Name is Ed. Recently bought a 73 Opel. It came out of Louisville,Ky. Always wanted one (since 76 when a bud of mine in the Marines had a beautiful little 70 GT). Have owned a lot of cars... 56 chevys, 56 ford pickups,40 Cadillac LaSalle, 56 Cadillac ,69 Cadillac convertible, 64 Triumph tr4, MG midgets...but never owned what my heart yearned for , a GT! FINALLY, I got one. I bought sight unseen and it does have some rust issues but thanks to this forum and a couple of great guys on here(shotout to Gene and Nick) , I am going to be able to remedy this.
This forum has been really valuable in getting parts and info to get me on the right track. The information is incomparable and I spend most of my free time on here LEARNING.
Back to my mid-life crisis. Recently I bought a 76 VW Westfalia(camper), A 74 BMW 2002 and of course my little 73OPEL. My wife pointed out that all three were german born. I had not paid any attention .Probably need to lay off the Becks beer for a whileSeriously, this is the best forum I have been on.Thank you.
