    Anybody in NC?

    My very first car was a 1972 Opel GT. I bought it in 1976 when I turned 16. It was green with a white interior. 1900cc/automatic with 72k miles. I added factory air that I salvaged from a junk yard. I loved the car and drove it for 2 years until it made intimate contact with a street light (I let a friend borrow it...)

    Anyway, I was hoping someone in my area had one--I'd love to have a close look at one again.

    Anybody need help with their a/c systems, I'm an expert. I'm also pretty good at restorations--just got done with my '77 'vette:

    That's only about an hour or so from here--no problem--I drive that way often for photo shoots. Great!

    Do you have all the parts to make it work? If so I have all the tools and equipment to hook it up and make it run cold--I can throw it all in my van.

    I live in the northern part of Raleigh and would love to hook up with a fellow Opeler. Contact me via email at [email protected] and we can get together.

    Do you have the factory a/c console that fits over the normal center console? I think they're kind of a neat idea!

    Any a/c shop can make new lines--while you wait usually and for not very much $.

    The dryer needs to be near the evaporator--it's also the accumulator.
