Since I know we have a lot of panther fans (and haters) around here, I figured I'd share some photos from a meet that my forum put on this weekend.

We've been doing these meets at fuddruckers for a couple of years now and they always go well. This time we had somewhere around 15-20 cars, I didn't get to do a headcount. We also had a couple people show up at random.

I went down to the road to catch a few people coming in. Next time I have to pick a better spot.

So later in the evening I was talking to some friends and I see this park on the other end of the parking lot. This guy, who owns a local limo company and apparently has a collection of 25 cars, was rolling through the lot when he saw our meet. He said he also had a marauder and if we waited around for 20 minutes he'd shuffle some cars and bring it back.

He was in a 1982 Eldorado that was all original except for a repaint on the hood

So about 40 minutes later, he returns with a black 2004 Marauder, and a 2003+ town car is following him.

It had 68k on the odo and he said he bought it for 10 grand, which is a really good price for the miles and condition. It was a fully loaded car with the moon roof and heated seats, and it was stock except for the poverty beam HID's and a set of fog/driving lights he added in the bumper.

I believe this town car was a 2003, it could have been newer. It had HID's but I think they were factory, it also had a very very very obnoxiously bright LED light bar in the bumper that wasn't on for this pic

Oh, and we saw two of these go by during the meet

All in all, another successful meet. I know we have some panther owners on oppo, so check us out at UPOA.us - United Panther Owners Association, if any of you guys are in the Northeast or Mid Atlantic and want to come to a meet, our next one is going to be at Englishtown's raceway park in November. Although we may have another October meet up. We've had people as far north as Ontario and as far south as Virginia come to our meets.
