Line Of Manta Waiting To Be Cashed In For Gov. Refund


Recommended Posts

every one says that, and its the one that cost the least, against the 400R and the (9,000 mile exclusive)

and I use the 1.6 as a every day car (47k miles original), it must be the original 70's colour.

the way it is,

the 400R is pure fun, loud, brash, exciting, (A FUN CAR)

the exclusive, basically afraid to drive it (insured to the max)

Yellow car is my fav to drive, their is just something about it.

but they all are different!

They all look the buisiness!

The ATS classics on the yella fella, are they the newer deep dished ones or is it just the camera lense or something??

I DO LIKE the young and old pic :)

Very, Very, Very nice, what anyone sees in modern day cars, I will never know. I'd like to see the above question answered too.

Dinnae park it then..................just drive:)

Think I'm gonna get a set o' wide ATS classics for my GTE,it's got standard 14" alloys on it just now. Not sure how it'll look . Most folk would up the rim size but I just love wee wheels,......................................the VW crowd are into the stretched rubber look but I'm thinking wide wheel-wide tyre.

Anyone have thoughts on the above??

John.
