    Army GT owner

    Bought an orange 72 Opel GT from a guy in cadillac, Michigan about six weeks ago. It's in great shape. It has the original 1.9 liter with solex and runs great. It needs things like new paint and I need to fix the blower motor, rear defroster and get some heat in that thing. In the future I want to put a bigger engine in it, bigger rims and maybe a targa kit. Will put a better radio in and maybe get the A/C fixed in it. We'll see. Unfortunatley, I'm headed to Mosul, Iraq for the next year and won't be able to get anything done to it. I'm sure you'll be hearing from me in the future.

    Yeah man! Keep your head down and your nose clean (very dustry over there! ). My 23 (mixed service) went by quick and am looking for the retirement to kick in.

    I'll echo what has been said about your service to the country, been there done that with 7 years in SEA as part of my USAF service. Got to retire, twice, now it's all free money. Gotta just love the GTs. I got one too, soon it'll be a real smoker on the road. Enjoy and welcome aboard.
