Nice but not really very up to date styling..beginning to look sort of
dated..can't tell much difference overall from the old C-5s... several
sleeker looking cars coming on the market...no one really turns their head
to look at a Vette any more...whereas some of the Jap & German cars are real
head turners...hell my old week end driver ( 1972 Pantera ) collects a crowd
every time I park it...even my friends 1965 Mustang gets more attention than
his wifes C-5...in fact I think some people consider my 1984 Vette more
attractive than the C-5..to each his own... I guess it is due in part to the
fact the Vettes are now so common place..my neighor just traded his ZO-6 for
a new Silverado truck ..he wanted some thing more practical..the Vette bored
him...felt it has become a *** guys /Bimbo type of car..no macho stuff in
driving one..just the rich bitch image.

My dentist just bought an very nice red Pantera w/cammed up Ford and
stainless headers, aluminum intake/valve covers, holley, etc. very nice
wheels with 335's on the rear. He stopped by the shop last week and we went
for a ride. Very, very nice car!!! Ambient engine noise was kinda high,
more than any other real cammed up hot rod. No squeaks and rattles,
nice. Pleasure to drive. And he only spent like $28,000 on it.
I've always loved the Pantera ever since I saw them new on the show room as
a ****ager. But had never ridden/driven one. It sure has me thinking
about one now!!! :-)
A great value for V8 muscle/sound and stunning attention getting style.

Pantera: was New Corvette
Yep. I still remember my first piece of Pantera..... Well, I discovered
them both at the same time, too, but I still get them mixed up.
