GoFundMe Launched To Restore The Late Vinnie Paul’s Limo

SirusXM’s Jose Mangin was recently gifted a white 1997 Lincoln Town Car stretch limousine that was owned by the late Vinnie Paul Abbott. After receiving the vehicle from the legendary drummer’s estate, Mangin launched a GoFundMe campaign in an effort to restore it. Those that donate $33 will get their names engraved in the trunk.

Mangin commented:

“I recently inherited Vinnie Paul’s 1997 Lincoln Town Car stretch limousine.

WTF?!

I know right.

That’s exactly what went through my head when I got the call telling me that Vinnie’s estate decided that I would be the honorable recipient to take on this legendary vehicle. They knew that I would love it, care for it, respect it as a “Pantera museum on wheels,” and bring it roaring back to life.

So many celebrities, family, friends, strippers, politicians and more have been inside this limo. Marilyn Manson famously did donuts outside Vinnie’s “Clubhouse” one time. Vinnie used to drive it to go shopping, drive-through restaurants, and of course to party ALL THE TIME.

I had the honor of partying in it back in 2008 in Dallas, and Vinnie played me some HELLYEAH demos out of his monstrous sound system. I remember my insides were vibrating so hard from the intense volume and kick from those speakers, goddamn!?

Now all these years later, I find myself in a very extraordinary situation, one that I would never imagine. Being the proud new owner of Vinnie Paul’s limousine?!

Vinnie wanted to restore this limo while he was alive, but it cost way too much. He even contacted a known TV show to help him pimp it out, but they wanted a ton of money to fix it up. It needs a SHIT TON of work.

Getting the limo to California from Vegas has burned a hole through my wallet, along with other expenses that barely got this beast rolling. It’s gonna take a lot to get this on the road again.

I need to pay for engine work, body work, paint, transmission, power window/trunk motors, stereo/visual equipment (super important!), tires, wheels, brakes, lights, interior seats/carpet, vinyl roofing, front windshield, sun roof, detailing, registration, insurance, storage, and more costs that I have no idea that will undoubtedly happen.

I need your help please. Here’s where YOU come in.

Every dollar donated will go to complete the restoration of the limo that I inherited from my idol Vinnie Paul.

If you donate $33 or up you’ll get your name engraved on the inside of the trunk. It could be your name, your band name, your organization, your company, your pet’s name, or anything you want. Whatever it is, it’ll be forever immortalized on this iconic piece of rock history.

Throughout the limo pimping out process we’ll be updating this page and our socials with cool videos and exclusive content.

I can’t do ANY of this without your help.

Massive THANX to my brother Sonny Guillen for this great idea after hearing me stress out about how I was going to pay for this stuff. He convinced me to do this, and I appreciate his assistance in helping me to run and manage this.

We know that this is an extremely difficult time, and we’re not asking you to hurt your bank account, or not pay a bill because of this. But if you can donate to help get this piece of Heavy Metal history back on the road again, AND get your name engraved inside the “Pantera limo,” well then, it’s a win-win for ALL!

Hope you are healthy and safe, and THANK YOU for considering, maybe for donating, but mostly for loving Heavy Metal, and the music Vinnie left behind!

Peace in a celebrated cloud of music…

Jose “Metal Ambassador” Mangin”

Former Pantera Vocalist Terry Glaze Hopes The Band’s Early Albums Will Be Reissued Someday

During an appearance on “Drag The Waters: The Pantera Podcast,” ex-Pantera vocalist Terry Glaze was asked about the possibility of the band reissuing their early albums “Metal Magic,” “Projects In The Jungle,” and “I Am the Night.” He said it’s not up to him whether or not those records will be re-released, but did say that he hopes it will happen someday.

Glaze said the following:

“It would be amazing to share that music with the rest of the world. I think everybody would really be interested in listening — especially listening to Darrell’s [‘Dimebag’ Abbott] guitar playing. With with the loss of Darrell and Vince [Paul Abbott, drums], I guess it would come down to their father [Jerry Abbott] and Rex [Brown, bass]. I don’t have possession of the master tapes, and with Vince gone… It’d be a great thing for the fans — I’d love to be part of that — but as of right now, I haven’t spoken to Jerry Abbott or Rex about it.”

He also added that he thinks it would be cool to release a box set featuring the three albums plus “Power Metal,” which served as the band’s first record with Phil Anselmo:

“Put all four together in a box. The rhythm section and the guitars — bass, drums and the guitars — are consistent through the whole project. And you could see the growth through them. It’d be really cool. I would love to help out in that in any way I could. But we’ll see. Hopefully someday.”
