June Utah Pantera Get-Together

Once again, we had our annual Utah Pantera Get-Together.  It was a really, really hot Saturday morning, with temperatures later in the day exceeding 103 degrees F.  Four Panteras and eight owners came, making this a little more of a success than the last meeting in September 2012.   Evan Deneris was our gracious host, and each Pantera was parked around his beautiful front yard's fountain.

Doug Reynold's black '74 was beautiful.  One of the rare so-called "Super Panteras" modified by the late Gary Hall, the car hasn't seen the light of day in 10 to 15 years.  Doug said it was in rough shape, but Rex Marshall and Doug really went over it, polished it, and got it running.  A small coolant leak at the Hall Phoenix radiator led to some coolant loss on the driveway.

I found a transaxle!

Yes, I finally found a transaxle.  It has been hiding in my area for 30+ years.  Imagine that!

Gears look good with no signs of rust.  A friend of mine is willing to sell it to me for a reasonable price, too!
