    Opel Club of Texas Octoberfest German Style

    The Opel Club of Texas Fall Event will be hosted by the Sedlmaiers in Meridian, Texas. Come and enjoy the festivities along with a large gathering of Opels, many of which will be grey market Opels, Manta B's, Astra, Vectra, Corsa and maybe even a Bitter, along with some under construction custom GT's, and stock beauties with original paint.

    Additional information to follow: Date: Mid October

    QuestionHow about a show of hands . . .

    WHEN is that going to be held and who is thinking about going? Even with all the Opels we have here, interest appears to be waning.

    I will handle the invitations again. I know who does and doesn't do the www, so I will send out snail mail to those who need it. I just need some info. Times to show up, map to the Sadlmeier house. Are shirts/hats going to be available? Contact numbers if need directions or help. Rough plan. Are we going to be doing the Beer and Brats and their restaurant? Fun run?(not as fun as last time, please )
    I will draw up something and send out the invites either via email or snail mail.
    And as always, it's not by invitation only. Everyone 'Opel' is invited.
    I should be able to get Angie to drive the Sportwagon with the kids, and I'll bring the GT.

    Texas Event/cold air intake

    OPELENVY, Since you seem to be going to the Texas club event the cold air intake mod must be working well?

    Well, I have not driven very much at all since I made the mods. It does work, just have been to busy to test it out.
    Opels have taken a back seat to children these days.
    I just got my ignition rotor modified so I could hook my Jacobs coil back up.
    That brings on adjustments on its own. Timing, plug gap, etc.
    It's never ending.

    Well I was right
    http://www.zurautobahn.com/

    And there are even directions.
    NOTE: BYOB!! Dry county!

    That's a good lookin' menu. My stomach is growling just reading it.
    The site is kinda flaky. At first I couldn't get to it, then I could. I had the exact same link in one window that got nothing as in another window that brought up the site.
    I dunn what's up with that.
    Well it's official then. Let's make the announcement. Octo 23-24 at Kornelia and Dieter Sedlmaier's place.
    I guess we can post info here as well as at www.texasopel.com
    Notice in the picture on the site, Dieter is wearing his Texas Opel shirt. Picture of a Manta B in the dining room. Very nice.
    Here is a quiz. On the home page of the restaurant, there is a car sitting in the parking lot in front of the restaurant. Anyone know what the car is??
    Otto, keep quiet

    You still don't trust your car, huh Tom? Oct 23 is not hot anymore.
    Just get with some other Houston folks and convoy. Follow Rick in his Wagon.
    You'll have to leave Houston one day.

    Car in the parking lot

    Its a Pontiac 'Le Mans'? "DID I WIN HUH DID I WHAT DO I WIN DUH AM I RIGHT?" Its a look alike for the ASTRA to bad its the REAL THING "OPEL" Don't you Love it? And there are more so everyone show and have a good time.

    George this may be a low budget fling, unless some one whats some shirts, hats or what ever, I am house sitting in the shop playing with OPELS with no Employer footing the bill, but if anyone wants Opel goodies from the club let me know and I will get them ordered.

    Hey, that's cool with me. I've got enough Opel shirts for a while. And since nobody is speaking up much about anything we shall call this a low budget meet.

    Re: Opel Club of Texas Octoberfest German Style

    George have you sent out the notices yet for the Octoberfest? I would like to keep this up on the front to get attendance up or at least get somebody's attention so that they will come.

    rk

    Cold Rammed Air is better than just a Cold Air Intake ask Otto he has seen it. The front nose on the Killer GT should be installed in time for the meet at least roughed in.

    No I haven't. Got my parents in town and am going to be busy with them. I will try to get something put together ASAP.
    What should I say for a time to start showing up? 11-12ish on Saturday?
