Some rotting Opels

Recommended Posts

So sad to see. Manta Rallye models are scarce as hens' teeth. I had a '73 back in college. It was a really fun car to drive.

Thank you for asking, but I'm not interested. If the car was closer and I was younger I'd probably look into it, but not now. It's a shame, really. A few years ago I tried to find one and eventually gave up. I have no room for another project, nor am I interested in taking one on at this stage of my life. Anything else I buy from now on has to be something that I can drive home, and that needs little more than an oil change and a tune-up. I do hope that someone rescues it. There are a couple of organizations like the Opel Motorsports Club and the Opel Association of North America that would likely have people interested in it.

I've tried to find a club to contact but most seem inactive or have closed Facebook pages.  These cars are likely to be crushed soon.  The last owner was a hoarder but the new folks are clearing things out.

It's in Clatskanie, Oregon.  I can give you the guy's contact info if you PM me.

Just post the information here, and I'll post the link to this thread on the Opel forum. That way people on both forums can have the information.
