    Smile15 years old and owner of two GT's

    Hi all, I am 15 years old and from CT, I am a proud owner of two Opel GT's. I bought both of them myself, one is a 1970 that I bought for $850. The other is a 1969 Opel GT that I bought for $250. The 1970 appears to have a good engine and body, but the interior is shot; the 1969, appears to have a good engine and interior, but the body is shot. I love these cars; fixing one up is going to be my hobby for the rest of my high school years. I'll be looking for advice on how to proceed in restoration which I will post seperatly.
