    Spotted a GT in Canton, MS about a year ago on Hwy 51 while I was moving to tupelo.

    Also in the movies - a gt toward the end of Gumball Rally during the scene with the two girls in the porsche, in LA, while they were being followed by the motorcycle cops.

    Yup I've met him too. He helped me out when I was living in Alabama and the rear end went out in my GT. Went up to his house and swapped it out in his driveway. He was a nice guy, I wanted to see if he would part with any of the GT's he had left but he never responded to the emails I sent.

    Sounds like Dale Chaudiere's daughter Ashley and maybe one of her friends. They live somewhere near Tacoma WA I believe. Did it have the headlights up and were there eye-lashes?

    Finishing up a bare-metal, nut & bolt rotisserie restoration of my '71 Opel GT; next up is my 28,000 mile Garage Find GT, stored since 1975, which needs a LOT of love...

    Pedro and Long Beach Sightings

    I live in San Pedro (part of the LA harbor) and there are a few in town.

    Theres a yellow GT (really nice) that was parked on pacific blvd for a while (found out that the owner has passed away and the car is now gone).

    Theres a blue manta with double shelby type white stripes - I have heard that this owner actually has a garage full of others.

    Last sunday (6/26/05) I saw a really straight orange GT turn into the parking structure of a high rise on Ocean Blvd in Long Beach. Right across from the Trade Center. I think it actually had the tail strip on it.

    On Harbor Blvd theres a West Marine and one of the Security Guards has Opels, and sometimes drives a Maroon Kadette (a beater but an Opel just the same).

    And then theres PVcar, but I dont think he ever comes to Pedro!

    There was a red Gt that was always at the 76 Union gas station on Silver Spur In PV, or actually Rolling Hills Estates. The owner worked there. I saw that car about 3 months ago and it motivated me to buy an Opel Gt again. I now drive mine around PV, Torrance and Redondo Beach. I will be putting new rims and tires on the car next Saturday in Torrance. I cant wait..

    I was reading the posts tonight and Jay Leno was on (11.25 EST 7-7-05) and lo and behold the band that was playing outside had a Red Opel Gt to the left side of the screen. Don't know what time he comes on out in the different time zones, but they pan over the car 2 or 3 times. Almost thought it was a Z until I saw the front bumper twice. It was a Gt. Anyone here on the boards car? Jarrell
