the wealth of info on this site is astounding!
looks to be growing rapidly with seversl new members (me to!)just in the few days i have been looking around.
my name is David Roland.
i have owned mantas(and modified on them)since 1972 and learned how to drive in a kadet in 1965(i was 9 at the time)
the manta is probably the most reliable and user friendly car i have ever been involved with.after running several shops and working for others and also doing prep work on and owning formula cars the opel is still on the top of the list!
the last car i opel built is called opey(adopted in 1980 or so)--hes a blast-only bad habit-eats 4speeds and rear tires rapidily even when driven reasanable(rarely more than 3/4 throttle and even rarer past 5000rpm)
any way--glad i found yall!
i posted some pics and info of opey on a german?site several years ago--here is the link--seems to still work.
camera is junk and dosnt even take pics where aimed--$15.00!(must live cheep to buy race rubber!)
one day will try to post good pics.
finding yall is realy good!
