The other day, I happened to stop by the mall to pick up a book, and upon leaving I saw a Jaguar 'S' Type, black on black. So far so good, I happen to like the styling of this car. But some person who is totally devoid of taste had added a fake convertible top, again in black, and there was a cutout to allow the sunroof to open still. I wish that I had my digital camera with me, I would have been able to share the misery. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/pukeface.gif

On a lighter note, I did see a DeTomaso Pantera both on the way to and from work the other day, white and with the rear spoiler. It was being driven by a woman. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

"being driven by a woman, white and with the rear spoiler."

That would be a funny looking woman! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jester.gif

Dale,
You took the words right out of my mouth. (Actually, my first thought was "enough about the driver, what did the Pantera look like!"

Well, with a caboose that large she would need all the aerodynamic assistance she can gat.

Alright, for the pedants among us I shall change the grammar.

You know, Tony... you may not agree with me but I believe when Basil made you a Moderator on this site you should have brought with the position, the ideals to not make negative comments about other MG forums.
Don't forget, there are a lot of folks from that BBS that frequent here as well.
Just my $.02

It seems there is not a similar concern on certain other forums for allowing negative comments towards this forum - by name - or the manner in which it is operated. That said, lets get this thread back to the topic please. Thank you.

and that was about a honey with HID headlights and a rear spoiler?


D'oh!!! We were talking about cars! Pantera, yeah, pretty car for certain! I can only claim to have seen 1 on the road. Still a sight to behold in hum drum traffic /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Yes, she was in good condition for her age. I couldn't see the driver that well, but then I wasn't really looking.

I got more excited about seeing a Pantera on the road than I did when I saw a Lambourgini Gallardo or a Murcielago... or even one of the Ferrari F430s...

The closest I came to getting as excited about seeing any other car on the road was when I saw one of the new Aston Martin DB9s... yet another beauty. *sigh*

Still keeping my eyes peeled for the new Aston Martin V-8 Vantage...

...had to bite me tongue after first reading the *original* posts... virtually... to keep from commenting: "Awww, 'e's English, y'know." I think it should stand as originally posted!
