    First Panther. 97 MGM owner from Florida.

    Just got my first Panther. This car was in too good of shape to let slide. The original owner traded it in and now it's in my possession. The interior is immaculate and I love the leather seats. Only the steering wheel has the usual wear of 147k miles. The battery is 7 years old and it needs a right front window regulator. Those are the only things wrong with it.

    On to the crappy pics. This was before I washed it. Not bad for $1700









    I washed and clayed the car before applying some "meh" Spray Synthetic Turtle wax and Meguier's Ceramic wax Spray. The outside I'm not too concerned on making perfect but the inside is almost immaculate. I cleaned the leather seats and steering wheel with Lexol Soap and a horse hair brush before applying Lexol conditioner. They came out great and the interior smells like clean leather.

    Never heard of a Panther? Kind of looks like a Buick?

    Didn't know this, probably never paid attention. I just called them Fords and Mercurys.

    Yeah, I was looking at the pictures on my phone and couldn't really tell.

    What was more important to me was when a brand new members joins the forum and creates their first post, if no one else is replying, I try to get in and welcome them plus comment about their post.

    I keep this forum friendly, helpful, accurate and honest. It's good for the members and good business.
