Neil, I'm shocked that your car never made it through tech.
We all check out the build diaries full time and your project is top of the pops.

Last night Joline and I watched the second episode of "Counting Cars"- the two-part one about the Turbinator- and at about 26 minutes into the program we about fell off the couch! There was my car, close-up, full frame for about 2 seconds!  Whaddya know!  grin  Fortunately, we had recorded that show.

Jruff:

I built this car over a period of quite a few years.

No, no Corvette steering but it does have '88 Corvette brake calipers. The steering is a Flaming River Ford Pinto rack & pinion. This car is made up of many, many different bits & pieces from various sources.

Jruff;

There are many versions of a Manta Mirage that have been built. Each builder has his own ideas of what works best. If yours was a factory black gelcoat body, it was a special $500 option.

I bought this body from a fellow here in southern AZ and built the chassis and suspension. I'm running a 383 Donovan aluminum block driving a Porsche G50 transaxle turned upside down.

Here is a slide show of my build in approximately chronological order. I made lots of changes as I went along.

Good looking car, nice build. Mine is #120 on the register. I never got to finish the car due to a divorce but it was well worth it. cheesy I also had a Montage with a Mazda rotary adapted to a VW Tranny, boy that was a fun car.

That Montage with a Mazda rotary must have been a rocket ship.

Saturday was great. Lots of folks wandering by asking "What is it? How fast will it go?" Sunday morning, I forgot and left the battery switch on overnight, so this morning the starter goes "clunk" and no jumper cables. Sunday attendance was way down so we hooked up the trailer and came home early today. I saw Sparky on Saturday.
