About Simon                             About Nelson


The original Manta400.com site and Yahoo Group was closed at the start of 2011 after 12 years as the number one Manta and Ascona 400 builders, restorers and motorsport site.

Sadly I did not have a complete offline copy of the vast site after a hard drive crash a couple of years back meaning I could not update it or move it onto another host without the effort of rebuilding the huge 500 page site from scratch, so it was largely unchanged since the major project car updates in 2007.

Replacing it is this simple personal site featuring our own cars and photo archives from the original site. I hope you all enjoyed the manta400 site from its inception in 1998, from it came a successful club, stunning cars with ever higher build standards and lifelong friendships.
