Exercise : Ran the Kidtopia 5K in Grant, AL in 19:57 (first overall). Course was not certified and was said to be 1-1.5 tenths long. Including warmup about four miles total running. A lady was on a bicycle leading us to start the race, but at the first hill I passed her and she never caught up again, so I just had to follow the orange arrow s on the road from that point on!

Good Day for Panteras on Ebay as 3 new ones appeared: Two '72 Pre-L models (2446, and 4170) and on 1974 L model (6757).

Exercise: Ran a 5K at Alabama A&M University this morning at 6AM. Finished in 19:07, 3rd overall, 1st Master. Course was not certified and had two turn arounds with cones which probably made the difference in me not breaking 19 minutes. I really like the early starts (still dark) - I wish all races started this early!

Put a low ball bid on this car on Ebay, not expecting to win: Hate the ugly Lamborghini type mirrors and the roof spoiler, but those can be fixed.

There are currently 7 Panteras on Ebay right now including this very low mileage '74 (some one cut a hole in the dash for a radio ! Doh! :
