Opel Manta



I did my first donut in an Opel Manta. White, white rims, bodykitted, borrowed (of course). I can still remember the exact junction near Guildford. It only gives me mild palpitations to think about it nowadays. It put me off RWD for years.
2010 9972 C4S PDK: Carrara White, Sea Blue. Mostly driven, lightly modified, occasionally tracked, and usually a bit grubby.

Hi Jay, another ex Corrado forum user who remembers your car well, a pic i snapped in 2005 - Great to see you doing a 997, just got a Gen2 myself, you might remember my Rado, i had it shipped to Australia with me

Hey Jay,

Remember your Raddo from the Edition 38 meet ups, but never got to see your 964 or 996. Were these also project cars, any pics of them.

I have also now finally decided to let go of my Corrado VR6 and make the move to 911 ownership.

911's seems to be the logical progression for Corrado owners.

Sorry I missed these replies, not been on here enough clearly! Thanks for all the kind words and it definitely seems like a logical progression from Corrado to 911 as there are a lot of ex corrado forum people on here.
I do remember you shipping the Corrado to OZ arthouse. that was dedication. I always loved that shot of the Rado and hope I can be as happy with the 997 as I was with that car!

I have been stripping down and clearing the decks of the 3.8s engine to get it all out of the way so not much actual progress, but the garage is now clear (apart my lads new gokart) and I can start getting on with things.

I didn't get anything under the tree for the 997 so I treated it to these. KW variant 3s in GT3 spec. So will need some little sleeves for the front struts, but they will let me get it sitting where I want it and be good enough for a bit of track work when I get the urge.

Roll on 2019!
