    new young opel owner

    Hello opel fans
    i am the proud owner of a 72 manta ralley. This is my first attempt at a fixer upper car, im 19 and glad to be here amongst all you opel experts. I from NH, but dont worry, im not driving it in the snow and salt around here, after all, the car is 14 years older than myself. I look foward to talkin and learning from all your posts, and finding out if anyone knows of anyone in NH or MA that can get parts to me quick and cheap. -B smith

    Welcome!!! My first Opel was a '72 Raylle(yellow and black). Even though mine was an automatic, it was a fun car. Gotta love the factory fogs. Welcome to the world of opels and enjoy. Carlisle is coming up. Come on down with or without the Raylle. It is a great time.

    Hello and welcome! You couldn't have picked a better car and a better site for your first fixer-upper. Nothing that these folk can't tell you. I have a '70 GT and without this place I would have been in deep trouble getting it on the road.
    Look forward to hearing more from you and congrats on the Manta.

    You're out of luck in this regard...until a year ago there was an Opel wrecking yard in MA, but he lost his lease and ended up throwing most of the parts away at the scrapyard.
    And until 4 years ago I owned a new Opel parts business here in CT, but that went bye-bye as well.

    Still, the community is pretty tight here, and there are a reasonable amount of enthusiasts in New England still. So there may some used parts availability through individuals in these forums, as well as from the various new parts sources out there already (Opel GT Source, Goin Manta, Opels Unlimited, USA Opel, and some private sellers too...).

    Welcome aboard.
