NPOCP: Panther Racing Edition

Have you ever wanted to drive an Indycar/AOWR car, only to discover that you're not the underperforming son of a former champion? Then today is your lucky day, because Indycar team Panther Racing has an eBay store! Come on in and kick some tires!

Right inside the front door we find this Dallara IR-05 chassis that finished 2nd in the 2010 and 2011 Indianapolis 500. Despite always being a groomsman but never the groom, two-straight podium finishes makes this a fine example of the previous Indycar formula.

Make sure to get an independent inspection however; the car has at least one entry in its accident history. Opening bid is $40,000, with a buy it now price of $95,000.

Over here we have another Dallara IR-05 chassis, which Dan Weldon drove to a 2nd place finish in the 2009 Indianapolis 500. You won't find an Indianapolis 500-winning car at Panther Racing, but at least this car comes with Dan Weldon's race seat. Opening bid is $35,000 with a buy it now price of $85,000.

Now the above two models are chassis without engines, and you presumably want to drive them somewhere. They are cars, after all, and that's what cars do. Luckily for you, Panther Racing offers a Chevrolet Gen III engine and not one, not two, but three Gen II engines. All engines have been rebuilt by Speedway Engines in Indianapolis, and should provide around 700 horsepower on methanol. You'll be on your own for fitment however; Panther only states compatibility with a 1997-2002 Gforce and Dallara chassis. But you're smart; I'm sure you'll find a way. Bidding for the Gen II engines starts at $5,000 with a buy-it-now of $15,000, and the Gen III starts at $6000 with a buy it now of $18,000.

Now you have your car, you have your engine, but what is a race car without race car tuning? Once again, Panther provides what you need, specifically this Roehrig EMA Shock Dyno. I don't know much about dynoing shocks, but this is just the tool for the job, and it comes with an outdated Dell desktop computer. Bidding starts at $25,000 with a buy it now of $80,000.

But maybe all this seems like too much; you don't want to buy a race shop, you just want to drive off the lot today. Panther recognizes that some customers don't want a turn-key solution. For these customers, there is this 1991 Lola with a Buick turbo V6. The simple yellow livery accentuates the many go-fast NACA ducts, which will wow people when you drive it home today. The current bid is $28,300 with a buy it now price of $60,000.

We know you have a choice in used car dealerships, and we thank you for choosing Panther Racing.
