DeTomaso - Great Website -

I sent this as an early "Car Geek Break"

To my eyes the DeTomaso Mangusta is one of the most beautiful cars ever built. I've never driven one and have only seen a few in the flesh. (And always at car shows, never on the road)

I guess they were a handful to own and drive, but, damn, just to be able to look out into your garage and see that car sitting there would make any ownership / driving issues worthwhile. If I owned one I wouldn't even park it in the garage. I would park it somewhere in my house where I could just stare at it all day.

The Pantera Owner's Club website is one of the best club sites out there.

After entering the site, click on the "DeTomaso Cars and the Man Behind the Machine" link. It's a great history lesson about the man behind the Mangusta, Pantera and other great cars.

Have fun!
