    2019 Opel Nationals!

    The 2019 Opel Nationals will be held October 17th thru the 19th at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. The show in conjunction with the Fall AutoFair.

    Charlotte AutoFair - The Largest Collector Vehicle Event in the Southeast!

    This will be the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Opel GT!

    The actual show date is Saturday, October 19th. No Sunday show. The Saturday show will run longer and the overall AutoFair awards will be held under the lights in the NASCAR winners circle!

    A lot of planning has already been done behind the scenes with the speedway officials. Things could change but as of right now, we will be located beside the "Showcase Pavilion" where really cool cars are shown at each AutoFair. This is notable because it looks like we may be invited to show 4 or 5 of out best Opel's inside the Showcase Pavilion. I would like to see an excellent example of a GT (preferably a 1969), Kadet, Manta, etc.

    Hotel information will be coming very soon. There will be a club "rate". If you have any suggestions on hotels, please post on here. We usually had been staying at the Holiday Inn Express. I believe they just upgraded their rooms a few months ago.

    Also in the works: A band will play at either our location inside the speedway during the day or at our hotel on the evening of the 19th. Three of the guys will play for us and believe me, just the three of them are good.

    The Part-Time Blues Band

    Hopefully, we can have one of the best Opel Nationals to date! More info to come soon!

    Suggestions are welcome!

    The moving of the date to October has really thrown a wrench into my plans. I don’t know that I am going to be able to come during that time. What was the deciding factor of them moving the dates? Car show competition from Pigeon Forge?

    The reason it was moved was mainly due to the heat inside the racetrack. As some of you know, the heat at the Fall Autofair during September was brutal. People complained a lot about the heat at the AutoFair officials. The officials decided to give it a try. Everyone seemed to be very happy about the move. Also, there is a propensity for hurricanes, which has interrupted the Fall show a few times in years past. Hope you can work it in to your schedule!
