Cool pics, Jo.

Its nice to know that the same people we see in those pics are still the same ones there today. Not many companies can say that and your whole family should be proud of all their accomplishments.

BTW, I tried the 24" B1 prop and it was bumping the rev limiter at 5300+rpms with a full tank of fuel. Slip was still way high at 25+% I'm getting rid of the nose cone lower case and having all my lower internals put into a stock Bravo case this week. Hopefully that will get me started in the right direction or at least eliminate a possibility for the high slip #'s. Thanks for all the help on the phone.

This is a picture of the first 2 24 Panteras racing each other in 1976.

My Father is in Mister Macho and the white boat in the background is a customer of ours in another 24 Pantera.
