One of the first times, or maybe the very first time, I got together with NorCal Opelers
was a meet at Blackhawk Museum in Danville. I drove a yellow '73 GT but I didn't park
it on the circle in front of the Museum with the half dozen or so Opels there.
Somewhere I must have a slide or photo of that time. If someone recorded that event
please post a pic.
I drove that '73 GT to Gil's when he had an open house at his new location, the house
was mostly complete but not finished or painted inside. I don't remember the year.
There were quite a few of Gil's Opel friends from SoCal there that time. It was the
most Opels I had ever seen together at one time. The one I remember especially was
a 3.0 L (6) Manta ! Lots of chrome under the hood, And I got the impression from the
owner that he wound it up on the drive North.
Years ago Opels were parked where Elephant is now. Mini Brute anyone ?
