The Brand without the Pulling Power

The old Manta got a mention today, albeit not a complementary one, in the Business & Finance section of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ Weekly)

The author of this article, Wolfgang Peters, harks back to the days of the solid old Opels and their massive potential and popularity, remembering the Manta being the butt of German jokes (just as the Capri was over here in the UK) and the demise of the marque due to cost-cutting (that sounds familiar)

And the thing is that he's absolutely right - and so are the fans out there, keeping their old Opels on the roads.
