Neil’s Manta Mirage #2
Back to the exotics!
One of the most famous Manta Mirages out there is Neil Albaugh’s, which spent the better part of its life as the second car Manta ever built and the factor demonstrator that was all over the magazines at the time. After Manta Cars of Santa Ana, CA went bankrupt, this car and it’s “MANTA 2” license plates spent a few years sitting in the dirt as a cut-up, mostly disassembled “basket case” before it fell into Neil’s hands.
As you can see, the two years he spent restoring the vehicle paid off well. It’s street legal and last I heard is running Arizona plates.
