I recently joined this forum. I don't have an Opel (yet), but I have always had a real soft spot for the Manta As and hope to pick one up at some point. My brother used to own a '73 Manta 1.6S (UK) back in '83 which was a lot of fun. He abused it a little more than he should have (Xmas '83 with him doing donuts outside in the frozen / snow covered car park springs to mind) and the car was later sold to finance another project. I never forgot this metallic green Manta though.
I am currently living / working in Japan for the foreseeable future and in the time I have been here (which has been a few years now) I have seen 2 '73 / '74 1.9 Berlinettas - one in Tokyo and one in Nagoya. A nice '73 Berlinetta / Luxus would be a good addition.
I also have a great interest in the other 60s / 70s Opels (Rekord / Commodore / Kapitan / Kadette / Ascona) and Opels produced in other parts of the world (ever seen a '74 Chevrolet Iran?).
Other current vehicles (yawn) are Toyota Camry (2000) / Nissan Terrano 2.7 TD and '72 Plymouth Satellite Sebring Plus 400-4BBL (in storage).
Looking forward to talking / learning more about older Opels.
