    So what you are saying is that I can take this one out of 30 year storage, take it to the track, and win every race.

    Not many Opels left racing circle tracks, period!

    Mantas were always more successful than GT's thanks to a better suspension design, FYI.

    Anything is possible with the right amount time and money. 30 year old outdated suspension running against modern day race parts, ehhh probably not...

    What makes it not worthy of anything else?
    Opel GTs are not GM products

    I've had conversations with a few Texans that used to race Gt's on the dirt track. I think it would be a lot of fun!

    "Kara," 1972 Opel GT Targa "Fancy Rat Rod"
