Plural Opel Coupes, Black Metal, Mantas!

We can't believe we spaced on this, seeing as Venom frontman Cronos has been known to show up at Spinelli's old LasagnaFarm project from time to time. But if you needed further proof about the supremacy of the Manta, please note that Venom, who likely were attempting to be the scariest band in the world, manned their guitar chair with a bloke who called himself "Mantas" for a period of 25 years. One Manta may be poop-yer-pants awesome, but to really welcome the kids to hell, you need a bunch of 'em. Yep.

I swoon over my dearly departed 1988 Mazda MX-6 LX. It was the first car I ever owned. I did all my own work on it. The car ran well and looked a helluva lot better than the Ford Probe. I'm really dying to import my friends 1989 Lancia Delta Integrale :( On another note...all this Manta talk....all I can think of are blankets. Manta in Spanish is blanket. At least you can get a new "Manta" that way ;)
