  1. This sort of thing would be useful to have remanufactured. It is on the list but probably some time off.
  2. Great pics Herman and an amazing selection of Opels (and a Bitter SC).
  3. And today from the OTK warehouse, we have this Manta B 4 slot complete front end. I warn you now, most of us have bought complete Mantas for less in the past......but I know that some folks have been desperate for one recently. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265548859540?hash=item3dd3f20894:g:Hq8AAOSwtZhiCeST
  4. Their prices are getting a bit silly now. I wonder if he ever sells anything at all?
  5. I've got a spare one Paul but it needs a bit of work.
  6. Just bumping this thread as we need to try and get some numbers confirmed.

  8. I drove past a couple of weeks ago and I must admit, I thought they pulled the house down and completely rebuilt the place when I first saw it. Proper job but I’m guessing it will be an £800k+ price tag when it goes on sale. Its great to see the Gold Hatch on the drive. That is the car that everyone remembers Ian for and was the most favourite in his collection (He had almost 20 vehicles in his possession at one stage). I'm really pleased that both of these cars have been saved.
  9. There are quite a few members in the area, and others also travel to this show so I reckon there will be a few Mantas there this year. I’m local so will be there and would be good to meet you and say hello! Look out for the Gold hatch on Sunday.
  10. We do have a section on the forum for Suppliers and discounts but as with everything, it needs managing to keep it up to date. https://mantaclub.org/forums/forum/81-suppliers-and-links/
  11. Pub meeting in The Midlands area tonight, if you are at a loose end. The Royal Horse, (Hungry Horse pub) in Warwick. We should be meeting from 8pm onwards.
  12. From one Paul B to another, great to have you here. We all look forward to seeing your progress with the car and don’t be worried, we are not snobby about Mantas/Cavaliers…..all as nice as each other in our eyes!
  13. Nice one Paul - we will get back details sent out shortly so that deposits can be paid direct to the club. Great - cheers. We will put a list of folks together and email out the details for paying the deposit shortly.
  14. More good news from the OMOC Panel reproduction project. We have managed to get the B Series Coupe Roof Skin into production. We do not have a final date for delivery but it is likely to be in the Spring of 2023. The next steps will be to take orders for these, for which we will need a 50% deposit up front in order to make this happen. (Note - if the order does not go ahead for whatever reason, this will be refunded in full). When the panels are ready they will be shipped direct from the manufacturer. These will be very high quality items and made from 20 gauge steel. Some of their other items can be seen here - https://www.steelpanels.co.uk/products/ TO REGISTER YOUR ORDER, PLEASE CLICK ON THE "YES" BUTTON ABOVE. We will then send you details of how to pay. Direct Bank Transfer is preferred, and we can provide details upon request. The Details: OPEL MANTA B Series Coupe complete Roof Skin - Non Sunroof version. At present, we are also looking at getting the internal main support manufactured for the rook skin, but at present, this is not included in the price. The Price to club members is £522.00 each for a full panel. We are now taking deposits of £261.00 TO RESERVE ONE OF THESE PANELS - Simply click on the Poll above and submit your name. We will then send you details of how to make your initial deposit payment to the club bank account and put your name down onto the order sheet. This deal includes a 10% discount on the RRP of these panels when sold direct through the suppliers website. Some pictures of some sample roof skins that the manufacturer has already completed (not Manta):
  15. The club has moved this project on now to the point that the B Series Coupe Rear Panel will be entering into production. We do not have a final date for delivery but it is likely to be in the Spring of 2023. The great news is that 2 options are available for this panel. The full panel with all the internal supports and lamp carriers and, to keep costs down, the skin only will also be available at roughly half the price. We have a rough idea of how many people need one of these panels from the previous poll earlier this year. We need a minimum of 10 orders to proceed and we will be looking to take a 50% deposit up front in order to make this happen. When the panels are ready they will be shipped direct from the manufacturer. These will be very high quality items and made from 20 gauge steel. Some of their other items can be seen here - https://www.steelpanels.co.uk/products/ TO REGISTER YOUR ORDER, PLEASE CLICK ON THE "YES" BUTTON ABOVE. We will then send you details of how to pay. Direct Bank Transfer is preferred, and we can provide details upon request. The Details: There are 2 panels available: OPTION 1 - B Series Coupe complete Rear Panel including lamp carrier and internal support structure. The Price to club members is £507.00 each for a full panel. We are now taking deposits of £253.50 OPTION 2 - B Series Coupe Rear Panel - Skin only, (as you would imagine, the outer skin with no lamp carrier or internal supports) The price to club members is £263 for the skin only. We are now taking deposits of £131.50 TO RESERVE ONE OF THESE PANELS - Simply click on the Poll above and submit your name. We will then send you details of how to make your initial deposit payment to the club bank account and put your name down onto the order sheet. Both these deals includes a 10% discount on the RRP of these panels when sold direct through the suppliers website. Some pictures of the original GM panel that the remanufactured panel will be based upon :
  16. Quite surprised by that. I ought to think myself lucky…..it was free from Fort Motors when we cleared them out years ago!
  17. Nice one, well done. I thought it would find a good home fairly quickly. Nice mantas like that don’t hang about nowadays. welcome to Manta ownership!
  18. I while back I posted a picture of the one that I have hanging up in my garage and someone was interested in finding one. This one is a bit damaged as the white backing has worn away but that could be fixed quite easily with some vinyl. Luckily mine is in okay condition. I’ve never seen another one for sale…..until now. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265803260247?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=5E7vREujQOS&sssrc=2047675&ssuid=-OV4srYgSrm&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  19. A few people in the club know that car and the owner is a member too. I think it is great value for the price.
  20. That’s Bitter SC is a nice car for that money…they are seriously rare in the Uk now. I’ve always hankered after a Bitter CD, but they are getting out of reach price wise now. Chevy V8 power and th styling was just beautiful. Rarely see any for sale as they only made 395 of them, and most went to the US. Be nice if it was one of them!
  21. The Mazda RX7 had pop up lights and sits in the ‘attractive coupe’ category. More of a headache in the engine bay than a Manta though! be interesting to see if you find any photos.
  22. That Alfa looks nice in gold. I was out in the Gold hatch last week and followed a gold Nissan Micro and thought then, how rare it is to see gold cars nowadays. Is it a bit of an ‘old person’ colour now? Bloody hope not!
  23. I think there are 3 or 4 left in the club, although this was the only one at Sywell. It’s funny because it was my least favourite colour when I first got into Mantas, I even took a white gold GTE hatch out for a test drive in 1990 and turned it down just because it was gold. Now I kinda love it!
  24. Well I managed to get the gold hatch back together in time for Sywell and now the dust has settled, and we’ve seen all the pictures, I think we can all agree, it was an amazing weekend. It was a shame about the wind on Sunday, but I’d rather have that than a narrowboat in my tent. The Hatch even won a trophy, that’s one’s for Ian.
  25. Wow, top work there! She looks fantastic. I love the colour, it’s one of the nicest GM colours of that era imho. Some of these older paints last amazingly well. I had an Ember Red Chevette as my first car and the paint was the best bit in the end, modern Vauxhall reds have been notoriously bad. I might even have a few rattle cans in the workshop if you need them! 😉
