regaladojasmine Posted September 11, 2011 Share Posted September 11, 2011 (edited) So yesterday I bought my first car! Im 19teen and Ive always wanted one. They are hard to find! and out of no where I got the idea to check craigslist and there was only one for sale at 1,500$ He said it turned on and ran and is automatic. My eyes lit up since the timing was just perfect! I had the money so I called him right away because I know offers like that go quick! and when i say quick i mean QUICK! Haha JACK POT!! So when I got there he told me it wasnt in driving conditions,It turns on and runs but it leaks,and the brakes need fixing. I still bought it anyway but for 1,000$ tow truck included I am so happy I finally have a Manta,my dream car. I SAVED A MANTA! Now I have a lot of work to do to get it up and running.I also want to fix up the interior,Im hopeing this car will do me good. I live in California and there is an "Opel Manta Enthusiast Club" up in Rialto. Their mission statement is to repair all Opels left. They sell parts and do work on Opels....So I hope I can get there help. But right now I think I need someone to come over and take a look at it since It turns on and off,I dont think I could drive it to a shop let alone all the way to Rialto! Anyone reside in Cali?
