“A Panther in Blue Jeans”

I understand.

Over the years, my co-workers and I have studied each other and paid particular attention to the Panther. It makes work more fun and keeps our analytical skills sharp.

Why do we call him “The Panther?” I’m really not sure. I think it had something to do with Chevrolet.

Does that not make sense to you?

You see back in the 1960’s, Chevrolet was hot on the trail, competing with Ford. Chevrolet had to have a competitor for the Ford Mustang. It was a top secret car/project, that Chevrolet code-named “Panther.”

As many of you know, the Chevrolet Panther actually was unveiled as the “Camaro” in 1966. It’s a cool story; our Panther is interesting; it’s an appropriate name for such an interesting person.

As noted, I do not find the Panther’s lack of communication that big of a deal. We do research and work on a lot of interesting things. He’s probably just thinking.
