  1. Cheers for the welcome guys and for the info on parts. Ive been toying with the idea of trying to make some chassis rails but if they are cheap enough then it makes more sense to buy them. When it turns up on Saturday i will take pics and get them on here and you can see what i am dealing with. DiMarco, was it you trying to get that orange drag manta? Which one did you get in the end ? As i have just missed out on a few with having poor internet. Wonder if it might be one of them and has at least been saved and going to a member.
  2. Hi , My name is Patrick and just got my self a 73 a series. It is my dream car and even though i have a wedding late this year i had to have it. It has a 1.6 in it at the minute but hope to change that. It starts and runs and i hope to have it on the road by the end of summer. It is rusty in parts and will need new chassis rails and arches and a few other bits doing. But this will be my car for life. Can't wait to get started and i will upload some pics when it turns up and also be pestering you lot for any advice you can give me.
  3. Thanks very much for your honest answer... I knew it wouldn't be a simple task, but thought it was worth an ask anyways. It is a sad state of affairs, but I still like to think that there are some lovely people out there and someone might want to help me in my challenge! Fingers crossed, nothing like being optimistic! Thanks again for your reply, Emma.
  4. Good Morning, I was wondering if any of you could please help me... Me and my fiance are getting married next year and he has recently come across the Opel Manta A series and has fallen in love with it, he previously thought he wanted a Ford MK1 or MK2 Escort but then found this car and it is his dream car... So after a very very rough year of a lot of lows, I decided it would be an amazing surprise to see if I could hire an Opel Manta as a wedding car and wondered if any of you knew whether this was possible? I've had a quick look on the web and I have run into the usual issues... we live in Cumbria and everything always seems to be down south and nowhere near where we live! Can anyone help? Point me in the right direction? Any information anyone could give would be brilliant, Thanks in advance and hope you all have a good day Emma
