2 - early 1969 1.1L GTs (both made in 1968; one is for parts)
1 - 1970 Spyder (conversion completed but needs finishing)
1 - 1971 (soon to be dual-purpose race car)
3 - 1972's (two are automatics; two are parts cars)
I have also owned another 1972 auto (sold to someone in CT) and a 1973 (gave it away the same day I bought it).
Plus, had couple '71 Mantas (used as winter rats).
1. 69 GT (Rusted into the ground, stripped for parts sent to the junkyard in the sky)
2. 70 GT My baby, in storage for 18 yrs.
3. 72 Moms, run over by a logging truck, stripped for parts. (Didn't like the sun roof in it anyways!)
4. 72 GT Moms repalcement GT. Daily driver for her.
But if all goes as planned I should have a '71 parts car next week. (With any luck and no intervention from "wiser" folk, I would like to part out the '71 until the '73 is done, and then take the shell of the '71 and turn that into the autocrosser of my dreams, I think my Integra is toast).
I would also like to find a Manta and a Kadett Wagon (I have a soft spot for wagons).
I need to find a job that pays more money but doesn't require me to show up.
I've had over 30 GT's, mostly between the years of 92 and 97 when I was buying GTs for 500 and selling for 1500 because there was just an unbelievable supply of good cars that needed the 4 lugs in the fuse block cleaned to make them run. Seriously, I bought and sold many a GT from the Dallas, TX with only an electrical fix.
So now 1 manta, and my one GT body only from high school back in 93.
I do have a job that pays me even if I don't go to work. Its just that it won't last forever if I don't work.
I had a
'71 in '88-'91
2 '70s '92-'95
and my latest
a '72 that I restored to look just like my 1st, because I miss it and seriously regret selling it. Its a keeper. I could see getting another, if I could find a decent project in that weird tacky metallic green that I like so much.
I started with a 72 Manta Rallye(auto), then got at 74 Manta Luxus(stole the gauges out of the Rallye and put them in the Luxus). Sold the 72 in 1981 and sold the other in 1983 and bought a 72 GT which I still have. I would like another GT or Manta but I don't have the room.
