  1. This car has been doing the rounds on and off for a while now,was total vaux featured a few years back. Outstanding example for sure and love those rims,but agree with the above comments best kept bog standard. You would think with that mega low mileage it would still be factory original..buts its not, the total vaux owner went all ocd and completly rebuilt it anyway. So probably better than factory in that respect...anyway being a bit of a vaux/opel nut..at 25k can't help but think i could get my hands on a a nice vxr8 for under 20k🤔😮
  2. Are you looking for the original card type,...or the aftermarket alloy /fiberglass examples.😶 There is a company doing a repro one which is better quality than the original (not hard to do),someone might be able to provide the link for it,but its not cheap. With that said i'm sure there is someone out here in mantaland that will have a spare one they will part with.👍
  3. Looks familiar,...is this an ex Andy Abbot motor by any chance...certainly looks nice that's for sure.😎 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1972-OPEL-ASCONA-A-SERIES-1-6S-MEGA-RARE-SUPERB-ALL-ROUND-JUST-DELIGHTFUL/274366424866?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225114%26meid%3D12282a6d30bb495dbdf4eb724dee6597%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D274366424866%26itm%3D274366424866%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A3e3464aa-96d6-11ea-a6f6-74dbd18022a7|parentrq%3A19807a2c1720abd8ec585582ff9fec8e|iid%3A1
  4. I'm starting to think now that the use of the GTE spoiler adds to the overall look of this manta and also is proportional to the car/kit like Ian mentioned. I like the wheels as they remind me of the early ATS ones fitted to manta's,...I would do the centers black to contrast the orange paintwork,if it were mine that is. Awesome car with the best cih engine and a credit to the club...its a big fat yes from me lol.
  5. That's an expensive piece of cardboard😮having said that,.. looking at the pics the quality looks better than the original item tbh.👍
  6. Really nicely done example😍…..in sunny Portugal😎 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Kadett-GTE-year-1974-1204-base-car-2-0-16v-C20XE/143583505519?hash=item216e3e6c6f:g:i4wAAOSw0N1emrbu
  7. Overjoyed to see this come back into the club again..one of my fave historical club cars too, oh and the Courtenay turbo the starmist one, and the 2slot RHD 400 ...etc etc. Congrats on the purchase ,made my day it has.😄
  8. The last time an ex works (McRae) 400 came on the market it sold for 60k...original unrestored Jimmy McRae RHD one,and that was only a few years ago.😮😍
  9. From the Abbot stable by looks.healthy bidding,could be a good project for the right punter.
  10. sorry for the late reply mate been on our hols for the week.😎 Yes still have same manta,but no real progress made with it due to being unable to commit financially.😭
  11. Great to see you have another manta mate,and looking forward to its rebirth..give me a shout, as may be able to help with parts if required. Sorry not able to help with your last car though,although I'm sure somebody in the club will.
