Saw the cat this afternoon, basically to stop by and make sure they were working on it to get it ready for pick up this weekend. The seats were finally installed and look outstanding. Door panels still have to go on as well as center console switches and gauges, buffing and detailing, and I will have her back. Car was on the lift, so I couldn't crawl in and try out how I fit in the seats, but that will happen tomorrow. This will be a very special Fathers' Day, indeed. I can't wait to hear the roar. Pictures and video coming this weekend!

Well I didn't get the Pantera back last weekend, it wasn't done enough on the interior to drive, and I was not happy. However, today, I sat in her to see if I fit in the new seats as they moved the rails back a bit after a test fit, yesterday. But, more exciting, is that I got to hear the new engine and exhaust run for the first time in 4 years, and it was really unbelievable. The car is so loud, now, that it makes an F-type V8 sound like a pussycat. I can tell that if I actually take the car on a long distance drive, I will need ear plugs or headphones, it is that thunderous; a profundo base that is sure to rattle every car alarm within a several block radius.

The Red Cat is coming home this Friday, and going to Supercar Sunday this weekend, followed by a run through the Santa Monica Mountains. It was astonishing to hear the big engine roar to life on the first flip of the key as the new fuel injection did its job and will be quite a change from the previous chore of having to unscrew the air cleaners, dump gas through a funnel into the carb secondaries, then run back and start the car, often taking 3 or 4 stabs at this sequence before it would stay running. What a change! And what a sound! Video, sound bites, and photos coming this weekend. And by the way, the leather diamond stiched interior is gorgeous and a significant upgrade to the original seats, door panels, firewall, and dash.
Stay tuned for a few more days.
