Are you looking for anything specific or...?

Attached are pics of the Pantera my buddy Shawn Keily (Big Finn Graphics) did for me and a couple pics of the real car (note the body was painted from pics taken of the restored car, there are some differences from the "in the day" car, particularly the gap in the red pinstripe over the front fender arches where it wasn't re-painted when ever-larger extensions were added, etc). It is the Pantera raced by Warren Tope in the "more inclusive" Trans-Am series in the mid-70's until he was killed in a racing accident. Shawn custom cut the graphics and then painted the body for me, though I'd bet he'd sell a set of the vinyl masks if someone wanted. That said, this is a VERY complicated bit of painting...that little red pinstripe (through some Painter's Magic of some sort...) is continuous and lines up even where the rear body cap attaches, all the more amazing because the body was painted "flat" (not cut out) and I attached the rear cap after the fact. The screens are all painted in, not stickers.

Even MORE difficult (I know this because Shawn mentioned it) but the top/hood color is very dark blue and you'll notice it continues in spears (complete with pinstripe surround) clear down the tops of the sail panels. This is ALL paint, no stripey tape.

There is no doubt I'd leave this paint job to an expert...

Body is mounted on a TC3 with the very rare (anymore) "rally" arms and CVD's installed to give a 200mm chassis so the VTA tires/wheels fill the wheel arches VERY nicely. I think the rear arms are still available here and there, but good luck finding more fronts.



















For a suitably large sum I might consider selling this one... Chassis is pretty much a base roller (not even sure what sort of running shape it's in) and body is minty-fresh...only used for display purposes since it's not actually legal for VTA.

I remember seeing that body before. It's a beauty. My needs are much more basic....need some number meatballs for the doors and hood and I'm going to put the name of a local pizza joint on the rear quarters.

Similar placement as this on the Round Table Pizza car

ok! ok! so i raced sunday @ the big rug in indy...100 x 40..(something like that)...& a couple of buddies of mines...got the stator...(25.5)...to trade out for their ballistic 17.5 stator...they was geared @ 4.0..all 4 of us...(2 back track im the only 1 that brought the 25.5 motor it self)....

their cars was sooooo fast...i mean they was blowing by ppl on the back streight like they was standing still...i was wondering why they was sooo fast...could it been that the stator was new....could it been the 17.5 motor has a diff rotor then the 25.5 motor....or could it been that the stator was hand wind....

when i stay fast i mean their 25.5 look like 21.5 going down the streight away
the only thing they cant drive that well...but if they could..MAN!!!

21.5 and open speedo?? Or the same speedo rules as usvta?? If the later, no USGT for me, only own 1 uvsta-legal speedo

And does open speedo mean boost/timing allowed??
