Really cool Pantera. I can just hear the noise, feel the vibration and speed. Dirt, oil, grime, smoke, contact all come to mind looking at that gnarly race car.

The colors do not help the look.
Just imagine if the only 935 you ever saw was in this livery :D

So fine that i have been hunting all the Spark releases down. A time consuming and expensive job

I didn't realise how expensive the Spark De Tomaso's had become. I was amazed to see the same car I posted above sold for Euro 131 (US$ 170) on eBay earlier this month :

An auction for the #31 car from 1972 also sold for Euro 78 (US$ 100) :

Wish I'd bought more of these when they were first released.

The Spark Pantera was very high on my list until I found one.
What a looker Jeff! Now tell us, do you want more or is this enough?

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I would like to take exception to the posting of pictures of the Courage C65 and Pantera in this thread. I have just had to treat myself to one of each :D

I couldn't get the exact same Pantera as the stunning number 32 Camel sponsored car, but I managed to get S0527 the De Tomaso Pantera, No.43, 16th Le Mans 1975 Rubens - Bozetto car.

I'll post an image of it sometime.

I am really unconvinced by this IXO model of the 2016 GTE Pro Winning Le Mans Car. The blue looks wrong and the ride height is set up for speed bumps. I can't do anything about the former by will "adjust" the latter. I was tempted to cancel my IXO order and go with the TSM but i'll live with it for £35.
