fuel tank

Over at the Australian forum "The Pub" we're discussing the Panther platform cars. The question is , where is the fuel tank on them?

Thanks MarqMan, they turned out really nice. You can't see it in the pic, but I had some Mercury symbols cut at a local sign company. Then I filled the horses in the center caps, painted them, and put on the Mercury stickers....almost looks stock!!:D

Nice to know yours is still going strong at 200k+....that makes me feel safer in pushing mine a bit before dropping the bucks on a new motor and tranny. Getting my "wish" list together so when I start my rebuild life is going to get interesting!
