    Hello,from Milwaukee

    Hi,
    I have had many GT's in the past, although few have made it on the road, I got tired of grinding the bondo on them about 10 years ago so I decided to find a decent car to start with.So, back in '96 (I think) I found me a nice 1 owner 1970 gt with 54k on it. Real clean interior,decent body with minimal filler and taken care of most of its life. Only problem, ran like $%#^!!!! Bad knock in top end. Drove it like this for a little while till I decided to park it and take care of the problems.
    Fast forward almost 10 years, still have the car, still has the problems, (i got sidetracked for a while ) But,the car has always been stored indoors so she still looks ok. I am in the process of resurecting the lil girl and will be needing someone in the general Milwaukee Wisconsin area to direct me in the right direction for a dependable machine shop,ect. Also wouldnt mind just chewing the fat with a few local Opelers.if there are any people interested in maybe swaping parts or just hanging out. Please drop me an e-mail at 2trackeratsbcglobal.net
    Thanks
    Joe

    Welcome to gt.com, Joe! You have found the place to get unlimited expert, experienced help! Everything you need to know has either been discussed in detail (use the search feature) or will gladly get looked into by guys who know every nut and bolt of these cars.
    You mentioned machine shops, we just covered that last week, by all means the best tip there is be sure the shop knows Opels or they could easily wreck something.
    As far as restorable GTs go, it sounds like yours is one to die for...
    Put a picture in the Opel Garage so we can see it!

    Welcome to the Opel Community, Joe. This sight makes us all "locals" for the purpose of "chewing the fat" and just hanging out in general.
    Heaps of good info and Opel experience available too.

    Thanks for the welcome,
    i have been monitoring this website for quite a while and know that 99% of the troubleshooting answers lie in the archives. All I need to do is READ,READ,READ!
    This website in my opinion is the ONLY place to look for the answers!
