    The 20th anniversary is fast approaching..

    I am going to do a write up on all the last few (19) Carlisle Meets for the upcoming 20th. At minimim I am hoping.. to get 19 pictures of the entire group from each year. I have either lost my pictures, or my newsletters (more on that)

    I need pictures.. !! Especially the early years.

    Email them to me at ez2wire@yahoo.com or

    If you only have hard copies you can email them to me at

    13000 Ashtree Road Midlothian, VA 23114

    and I will scan them for you.

    I should have taken perfect shots (like the baby growing into the teenager composites we see on line so much these days) and saved everything.

    Hindsight being 20/20 and all.. That said its worst than that sounds.

    I lost ALL my OANA newsletters (other than the ones i posted on Hemmings) a older Opel owner was in the hospital and I lent them to his son for him to read. I have never heard back since. My assumption is the man passed and the nurse threw them away.. >.<

    SOooo.. any old newsletters would be great too.. I would love to get a collection of them all back.

    So if anyone wants to step up and help me with collecting all this I would really appreciate it.

    I probably have all of them Charles, BUT I can't recall where I placed them when I moved everything into my barn years ago.

    I have all the Blitz newletters from '86 to present, Opel USA from '84 until '94, all the ODCA's, and should have all the OANA's. I remember seeing them when I closed C & R in '01, but I'll be damned if I know which box they're in these days...

    Love the internet..

    Through some diligent searching of old online archives I found some shots of the 1st year.. Which is better than getting the newsletter at least these are in color. Even found a little text on most of them.

    3rd Annual Opels @ Carlilse 1998

    1998 Year after ClassicOpels Yahoo group started, and I believe helped push the show up a notch. That and the weather.

    Wow! I wonder what has become of the removable hard top convertible GT and the purple one with the kit and wing from 1997?

    I think Mike Pinkleton still has it (In Ohio Maybe?), it was one of the original V6 GTs with the small V6. He documented in on a few of the last OANA newsletters.

    Purple one was never seen again.. and Doug Groves white and red ones with custom engines from 1997 were also never seen or heard from again.

    The red convertible as well has disappeared.

    Be sweet if in 2016 ALL the Opels that showed up over the last 20 years made an appearance.

    The #4 photo in the first set (1996) shows my white Manta Rallye next to the orange GT.
