Another new panther! What do you think.

Please to say after 4 year building this, we finally got the plates on. Just in time for the nice weather :/

Nice to see another one built, what wishbones did you use they are not Panther ones?

2.0L 8 valve ford twin cam by the looks of it.





Beware of the Goldfish in the tulip mines. The ONLY defence against them is smoking peanut butter sandwiches.

The engine is a 2.0 8v ford dohc. It was the engine after the punto but before the zetec. It's running twin 45 weber carbs and lightened flywheel. It has a alpha weber p150 ecu complete with tps.

What a great looking machine.

The front springs look very short?

I replaced the front springs for longer ones than that reccomended by GTS, think Flak Monkey did too, ran out of adjustment.

Your lower wishbones need to be parallel to the ground, so do your steering arms.

Little update on the car, had a full cage built last week. Turned out awesome. Will be powder coated black.

Just seen this, subject.

Nice car, but a question. Is that number plate legal?

If it is I will do the same, in fact I think we all will!
