    Andy, a weekend meet and rotating locations is a great idea.
    Will PM all the FL Opel folks I know of.

    OB, the Turkey rod run is out for me, daughters 16th Birthday and Thanks giving day.

    Delusions of Grandeur

    I'm interested in attending the Turkey Rod Run in November (that's Daytona, right?).
    If anyone wants to chip in for gas, they can ride with me from Tampa. I'll probably take the Magnum RT instead of an Opel.
    I've attached a photo that I took less than an hour ago (while driving) of a Cadillac Cimarron complete with Continental Kit. Something about it compelled me. Sort of like affixing a "V-12" badge onto a Kadett!

    Hi Jonzo, I have your contact info.

    I sent PM's to most FL folks I know (20), please Email me your contact info so I can get a list together for a meet.
    A central location would be nice, maybe Orlando, on a Saturday, early November before the holidays........
    Let me know your thoughts.
    Thanks

    Sorry.. as much as I would love to meet up with all of you, that is a long long way from where I live, but for those of you that live near Pensacola, I'm game for any get together that comes up in the near future. If anybody is traveling through this area, they are more than welcome to stay here on there way their destination. So says my woman who is typing this even as we speak (dictation--I'm a good secretary, and an even better cook(HA!)).

    Something different...

    Hey Guys, are any of you ready for a real Opel challenge:
    http://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/...html?refer=rss
    This thing has so much potential as a hauler or tow vehicle I hope one of you boys can save it....
    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly and for the same reason.

    VW / Opel meets

    I think Opel's and VW's would work together I have a site that is all about VW's and we do weekly meets and Event all over. I think it would work out great.... nether one are in production anymore so they have something in common. Any Opel is welcome on my VW site. If need be I could even make a category
    for Opel's .

    So I stopped by that Junk Yard I must say he thinks He's got GOLD he wouldn't sell me the parts I need But he would sell me the whole car for 600.00 and the only thing that is good on the car is the parts I need. I will keep looking . If anyone wants to buy the car let me know I will buy the parts I need from you

    Well, I don't own an Opel anymore, but I am a car guy, I'm 27 and live in Tarpon Springs, Fl which is about 15 mins north of clearwater. My quick story is: I bought an Opel GT when I was in high school that had been sitting for over ten years, but it was set up for road race. It had a 1barrel side draft carb with a garrett (sp?) turbo and a 4pt roll bar. I got it running the first day I bought it, actually, it was about 4 hours after I got it. I had a new windshield and seal put in, spent the 3 hours freeing up the headlight cable stuff, got them working flawlessely, removed about half the interior, I got the car running, and almost driving, and a neighbor called code enforcement on me, I put the car in storage for 1 year before selling it because I couldn't get my tools there to work on it, so I was sad and mad when getting rid of it, but I still like these cars, I really want to see one with a turbo on it since these cars are so light, I'm sure they would do good.

    I drive a mitsubishi 3000gt turbo now, I have 2, a maroon one and a blue one, and I also have a toyota tacoma prerunner, I would meet up with you guys and like to check out some of your cars if you don't mind a person with a different make.
