Here’s a wonderful story about my friend Marty Quadland and the rebirth of his 1972 DeTomaso Pantera: “A Coyote in Wolf’s Clothing,” featured this month in Hot Rod:
Following retirement, Quadland realized a dream of his and moved west to the mountains of Wyoming. In preparation, he downsized considerably, selling his SCCA race cars, several motorcycles, and a late-model exotic, and, for the first time, he considered selling the Pantera. His son intervened, however. “I saw the look on my son’s face when I told him I might sell it,” he recalls. “He thought the Pantera would be his someday. I purchased it a few months before he was born, and he reminded me of how he had grown up around that car. So, it was immediately decided that it would one day be his, and that a restoration would be done.”
