Hey folks,
There was a video posted on Youtube showing how easy it is to punch out a Panther's right rear back-up light to access the emergency trunk release handle. You can break into the trunk in less than 8 seconds!
The video was made by a Police Department because several of their Panthers had their trunks broken into for the gear and guns.
JEEZ!!!....Now everyone knows how to quickly access the trunk of a Panther!

A company has developed a set of block off plates to preclude this from happening and there is a group buy being offered on MM.net.

Here are the two links:
