We picked up a '71 Opel from my sister. Seemed like a "fun" project for hubby and me to do. I really want to learn to work on cars. We definitely know how to change a light bulb but that is as mechanically inclined as we get, especially since I meandered thru some of the postings - master cylinder (sounds intimidating to me).
Will be definitely looking thru positings and reading every word. Wish us luck.
Good luck and welcome. There is a great Texas group and a Texas web site too. Have fun.
Welcome & hope you have fun with your opel just take your time with
you car & inspect & make it a safe & fun ride ..
Howdy and welcome to the Opelhallics Anonimous
Welcome, we are here to help, use the 'SEARCH' engine and you will find everything you want to know about the Opel.
Now where in Tejas are you located? By knowing this we can put you in contact with others in your area to hold that ladder while you change the light bulb. Also go to the sight http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/texasopel/ or check in with George at opelenvy(at)yahoo.com with some information about yourselves so we can keep you upto date on the events, especially the Octoberfest in Meridian, TX NW of Waco up Hyw 6 on the 22 and 23 of October meet the gang, check out the Opels and enjoy some good ol' homemade German Food prepared by our host the Sedlmeirs at their restaurant "The Autobahn". And again Welcome.

Y'all are so great. Thanks for the words of encouragement. Maybe it's just a matter of getting over the fear of the unknown.
I'm up in Allen, TX just north of Dallas. Sooooo, if we have all of the original parts, the car did start, until it got here, what would you do first if you were me? I'm sure the whole engine needs an overhaul, right? It was parked in somebody's barn for SEVERAL years. What is the list of things you would do to it 1, 2, 3, 4, 5???
PS I'm so excited to have found the forum and look forward to learning so much from y'all
