Mick Posted February 3, 2007 Share Posted February 3, 2007 Went to see it today, what a mess  Sadly it not going to be rebuilt as he would be better cutting his losses and stripping it for parts. He bought a replacement black Coupe last night, nice car, few bits to tidy up but it shows his love of Mantas, get straight back in another after what happened. He drove back from Peterborough in the dark, slowly and stopped a few time due to nerves and worry it could happen again. He's a bit bruised, seatbelt line across his shoulder, back aching etc as he went in at an angle at about 50mph. He got away lightly, the car didnt, its difficult to get an idea of the shape of the front from the pics but its bent across, down and in a long way, rear end has moved across too, but the passenger compartment is ok, good job in a way he didnt do this before it was welded as it would have collapsed and he could have been injured.
