    I'm in Victoria, BC. My Opel GT is a '71 in need of restoration......but she does run....sort of....she'll run better once I clean the fuel tank and replace a plugged fuel filter.

    Any Canadian Opelers in New Brunswick or southern Nova Scotia? I'm going to be visiting some family and friends next month, and will be driving through to Moncton, NB then down to Port Maitland, NS (near Yarmouth) for a little vacation time.

    Hi Bob,
    I live 2 minutes from Halls Harbour, which is about 10 minutes from the 101 highway. I suspect that would be the highway you would travel on through Nova Scotia to get to Port Maitland. I have a 72GT that I drive almost daily and have talked to you at one point on some pistons you had. I have a motor I like to rebuild, maybe you could bring me some pieces that I could buy from you to help pay for your trip!! There is a great machine shop 40 minutes from here, going towards Port Maitland, that I am sure you would enjoy. They mainly build engines, even have a CNC machine that ports heads. One of the owners has drag raced a 72 GT for years.

    Yes, I would take the 101 most of the way down, but I prefer to drive the 1 for the last part of the trip! Mom grew up in Meteghan, and I have an uncle in Saulnierville (he's a former Canadian Airforce general), so I like to see how much the towns have (not) changed since the last time I went through!

    What parts are you looking for? I ask because I'm not sure what I will drive. I might take my '72 Ascona wagon, but I might also buy my motorcycle by then. Tough to carry parts on the bike!

    Bob,
    Cam, crank, and rods are good. Have some seized lifters and block has a .0005 taper. Thinking of boring it out to 2 litre. I have a great machine/engine shop to go to and with the great information you have been sharing, I just need to figure out what pieces I need.
    Thanks, Dwight

    I'm Steve from Victoria. My '71 Opel is quietly stored in a garage as I poke around e-bay acquiring parts and a '73 Triumph GT6 I bought a a month ago in San Francisco, so I've got both cars to restore. Good thing I've got plenty of garage space.

    Currently I'm quite busy landscaping my backyard and installing a patio and lawn etc. Always a few projects on the go.

    Hi Dale,
    Regarding my Opel GT....I'm still at the stage of locating bits and pieces and assessing the car and doing research before I begin the Opel restoration. I've also got to focus on getting my recently imported Triumph GT6 running safely so I can get it inspected to complete it's importation process.

    With luck I'll be at the Opel meet in Tacoma.......I won't have the Opel running, so I'll bring our minivan. At least the van has air conditioning.
