1974 Opel Manta


Opel Manta I bought a few years ago. The engine died a while back (water pump belt broke and I was dumb). A few years later and I have started working on it again with a revitalized spirit. I sold my other projects and it is all going towards this now. Future plans include a Mercedes motor and some crazy suspension. Check out for more details and tons more pictures.
