Just a short introduction, i'm not much of a writer. My name is
Dave and i live in Thornton, Colorado (north suburb of Denver).
I'm married with two kids, one in college one in highschool. Our
opel is a family project, my daughter named it odie, hence my
user name. The car is a 1970, i bought it on Jan 1, 2000 and drove
it home just in time for the rear axle to give its last revolution.
My son and i swapped out a used assy from a 1971 gt (easier
to get parts for??) and have done most of the drivetrain work i.e.
brakes, motor mounts, seals etc. The car has some rust, the
drivers floor pan being the worst but the previous owner did have
some body work done already. The car is far from driveable, in two years i have managed to dismantle far more than i should have, but once the body repairs are done it should go back together quickly. Look forward to conversing with other opel addicts and learning more about the car.
