    OK so maybe i have a problem

    There i was Me and a coworker where making our weekly Pmel run to CO Springs

    We where on powers road i was in the passenger seat half a sleep, we where doing like 45 or 50mph

    then i look off to my right and see this red station wagon with a roof rack

    i say hey that looks like an Opel! quick take the next right

    we circle around make our way back up an access road to what looks like a mech. yard

    i climb out back behind some Chevy truck there is this Kadett wagon

    you could hardly see it behind the tucks and stuff my coworker says how in the hell did you see that car!

    i don't know i say

    next i am off trying to find an owner
    turns out it belongs to some wrecking yard
    it had a very straight body but some rust

    so we climb back in our truck and take off
    my coworker says i don't see how you could have seen that car

    I've known Dave for years. He's waaaayyy beyond a normal Opelholic. I think the guy has more racing parts than I do!

    yep time to face facts I am an Opel nut

    it used to be when some one asked me so you like Opels?
    i would say

    oh I'm not an Opel nut i am just a Chevy guy taking a brake

    Ha Ha

    Today every one at work had to listen to my coworker recount the story of me chasing after this Opel

    when just 2 square feet car was visible

    then this Other Guy times in Hey remember the time when we where TDY to Kansas and you spotted a GT

    I ended up flying back to Kansas from TX buying the GT and driving it back to San Antonio
    Ha Ha

    sure is a good thing I'm in good company on this fourm

    Thanks Gary

    I am wondering how much they want for that car

    the guy i found said it belonged to a wrecking yard

    He also said that his mech. yard was temporary storage until they get setup at a new place.

    it had a real straight body with some rust behind the drivers side door

    Does that sound like the same car you saw a NAPA?

    do you know if it ran when you last saw it

    I must admit that the kadetts are not my favorite style so I didn't much pay attention to it. I think that I saw it sometime last summer... if I remember correctly it was a dark red - maybe even a red primer. I think that I ran into that parts store to get some interior light bulbs for my Challenger. Sorry thats not much help.

    Dave that's how I found both my Gts. I think your brain gets hard-wired to spot those things! Good luck.
