1974 Opel Manta

A guy down the street asked if I wanted another Opel Manta for $200 with a thrown rod. He may have ended up just giving it to me so he wouldn't have to pay to tow it. I figured what the heck, what were the odds? I heard of guys "easily" putting smallblocks in them and doing wheelies.

Seemed like a possible option. I believe I took a few cosmetic parts to use on "my car" and perhaps the tires, ...then sold the hulk for $50.
