With the new rules regarding ‘Late Classics” Woody Boater asks the real question on everyone’s mind. Is Sex panther here eligible? Yes, its not in everyone’s taste, but it is a 1979.. And it is cool.. If a XK jet boat is eligible than shouldn’t this be? Is there also the possibility that diverse taste will make the boat shows more fun. More dramatic.
I gotta be honest, if I saw this at a show I would stop.. Yes its a pimp boat, but there is a pimp car in the Smithsonian.. Thats right, This Sleekcraft is rather iconic.. It screams, or growls of a time period and brings a smile to my face.. Do I want to own it.. Dear god no.. But do I appreciate it as art.. You bet! Bring on the debate.. That is what makes this new classification fun.. Here it is on ebay if you are compelled by the panther!
