UTP 119K Opel Manta A

Just to conclude my back catalogue of Mantas here is the one and only A I’ve owned. So far anyway. I would definitely have another if the right one presents itself and assuming my kids haven’t spent all my cash.

It was a short romance, we were only together for a year or so. I sold her to a mate (Russel Tanner) who wrote her off a couple of days later. She was an absolute rust bucket so the insurance company weren’t interested and let him keep it. He broke it for spares and I bought loads of bits back. Funny situation - I was happy and sad at the same time. It was nice to benefit from the parts bonanza but I was sorry to see her demise.

We had some good times together and I suppose that’s all that matters. We can’t keep them all - even though many of us will still try.
