Decided to become a fully paid up member, as I seem to be spending quite a lot of time on here since buying a 88 gte exclusive coupe before Christmas. I am not new to manta ownership having previously owned a 1.8s berlinetta in the early 90's. Which sadly had to go as it didn't go with the pushchair and baby seat.

I was looking for a rolling restoration project to use as an everyday car. I found one on ebay with tax and mot which had issues, but i could go and get it and drive home. It took me about five weeks to sort out the welding and running problems to get it to a point where I can now use it daily. It now has another 12 months mot with a list of advisories but all easily sorted. Still lots to do, mainly bodywork,replacing missing parts etc and then hopefully paint in the summer.

I am also a member of club triumph and run a 1972 triumph spitfire running a dolomite sprint engine.

Which sadly has been abandoned in the garage, waiting for me to do the list of jobs I have over winter.

So other than the few bits I have got to sort out on the manta it's time to get on with the triumph.Just Incase the sun decides its going to start making regular appearances.

Thanks for reading
