I have a few of the yard at Cigarette at the main plant, the racks of performance boats at Fort Apache in the '80's And some race boats on the lot at Fort Apache. I'll try to dig them out this weekend.

Pantera was located on 188 St back in the 90's, we may have some pics of our old shop next door to Cigarrette and the marina @ Ft. Apache.
Since you are in Miami, call me 786 331-7100.
Later,
pepe @ pantera boats.

Pepe - You were in the old Tempest building correct? Didn't Don Aronow own that piece of property at one time?

Yes, my computer blocks it as malware as well! i cannot get onto the site at all, as AVG blocks it...?

Has anyone seen the info that is has been compiled about the old Magnums for the book? Is this information available anywhere or with anyone that I could have access to?

I am specifically trying to find out which serial/hull numbers went to Holman and Moody's shops and which ones are and are not accounted for. I hope to find the hull numbers of my boat "The Boss" which is one of these boats and Lee Holman says the information he has makes him think that they are 1969 to as late as 1972's, but even he is not sure about any of this. I am still looking for any old race pics as well and the only races I have been told that it did participate in was the Long Beach to San Francisco races the Santa Catalina races some in Havasu Arizona races all on the West Coast out of the Holman-Moody-Stroppe/Holman Moody Marine shops in Long Beach California. Anything anyone knows about this boat would be of interest to me. Thanks Drex
