the body this Spring. Of course, everything is flexible on that but, our hope is to have at least two Panteros in Indy for the 30th Celebration.

I happen to agree with that. Now, you just need to convince Dave to produce one. I'll be happy to help but, Dave is the key to making body components pop out of those molds.

Joe,
Actually, I have seen and spoken with the chosen one. He is alive and doing well. He just has some other things going on that he is addressing. My post was really meant to spur him on to get done what he needs to do and let's get back to building Panteros

Al,
The opportunity is here. I won't talk money but, Dave has the molds and can build you one. Just check with him. You can get the next one, right after mine pops out of the molds.

I spoke with Dave about this just the other day. They are just waiting for a little warmer day to wrap up the small stuff, have a ferry pilot take the plane over to renew it's annual and then Dave will be getting some hours with a CFI to get back to where he was. After that, I would assume he will be back to building Panteros and most likely fishing. Currently, he's got his hands full with other stuff.
