    We we're both on parts runs! He was about to leave as I pulled in, but wanted to see my car. Glad he did.

    Looks like the same car due to some marks / chips on the rear quarter? It was a bit rough, but mostly solid. The car was originally yellow, and the previous owner painted it to match the trucks in his company.

    Only 401 Mangustas were ever built.

    There are approximately 250 of them left in the world.

    A friend of mine had one back in the 1970s. You wouldn't believe how many toggle switches there were running across the entire dash.

    I've seen quite a few over the years that showed up at Concorso Italiano in Monterery. Most people know nothing about them and think they are another Pantera.

    My grandfather ordered a Pantera when they first came out, but sold it for more money before he took delivery. (The buyer was relentless apparently). He bought my grandmother a brand new Lincoln instead. I've always had a soft spot for De tomaso since I found that out.
