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!
