Just registered and am re-learning lots about the Opel, I had one new in 1971 and drove it hard for 9 or 10 years. I have often wished I had kept it. One spouse latter and a new one who is encouraging the purchase of another one I hope to be an active opeler in the very near future. I was quit suprised to learn so many Canucks are active with opels I haven't seen one for years and now I see at least 5 owners within 50 miles of me, amazing!!
