1974 mini left drive panel van on clist:
Is she in jail? Is she an ADV member?
That half-assed front suspension in the GT is the dealbreaker for me.
I want a Manta.
Back in '80 I had this 1968 Cougar XR7 with a freshly built 302 that ran pretty decent. Followed a friend on some back roads into Spokane, he was driving the car pictured above. When we took off I was half giggling to my girlfriend about that little shitter he was driving. I, the Big Stud, had American Muscle. And off we drove to the twisties, my friend in the lead.
Took everything I had to keep up with that bastard.
Opel Forum Now!!!!
I was really hoping for some van murals from this thread. Disappointed.
That's not a real neck face, this is.
That was how I got into the GT! The Manta was my first car!
I still loved the GT better, and the cross leaf suspension was good if properly tuned. Hell, Corvette used it!
In the front?!
I didn't say that!
Seriously, it worked great on the SCCA parking lot races, and the car always felt planted at speeds up to, and over 120mph.
I had an early 80's Econoline in High School. Sky blue, windowless sides. It was called either the "Sears Van" or the "Rapist Van" depending on who was doing the talking.
Everyone wanted it, though.
Yes, from '84 on. Don't forget the AC Ace and of course its progeny.
84 & up vette uses transverse leaf springs...up front?:eek1 I believe you're correct...
Looks like a mid-engine setup, but I could be wrong.
One of the coolest cars I saw at the drags as a kid was a 2 engine 4x4 elcamino.
1 in the front, 1 in the bed.
