Man that is pure sex. I love Opels. I have a '69 GT at home that we rebuilt and did a rearend swap in. Nothing like that of course and I really like the Manta's as well. That's just sex though.

take a look at the tail lights for the skyline, and i love the coilovers coming out of the hood, but the ricers will ruin that for me soon i'm sure...

They look almost exactly the same from certain angles.

Both are absolutely beautiful.

Oh ok, I get it. I though it was under the hood somewhere. I guess it helps to know what the stock version looks like, I thought the exterior was only slightly modded.

you would think if he was going to remake the frame and mount the shocks the way he wanted it would be unnecessary for them to stick out the hood...it's kinda silly.

It's even the right color for that car. Vintage orange rocks on vintage cars. Ran an HPDE monday and there were 2 Alfa's there. One was a 72 GTV set up for vintage racing. Absolutely the most bestest alfa coupe. It looked a lot like that Manta.

I love funky tough looking cars.

I willing to bet that's the only way he could get the car lower without sacrificing suspension travel/geometry.

yeah, really nothing else he could have done unless sacrificing lots of travel:
