  1. could still be a good project for someone even at the selling price,providing its a self restoration there is still money left in this one. The gold wheel thing always used to be associated with the totally naff gold medallion craze of the day..apart from the odd exception as mentioned above...😎
  2. And that's pretty good money for a fully prepared historical rally car as well.😎
  3. Lol you can clearly see in the first post thats a reproduction item, so you may as well make one up yourself anyway,which will be better than the original effort. Then spend what you save on the hideous cost of fuel nowadays😆😎
  4. Yeah fully aware of the two cars in question mate and i totally agrree with your comment 👍😎 i was just wandering what happened to old gold in the end😕
  5. Good and sad at the same time..what happened to old gold...does anyone know😢
  6. Sounds like a great show,love brands hatch its a win win for me,...might have to make the effort with this.😎
  7. With it being noted that its only a base model.....something that does work in its favour is the interior/bodywork colour combo,being one of the better choices,and is something that serves this manta well imho. .🙂
  8. With that exclusive hatch recently selling for £17300..could the asking price of this be somewhere near, given that its the more desirable coupe perhaps. The underseal on the frame rails in the engine bay is just wrong and a complete eyesore🤢
  9. Opel Manta GT - 2 owners from new - 12,016 miles |😎
  10. Very sound and informative advise on this subject from C.I.H👍
  11. Thats the most i've ever seen a hatch go for,great news for hatch owners😎
  12. do you think they might do another manta car sos or is that expecting to much😄
  13. Good to hear its still about👍 i'm not sure what he went on to producing in the end tbh,but for sure moved away from the manta/car manufacturing side of things😎 i think the manta kit was always a sideline production wise.
  14. Yes i met him about 15-20 years ago went to his unit in shrewsbury to see if he had any kits left,but unfortunately none left and he had even binned the original moulds which he said he would of given to me,which i would of given to the club tbh,but definitely a nice fellow "last of the oldschool" type. I do remember his red gte d plate from the 90's which had the full kit on it was like the showcase car his daughter used to drive it..then it went to someone else in the club and remember a friend of mine doing a bit of welding on it in the late nineties not sure where it is now though,possible somebody on here knows.
  15. I tend to think thats wearing an RMJ kit not quite as good as the Mantzel kits.
  16. Good to see nice ones like this popping up BTW ..thats pretty much good to go and enjoy..as not everyone is able to restore them to their former glory or pay for someone else to undertake for that matter...😎
