It's short, aggressive and makes a mean sound. It doesn't mess around either, with a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ford/">Ford</a> 351-cubic-inch (5.75-liter) V8 sending mountains of torque to the rear wheels. This week, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/jay+leno/">Jay Leno</a> takes us on a detailed tour of his '71 to show why it rocks.<br /><br />There's a regular format to <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/jay+lenos+garage/"><em>Jay Leno's Garage</em></a>. It starts with Jay and maybe a guest taking a look at the car and talking about its history, and then they take it out on the open road. However, this video is practically a Pantera buyer's guide. Jay is adamant from the start that the last thing anyone should own is a stock example. To remedy this, he and his guest, the editor of the <em>Pantera Club</em> magazine, take viewers to school about some of the ways to turn them into even better performance machines.<br /><br />No matter what you do to it, though, the Pantera requires that the driver adapt to it, not the other way around. For example, Jay isn't a big guy by most standards, but he has to cram himself into the cockpit with his shoes off and shirt partially unbuttoned just to go for a drive. Still, once out on the road, it all makes sense with that rumbling V8 and those Italian supercar looks. <a href="/2014/06/23/jay-leno-1971-pantera-video/#continued">Scroll down</a> to watch and learn a lot more about this uncompromising '70s performance car.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/23/jay-leno-1971-pantera-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Jay Leno is far beyond driven in his 1971 Pantera</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/23/jay-leno-1971-pantera-video/">Jay Leno is far beyond driven in his 1971 Pantera</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Mon, 23 Jun 2014 19:58:00 EST.
