    New Young Opel Owner

    Hey everyone,

    My names Mark, I'm 17 (18 on Sept. 1st) and I purchased a 1973 Opel GT from a friend's dad with the intent of it being my first project car (and first car too). After rebuilding the engine last summer, I've finally pulled it back out to finish it off (lack of financing) and will hopefully have it on the road by September. It's white with custom maroon interior. I'm really excited to finally have a gorgeous looking car to take care of. If anyone around the Bay Area, CA would like to meet up sometime it'd be great, I've yet to see another Opel GT around on the streets!

    -Mark

    Welcome to the Site, Mark, you're not to far from the stompng grounds of my High School years, Santa Cruz. I can't believe you haven't seen any Opel GTs of late, there are a bunch of members from the bay area, and The Premier Parts Palace for the GT, is also close by, kinda, Opel GT Source, a bit East of you. Enjoy your ride, give it the TLC it deserves and you'll be amply rewarded with a lot of admiration from folks who used to..........(fill in the blanks), or don't know what it is.

    Arguing online is the same as racing in the Special Olympics;
    no matter who wins, you're both still retarded.

    Hi Mark!
    Here's to you getting your Opel on the road soon. I'm in the same boat and looking forward to mine cranking soon. Get us some photos if you can - love to see the 'gorgeous' creature.
    Enjoy the site,
