  1. Spotted this for sale on Donedeal. Looks a bargain for a tidy looking coupe? https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/opel-manta-gte-c20xe/16661997
  2. Ebay: 86D Berlinetta Hatch

    Apologies Philip. Have to say though, you've really brushed up on your English in the last week or two, or taken my advice . Oh, just out curiosity, did you have far to travel to view it?
  3. Ebay: 86D Berlinetta Hatch

    Do thickos like the guy that wrote that advert (and answered some one's question with more jibberish) not have a single family member or friend that can write in basic English so that people could understand?
  4. Needs putting back to original if feasible tbh.
  5. Brake parts required.

    Hi folks, Need a few bits and bobs so before I go to Ebay just checking to see if anyone has some spares to get rid of. I'm after a set of pads & shoes, front brake hoses x2, rear brake hose & a tie rod end. Anyone with some or all let me know, Cheers Paul
  6. Solid looking Ascona for reasonable price Shirley? Throw side skirts, wheels and back bumper in a skip & a coat of white paint, Bob's your uncle http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1979-OPEL-ASCONA-2-0-5-speed-not-manta-escort-E30-/292104160839?hash=item4402c3c647:g:0p0AAOSwrhBZCMyv Wouldn't let me add photo to OP.
  7. Winning bid: £5,900.00 Looks like the sale went through guys, fair price for non runner without test but it did look like a decent example.
  8. hello

  9. Ian, the auction ended 10 days ago, did the sale go ahead? Hope so.
  10. Could be a bargain , non runner atm. https://www.gumtree.com/p/vauxhall/classic-mk1-vauxhall-carlton/1213560550
  11. Some bidders tend to put in artificial high bids to find out what an opposing bidder's maximum bid is, so while he withdrew his bid chances are he may well bid again as auction nears end. That's one reason I never bid myself on Ebay items, preferring to use a snipe program that bids my maximum amount seconds before auction ends. If my bid is successful I have my item at a price I am happy to pay, otherwise it was too much. Also prevents getting into 'bidding wars'.
  12. 2.0 CDI Manual Carlton. Nice car, at £1k at present. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/192082581641?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  13. Nice car, and not normally one to pick faults but was in my own Manta today and one of my window winders is missing the round rubber part and was thinking of replacing them with a black pair (it has a burnt orange interior) and thought they'd look wrong, I notice this car has black, would they be the correct ones?
