The Italian “Panther” with the American Ford Engine is now considered a rarity. Birthed to compete with the Lamborghini Miura, the Pantera was a mid-engined exotic with a 330-hp V8 and had some of the best lines of its era. De Tomaso went on to build 7,000 of them, and versions in excellent condition are hard to find. This one is a 1972 model that has 70,000 miles and still looks remarkable. There are plenty of upgrades including a metallic 5-speed automatic shift knob and gate, new steering wheel, Alcantara suede, racing seats, and carbon fiber mirror caps. It’s a rare car that still commands a fair amount of money, and this one as a sub $200K asking price to get you in the seat of an Italian icon that will likely turn more heads than a Countach and provide marginally better rearward visibility.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
