Home sick today so I was pondering......
Where have some of the infamous Opels ended up such as:
1) Car and Driver's -J Edgar Opel
2) Car and Driver's- Ascona Turbo project car "Opel Under Pressure" article ( I think that one was actually featured in another upgrade issue)
3) last car GT to have been imported in 1973 (I was told by a Buick motor division manager that my 73 GT was one of the the last six into the US...who knows?)
4) Blaine Shieds Franken-Opel. A real wolf in sheep's clothing (no paint but recaros, twin webbers, 5 speed, nitros, and a really cool "James Bond type" trap door in the rear panel that would open up to shine a headlight beam rearward towards would-be tailgaters
Blaine is also a talented artist who has created many drawings we have on Opel T-shirts
