    Opels at the Sacto Museum?

    I happened to drop in at the Sacramento Auto Museum (or whatever it is called now, formerly the Towe Auto Museum) to ask direction, and as I usually do these day chatted up our Opel GT project, and instantly there was real interest in Opel GTs from most of the people there. I suggested putting our car on display there, thinking at the same time that other NorCal folks might be willing to loan their more pristine cars to the museum for a time.

    So, sometime after Monterey, does anyone what to do this?

    Opels at the California Auto Museum

    I am a docent at the CAM I was elected docent of the year in 2006. The museum has a section that they use to feature local car clubs and show off the cars. It would be exciting to put our cars on display for a period of time. It would need to be in the winter time as our cars are to much fun to drive to have them just sitting around. I live a long ways from the museum but would be interested if anyone would like to set it up.



    Sounds like a plan that could be fun.

    That sounds very interesting. Although I drive my GT occasionally in the cold months, it would be nice to have it on display. Is there a minimum the car has to be there? I might not survive more than 4 months without ...

    I'm off to Idaho in a day or so. I'll make some calls when I get back to see what might be done.

    Hey Mike, do we have an update on this, getting cold and wet?

    Btw, I will have my GT on display at the Sacramento International Autoshow
    Sacramento International Auto Show | Home
    Car will be part of the "Rare Exotics and Collector Vehicles", and will be shown from Thursday through Sunday next week.

    We were just discussing that last weekend, inteh context of, if Tinyvettte survives the December race...

    I'll get on it.

    And darned, if I had known about the show I would have tried to enter Tinyvette. There was a themed Lemons car at SEMA, so it could happen.
