No Danny I think that I went and saw that car if its from near Reading that is and it was by far the worst exclusive ive ever seen to the extent that the rear brace across from the ends of the chassis rails had even rusted and I dont mean a bit sh1tty it wasnt there atall.

That was just for starters there wasnt much left of the chassis legs either side and as for a boot floor well enuff said about that im sure.Then you can go onto the rear 1/4 which were starting to well disapear along with the doors and just about ever other part that was made of metal was changing to a nice mushy sh1tty mess.

No Danny this if it is that car is a complete dog and I 100% agree it should be used for what spares are left as it would use just about all the remaining new body panels and parts that are left for the other mantas, die bitch die... if its not that car then sorry Garymanc to diss your car[:D]

i dont think it was the same car as you saw mantabird,was it a automatic[:D]

as the doors are like new[8D]

the floor is full of holes,the rear panels as well,near the door hinges are rotten as a pear[:(]

all the best bits will be put on my 16v[8D]

i am asking my sons college to take it on as a restoration,as the welding is beyond me[:I]

or if not i will try and find someone to fix it[:D]

the question is

is it worth saving[?]

Looks sweet with the wheels Gary - I would have had those but you beat me to it

LEAVE THE MUDFLAPS ON!!!! I went to great lengths to get the exact period right ones for the car (it used to be mine for anyone who doesn't know) and it looks lovely with them on.....
