1974 De Tomaso Pantera GTS

The De Tomaso Pantera GTS is an Italo-American exotic car that is favored by many and considered a king by others. It was the result of Alejandro De Tomaso, Italian engineering, and American muscle. The Pantera looks very similar to the Lamborghini due to Giampaolo Dallara, who styled the Pantera, and helped in designing the Lamborghini Miura. Ford held the distribution of the Pantera, but stopped in 1975 because of poor sales. The US GTS model has bonded and riveted wheel arch extensions and badging, but not the higher compression and solid lifter engine of its European GTS counterpart.

Would you like to experience the De Tomasto Pantera GTS and other rare exotics in person? Visit the Marconi Automotive Museum in Tustin, CA and enjoy an eclectic trip filled with style, class, and a touch of adrenaline.

Marconi Sunday In The Vineyard Showcase | Merryvale Vineyards. Bringing the heart and soul of Napa Valley to Orange County, is what makes Sunday in the Vineyard , our annual wine tasting fundraiser, such a fun and unique event. Each and every year, guests taste over 80 varietals of wine, which many are from boutique wineries spanning the globe.

Napa Valley has many terrific wineries, and Merryvale is one of them, which truly brings out the essence of wine and winemaking. Merryvale finds home in St. Helena, the heart of Napa Valley, in a building that happens to have a rich history. Their building dates back to the early days of fine winemaking, and was the home for such wine makers as Robert and Peter Mondavi, the Christian Brothers, and H. William Harlan. Merryvale founded themselves on the principle that “great wines are born on the vineyard,” and they source their grapes from some of the most exceptional wineries in Napa Valley. The Schlatters, Merryale’s proprietors, have a huge passion for wine and winemaking and it shows with each one their bottles. For more information on Merryvale Vineyards, please visit www.merryvale.com .

We are very happy to bring such a tradition to Sunday in the Vineyard at The Marconi Automotive Museum & Foundation for Kids. May 17, 2015 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. For more information on Sunday in the Vineyard and to purchase tickets, please visit www.marconimuseum.org/foundation-events/sunday-in-the-vineyard
