    Bob, I found an old issue of the Blitz from May 2002 in there it's states Don Cameron Fox II he died on April 13,2002 at age 45 Motorcycle Accident

    Also found Issue November Blitz 2004 although I didn't know this Great Opeler others might

    Ron Illsley passed away on October 8, 2004 from Cancer.


    I also found a link Riley Taylor , West Chicago by opeljohn in 2005

    To answer your question, there once was an active Opel club in the Chicago area but it is no longer meeting. It was called the North American Opel G.T. Club and even had its own newsletter. Unfortunatly Riley Taylor who was the glue that bound the club together passed away some years ago and the club was folded into the Opel Motorsport Club ( OMC) out of Las Angeles CA.

    Thanks for that info Mike, I've updated accordingly. I didn't realize Ron Illsley had passed. Gil and Roger Wilson always spoke highly of him.

    I also found that reference to Riley, but no solid date. I'm sure it's in an old Blitz issue somewhere.

    One lost from the UK was Tom May recently. A lovely old boy and worked in Opel all his life most noticeable Irmscher UK. Not sure if he was a member on here but definitely one of the long time GT fanatics. Think he died about 3-5 years ago.
