    Welcome and thank you for your time spent on our country's behalf! Small words to try to convey a huge sentiment. Don't ever forget that we (I) KNOW some of what you have been thru and hold you in very high esteem because of it.
    As for an Opel--you deserve one! let us know when you catch your dream and let us share in your joy. I just bought a 72 in tiptop shape--it waas from Hawaii and has 43,700 actual miles. Most all of the work has already been done by a man who absolutely loved the car--it was his 5th Opel and it came with a truckload of parts. I'm happy as a pig in mud so understand both your angst to get one back in your life--I waited 30 years till the right one came along--as well as the joy you will feel. Right now my favorite mechanic, my son, (100 miles south of me) has the car since we picked it up last weekend to tune it up and it will be in my garage this weekend. I CAN'T WAIT! Starting to have those old dreams of driving it down the road.
    The best to you and keep us posted!

    Exclamation

    Don't buy a GT in Europe....you will pay too much for it!!
    Buy an Opel you can't get in the USA....you can fill it with GT parts and ship it home at the end of your tour....then you pick up a rust free (LOL) GT from a dry state.....
    .....And that's how the madness begins........

    I love Mannheim!

    My mother's home town is Mannheim, and I visit often... first place I ever drove an Opel...or a stickshift for that matter (when I was 16). You'll enjoy Heidelberg, too. I like Rionart's idea for collecting rare, cool Opel parts while you're there!

    Hello hansenmd5,

    I live in Wiesbaden, Germany - if you need some adresses of Opel GT part dealers or were to get parts, OPEL GT Events just let me know.

    If you are into some German you also can look here : www.gt-forum.de
