Opel Rallye — Economical, and for it's day, respectable horsepower from a four-cylinder - about 105, if I remember right. My Opel had the rallye package, and the flat-black hood - supposed to cut the glare in the driver's eyes! Very cool! I would recommend it, even today.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economy and good power for the year.

Cons: Solex carburetor finally wore out, as did the camshaft.

Manta — It´s not playable now :-) It´s a rusty project that I´v owned over 14 years. I´ll used it about 10 years and now it waits to be rebuild. +260hp +220km/h + it´s a Manta Originally it was S model with 1600cc engine. Nowdays it has 6 cylinders and lots of special parts waiting.

Pros: Bib engine

Cons: Rust

1 Owner, 25,000 Miles From New Manta Rallye. — One of the early 'skinny bumper' Manta's in Red. Original even down to the solex carb, and runs great.

Pros: Turns heads, no-one knows what it is, handles great even on skinny tyres.

Cons: I don't like adding to the low mileage.

Classic Opel — If you like old cars, you'll love this one. It's not american, so it's not huge V8. In this car is 2.0 liter engine from '80 opel rekord with 100hp and original 4-speed gearbox with open diff. It weighs 900kg, so it's easy to drive with predictable handling. No A/C, power steering, headrests, no seatbelts (!!)...

Pros: Good handling, classic looks, reliable...

Cons: Poor brakes, hard to find parts, it can burn to much fuel if pushed..
