Hi
I am a new member with a black pantera, I saw somepics of a mornington cruise and would love to go on a simular type thing.
I could not see if there are anything like this happening.
Perhaps I am looking in the wrong spots ??
Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

regards
Paul

I suspect you'll be able to make a few new friends around here with that.   :)

Pics?

They work.  And very well!

Tell me what you think.

No that's not safe.  Some of the things I think probably aren't legal in many states.

But your car looks awesome.

Just a pity about the undernourished brakes inside those big wheels.

Has the tyre/wheel combo effected handling/comfort much?

not legal ?
Now you have me curious. Wheel dia is the only issue, everything else is engineered. even the wheel / tyre width.

I can survive with the std brakes, I don't race it anyway.

Comfort ?? umm it's a Pantera !! I don't use it as a daily to drive interstate !

I have more pics from the magazine shoot, but these were easy to find !

Don't worry - just my warped sense of humour.

And which mag?

I think it was street machine august 2008.
I built this car non stop over 4months ! as I had a deadline.
Looks so much different to when I got it.

As in you agreed to the spread in the mag before it was finished?  That'd be a brave move!

But seriously good looking car.  Always been a fan.

nah i got the car December 2007, was my xmas present !!
Had it ready, fully finished for easter 2008, and that was when street machine saw it and wanted it and did the photo shoot.
A few other mags wanted it as well, but because street machine was in first they got the feature.

I had the vision in my head of what I wanted and did it my way ! not to everyone's taste, but they didn't pay for it !!
