Hello, my name is Donovan O'Brien. I live in Camarillo, CA, and this is my 1974 Opel Manta Rallye.

I bought this car a little over a year ago at the age of 17. For the longest time, I have always loved these old Opels and dreamed of owning one. Coming from a family of muscle car enthusiasts - we have four Mustangs and my brother is restoring his '72 Corvette - there was a bit of confusion when this car pulled into the driveway. But they have grown to love it and now my oldest brother wants one too.

All the paint and body work was finished before I got it, and being a California car, it was completely rust free, so all I had to do was rebuild the engine, transmission, and I tackled the brakes and suspension while it was apart. 

It likes to give me a hard time, but when it behaves, it is a blast to drive.

Worth every penny I spent over my budget 🙂

I've been in the vintage / luxury resale fashion industry for 20+ years so owning vintage cars is the perfect fit for me.  I've had this car since 2012 and still love the two-tone colorway.

1977 scout II    Denver Colorado and crushing the west. 

 

in 2016 as our mini body restoration progressed the last step was choosing the color.    The original color on the scout was  fire orange with a vinyl   white decal.  Unable to find any one to duplicate the decal with out spending big money, my wife came up with the idea of doing the top in white and the rest of the body in orange.   We got some color books the size of phone books from the paint shop and searched colors for a solid hour, and she decided on a shade of BMW Copper Canyon Orange for the body  and Pearl White for the top.

I was looking for a 47 thru 54 Chevy pickup when I came across this on Craig's list and just had to have it.  I love the reaction I get from people young and old, sure it has won it's share of trophy's. But it's the memories that I cherish most from the 5 year old who dragged his father across the parking lot to tell me hey Mr. nice car, to the woman who was celebrating her 80th birthday and wanted to go for a ride in my car, or the women that just wanted directions until she realized my car was a Nash and her dad worked for Nash and had Nash then started blowing kisses at my car and then started crying now thoes are worth more than any Trophy.  Painted Visor BlackPainted Visor BlackArriving at Blue Mountain drive inArriving at Blue Mountain drive inOn Display 8/2014 at Carlisle events in Bloomsburg PaOn Display 8/2014 at Carlisle events in Bloomsburg Pa6/2013 just bought it6/2013 just bought it9/2019 Put new Porta walls on9/2019 Put new Porta walls on
