  1. I'm thinking full Rothmans rep with a red top engine..🤑
  2. thats a club members car stradacab (james) ,i do remember this car but i'm sure it had a blydenstein head not sure could be wrong
  3. That's seriously good money that is for that part in a solid state.😃
  4. This has got to be the Bris jas hatch its fair to say😎 i,m sure he will be along soon or someone will be to advise you on this problem.. 👍
  5. Awesomely executed build,its a big fat yes from me👍..i like your trade mark black bonnet like the hatch..incidentally did you sell the v8 4.0 hatch beast in the end🙃 Also very impressed with that interior..mine is still waiting for this to be done so may have to contact you about that......top stuff mate👍
  6. 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🤔😮
  7. 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.👍
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. That's an expensive piece of cardboard😮having said that,.. looking at the pics the quality looks better than the original item tbh.👍
  11. 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
  12. 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.😄
  13. 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.😮😍
  14. From the Abbot stable by looks.healthy bidding,could be a good project for the right punter.
  15. 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.😭
  16. 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.
  17. For sure,the car should be kept complete,..i like it a lot too and the kit looks well at home on the hatch...are you looking to put an i240 kit on yours gary?..the hatch kit in question being really for a coupe was modded to fit on the fuel cap side..You can still get the rallytech ones just to add.,which were taken from the moulds of the irmscher ones supplied by the late great MANTADOC,unless i'm mistaken.
  18. Early daze but current bidding is no where near the value of the kit.....and that's before your presented with the solid shell.😊
  19. Given the choice I would have a whole panel to replace a rotten arch rather than a repair section, to try and make it look more factory original,as a lot of the time the profile of the arch is compromised with repair sections, albeit at greater expense😲having said that I would do the honourable thing and cut out the offending arch out of the equation and put a wide arch kit on instead.😋
  20. LOL its the holy grail that's what it is,...not bothered about the BHP,the genuine article the end.🤩
  21. Sky's the limit with this one...probably one of the best most desirable manta's in the country.....😋
