A 1986 Opel Manta 1.8 GT Hatchback. It's a little rubbish cosmetically in places and obviously needs a few touches here and there to make it perfect but is solid as a rock underneath - oh and the interior is minty fresh. I'll update you if he does any mods or anything :D

Sweet. I love mantas but they just seem to rot so much. Let me know if he needs any bits, I'm starting breaking a manta next week. I'd like to point out it's very rotten before anyone gets up set about destroying a rare car. That one looks really tidy though :) .

Is it a hatch that you're breaking burns? Also what wheels are on it?

Yeah it's a hatch. Not sure what wheels are on it, I've only seen the back of it, but I'll wack some pictures up when it arrives. It was free, so I "bought" it with out viewing.

My Brother had one just like that after his 2.0 Fiat Mirafiori Chevette. I remember having to go and drag it out of a field of a 90* bend one morning.

It was a bit bananna shaped with a crease in the roof, so was written off. :( .
