This pic. was taken at Lake X in March of 1995 testing props and set up before racing a regional race in Orlando the following day.

This is a 28 powered with triple 2.5 Mercs. I raced and won many races in Puerto Rico with my Customer.

Top speed back then was in the low to mid 90s.

This is a pic. of a 1992 24 Pantera called Plum Loco.It was powered with a single 650 HP small block.It won a few races in APBA A class that year and was always a top three running boat in the class.

The headers would run out over the deck.

Top speed was in the high 80s.

This is a picture of a 2000 28 Pantera located here in Miami powered with a single 900 HP blower with a # 3 Speed master drive.

It has custom paint work we designed for our customer exact specifications. It has a 3 man bolster with a back bench and no cabin.

Top speed on GPS has been in the mid to high 90s.

This is one of my all time favorite Pantera Pics.

It is a 1978 24 Pantera that was located in New York State pictured with a Pantera car owned by our customer at the time.

This picture was taken in San Juan, Puert Rico in 1995 out in the ocean showing two Pantera 28s battling each other even though in two diffrent classes.The red 28 is powered with twin 2.5 Mercs. and the white 28 is powered with twin big blocks.

They both won their classes on this day.


Puerto Rico waters are always on the rough side.
