    It sold for that?!?? Wow indeed. Maybe aero prices are climbing significantly?

    That roof job kills the car for me. It is indeed a nice car, but no Panther since the Boxes can pull off a roof appliqué like that.

    The price is shocking if it properly sold for $22K. Arguably though, I haven't seen another Aero anything lately except for a '95-'97 Cartier Town Car that someone owns outside my neighborhood. It's in pretty decent shape, but otherwise, that's about it. Most Panthers I see now are of '03+ year range, and more than half are pretty tired looking.

    Wow. I lost interest in aero TC's and TC's in general once they restyled the interior to what the one in question has. Those things were $4 - $5k cars in mint shape not three years ago. I saw them for sale like that all the time. Not sure why anyone would pay that kind of money for that car, when $22 large could net something much cooler.

    This. Looks really tacky.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to say that too. At least the PO didn't get totally crazy with the JC Whitney catalog. From what I've seen, it can be much, much worse.
