Go american style on it

Red color, flames, chrome, hood air intake and offcourse, wire wheels: http://www.daytonwirewheels.com/html/luxury.htm

*edit* some nice color schemes from that mantashop too although still a little bit to sober in my humble opinion

What did you pay for it if I may ask that?


I'd go for the dark grey one with dark red striping or else the one JMke picked.

Reminds me when I was once young; like the Opel back then.

The color below is the color of the time. Opel Manta came with similar color from factory.



This, I love. Mine in yellow.

the car was driven daily up to 2 weeks ago.
fender and sills are fine, a little rust, but nothing serious.
the body needs work, and it needs a new interiour.
for now there aren't any problems yet, but i'm sure that we'll find some
updates might go slow, since i don't have much experience with these things, so please be patient

i like that alfa too, seems to be in an ok state.
