Today was the start of my 2019 Show and Shine and Shine Season with the Opel GT. Other years I entered a BMW E30 M3. This event was about 400 mostly muscle cars and street rods but a good selection of "other" cars. I lost out to a '75 Alfa Romeo which was heavily modified with body flares and a Ford V8. It was a nice looking Alfa. I did get a lot of satisfaction with all the positive comments. Opel GT are non-existent in my neck of the woods but there were a number of fans that remembered the Opel GT. Some as owner's, great transmission as I could hit 90mph in 3rd, to the best, "my boy friend had one back in '72 and we had a lot of fun in that Opel and no I did not marry him".
I have 7 more shows which I'm entered in and if the positive response is like this show it was very satisfying.
