As somebody who buys, restores and deals in Manta's i currently have 2 nearing completion. Fetching top money. Money which 5 years ago would of been laughed at. A lot are selling under the radar and the same story on my two projects which i have 5 interested parties waiting to come and look.

May be right or wrong , by my personal thoughts why people are selling. and mantas popping up in theses condition is affording to repair them or breaking them is cos nobody's got no money  and living costs are going up and austerity , bad times at the movement .

Depends who you are i suppose. But to be honest everything is quiet at the minute (even houses aren't selling). Maybe the time of year when people get their tax refunds, go on holidays and then in August & September after the show season people will be inspired.

I think the problem is that they cost so much in time and money that a lot of people hold out. But the finished cars soon fly out and don't stick around for long, i mean we currently have a waiting list!

 

How are your projects coming on Phillip?

I've found the more cars I have to do, the less I get done. That's why we are selling a couple of coupes and a couple of hatch and a cavalier centaur right now

See that photobucket thing below?

They want me to pay $399 to be able to show that picture of one of my cars.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :lol:

I've just bought the red coupe with the plant growing through it. If you had read the description it has had the floor pans removed. Comes with few extras in my eyes was a good buy. I've got two gte coupes now. The way I see it some people can't see beyond the rust some good parts with the car that are worth buying.
