    Talkinghello from aus!

    hey all, just found this site, through another site posted on my cars club forum.
    just wondering is this a general opel site or just the gt? are the vectra and astra included? if they ever made it to the US?
    are there any general opel US sites or is euro trash not a popular thing.
    i understand from movies americans are big on american cars.

    anyway, no doubt you'll get a little traffic from our club as we begin to spill into this one to show off our bitchs
    im the proud owner of a 2l DOHC redtop calibra. never exported to the US and very few exported to australia.

    the calibras here are dying breed, succumbing to accident, high repair costs due to stupid, undertrained, unsophisticated mechanics and a general lack of promotion from uncle holden.
    from this stupidity and underpromotion we were punished. holden deciding not to import anything besides the vectra, astra and barina. the turbo astra are a very rare breed indeed also. some waiting 6 months to come into possesion of one!

    ohwell, hopefully illl find some usefull sh*t here
    cheers.

    Welcome to the forum. This forum is for mostly Opels that were imported to the US, not just GTs. With that said we have a great deal of members from outside of the US (One from your way in NZ).

    What part of Australia are you located?

    The Kadett is OLD!

    The Kadett is a genuine Opel Rally car from 1967 - long before the Gemini was thought of! It was brought here in 1972 to race in rallys.
    The GT was brought here by the original owner from Boston, Mass - her father gave it to her for her 21st birthday .. in 1972
    The Monzas were imported by someone else and the 1987 Ascona is one of 27 imported by GM(NZ) Ltd as a test car for the intoduction of the Vectras in 1988. I guess that stray Opels just follow me home!
