I bought a 1972 Pantera "driver" about two years ago. I have spent a considerable amount of money rebuilding it, and now its in the paint shop. I cursed often about the Italian engineering and was delighted when I completed the rebuild.
A few months ago I decided to look for "an easy car to maintain, but with a lot of class-and speed" Two weeks ago I purchased a very clean 91 ZR1, thinking I could fix almost anything that went wrong 'cuz I once owned a 75 Corvette.
Gentlemen, my bubble has burst. The Pantera had an unusual warning system, when something goes wrong-the car quits running, or the fender falls off. Not so with my gleaming white Z. AT least 15 thing can happen at once with this Corvette, some good-some not so good. Not having an owner's manual (yet) I'm having a ball looking at all the sensors blinking in the morning.
I love this car already!! But if I see "Prepare to Parachute" blinking on the read-out in the morning I gonna trade this thing for something collectible , like my neighbor' Yugo.
PS I also have the very desired optional "silent play" CD player.

Welcome to the CAC, Larry. I would like to see pictures of that Pantera when it's done. We like everything here.

Larry, log on to www.zr1.net they are great people with a wealth of knowledge and experience with ZR1's. They will be happy to answer all your questions. I am sure when you go to look for parts you'll see that little phrase I've grown to hate "EXCEPT ZR1." Good luck 91 ZR1 Red/Saddle #2039
