Great news, many congratulations on the MOT pass.

Your beautiful car can now also be enjoyed by others as you pass them.

Thanks so much. It was nuts to see the smiles on people's faces when we drove by and when we parked in the car park to eat a burger loads of people commenting and "sayingI had one of those back in the day wish I still had it" I do hope it lasts .

Lovely set of photos! It's a cracking looking car! I've followed the build thread for a while and know the effort that went into it! Great to see it on the road again! 

I hope you ate the burger whilst admiring it from the outside! :lol:

Yes, was interested to see a similar manta, that i knew being tested on a roller at a race circuit, had a chat with the now owner who replaced the cih, with a rwdtop, he removed it himself from his own calibra.120k miles

Away, mods where powercap, and he enlarged the exhaust manifold gasket to suit rwd larger manifold,....... 175bhp.....who knewB)

It's raspy. Yes sportex system excluding manifold.  As I'm still running engine in only reved to 3000 and it's on the button not too loud. However it is loud enough that people loak on in discussed then realise it's a classic and not a boy racer 1.1 ans smile give thumbs up ect .

I'd say that's not a bad set of photos for a girlie! :thumbup  Some nice angles and decent framing. They need a bit of cropping however.

Your Manta has a nice stance!

If that was behind you on a back road you’d definitely pull over to let it by! 😂

I say this laughing but that does happen on on the duel carriageway too.
