View Full Version : ITB Opel ready to go

07-26-2005, 11:16 PM
Well it's been three years since I started rebuilding my 72 ITB Manta that I originally raced in the late 80's and eary 90's in the SFR. It was on the back burner while I finished my ITE car that I am currently driving. Right now it looks to good to race, but time will undoubtedly take care of that. The Plan is for my shop manager to take it through drivers school and we will see what happens after that. He put a lot of time into the car and that is his reward. The interior still needs some repaint and the cage is circa 1986 (it will be updated before live racing). Enjoy the pics.
