    Roger's Opel Engineering

    I've been carrying a card around in my wallet for about 15 years with a phone number for "Roger's Opel Engineering" in Artesia, CA. I did a Google search, and it appears this company is now closed. Anyone know what came of them?

    Roger Wilson "retired" a few years back. He still may be puttering around with his own Opel's.

    Yep. Somewhere in my "EFI 2.2 Motor build" thread there is some discussion of him retiring. The head on my engine is one of the last things that he did.

    UnhappyRoger Wilson's passing

    Hi Clubbers,
    you've probably heard, but Roger Wilson passed away on August 3rd. If you're interested in Opel GT parts, (drive train and engine, not body) you can contact me for more details, or Ralph Coates, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
    In the meantime, if you knew my father, our family would love to hear from you. Please leave a message, memory, or photo at www.weremember.com/roger-wilson/2g8n/memories
    Thanks for your friendship over the last 40 years or so!
