1978 Opel Manta DeLuxe 1600S from Netherlands
Tomorrow's classic sports car
Before I bought the car, it hadn't been driven for 2 years, so the brakes had to be revised.
I had to replace the clutch, the original one was still in the car, but totally worn.
I replaced the exhaust pipe, because it was rusty and made too much noise.
There are now a few very little rust spots (only a few millimeters), I want to let them have treated before they grow larger. Also, I want to restore a poorly-restored damage by the previous owner.
Although the car is 25 years old, it still drives like new. It is very comfortable and each time it's fun to drive it, but the engine is a bit noisy.
It is still in original condition: first paint, never restored, interior only with minor traces of use.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
