Great looking manta 4.

these are from around 1983, from the first days of independent suspension!

Hi everybody,

My brother is focused on old cars we used or others ...

Strictly about this thread, he got a Manta 4



And after some works, this is the new old "mamie"



... want to see his other Mamies

And it's just the beginning

Have to agree with turbo. Aluminum upper deck in the '80-'83. Serpent was the first to sell production model at the time. 8th scale was pan cars. biuld by an individual.
