A recent post on the Pantera International forum showed the difference in size of the Pantera and modern cars. Here's a couple of my Pantera versus my 2000 Nissan Maxima.
The Pantera doesn't have an engine, transmission, or much else, so it sits about 4" too high already.
It mat not look it, but the Maxima really dwarfs the Pantera
I aligned the front of the car, and here's the back ends
The front end, in case you didn't believe me.
