Well, a number of years ago I purchased this Opel from my brother, who had recently picked it up in a trade for another vehicle. I drove it for a while, but when it started to give me problems (vapour lock?) I was still in University, flat broke, and it got parked.
Nearly 10 years, a wedding, 3 kids, and a few jobs later, I am finally planning on at LEAST getting it running half decently.
It is a bone-stock 1971 GT, Solex carb, 3 speed automatic. The motor was a replacement, but I am not positive if it is from the same year of vehicle or not.
It was hit in the drivers side rear pretty badly, but it was pounded out and filled with bodyfiller (go figure).
I got it running well enough on Sunday to drive it from the front to the back, but then it got hot and the fuel issue was back. When I got up this morning, I notice it "went" in the driveway - brake master cylinder leak somewhere. You can tell it was facing south by how faded the paint is, as well as the "black" seat covers that are now grey/white. I know, I know, some people on here will be thinking "why'd he let it get that bad"... consider myself chastized...
Anyway, here are some pics... Eventually I'd like to put a 3.4L in it, mated up to a 5 speed, much the way that I've seen others have been doing on here (Namba209 for example).
Anyway, just introducing myself.
