    OU rant. Post success stories or epic fails here. Only purchases after 12/3/13

    Ive been gone for a week, and i come back to just shake my head at you knuckleheads. I love talking smack but you guys need to give it a rest.

    Quit trying to think of new and clever ways to belittle OU!!!! thought flaming was not allowed here? eWe all can see Todd is rejuvenated and trying much harder! I have never called or ordered from them. I come from the mind set Im glad someone hoarded them and is willing to sell stuff. if it wasn't for him they would be recycled into a Justin Bieber lunchbox by now.

    In my 2 years of Opeling I have learned all you guys are some of the nicest on earth, don't talk smack etc. Only thing more annoying than a George or Jimmy thread is you guys bashing OU every chance you get.

    He is being transparent, offering help like no other, and trying to turn a new leaf. him being on here lends a new level of accountability.

    But Todd, here is your chance to earn a whole lot of customers. dont fudge it up. if you do, you might as well start hoarding Hyundais.

    So perhaps, get the next couple orders out lickity split and build off the newfound success.

    I just ordered a used center console from them last night. It's kind of nice to call at 10:00 p.m. and have someone answer the phone, haha.

    I appreciate what you are trying to do. I just have a mindset that has served me well over the course of my life.

    You can spray paint a leopard but their spots never really change.

    How about you place a few orders for some "good" used parts and get back to us.

    very clever. just when you thought the treasure trove of burns was all used up. Now 13thopel2013 i respect you a great deal, whatever your real name is. Ill call you Larry. the OU warnings are written in stone. Opelers in 2040 will see all the rants. I believe in giving people a chance, especially ones that have a "plethora of used cars."

    lets give him some incentive, and this thread can be his either calling card or pink slip. Ill gladly order some stuff but i have 3 GTS and even started a thread to give away my parts, cuz i have too many.

    all i need is a getrag, and the fixings. done, finito, adios

    All I need is a getrag as well. OK, maybe two of them. I got all the used parts I need.

    Someone said something to me once when I was saying I was going to the wrecking yard to get "parts". They said "Why? You already HAVE a used one". I spend less time at the wrecking yard these days. Of course if I needed a body panel (as I likely will in the Spring), I won't have much of a choice but to buy used.

    Funny thing with buying Opel GTs and parts cars. You end up with a carpload of parts that nobody needs. Need a "good" used alternator? I think I have a couple extras. Starters too. Etc, ad nauseum.

    We appreciate the vote of confidence and any encouraging words from our fellow Opel Nuts out there. You are correct in us being out here on a regular basis. It does give us a new level of accountability and even more a new level of direct communication with our customer base we have all known and loved for the last 30 years.

    LOL.. after my trip from IL.. I don't trust good used alternators anymore.. the two that passed failed, and the others in my collection o'pel crap failed.

    But they are worth almost $4 a piece for the metal

    But I digress..

    Anyway, I think I am the only person in the Opel community than can call Todd AND AnonymousD good friends.

    Both have their quirks, Both can be HIGHLY irritating, both taking a bit of getting used to, and to understand them both requires a certain level of patience and even then its highly doubtful anyone can fully understand either of them.

    That said, they couldn't be more diametrically different people..

    Opels Unlimited is known for it's sheet metal and body panels. We encourage you to call us when you are ready at 909-355-OPEL(6735), we literally have hundreds of pre-cut sheet metal parts. As most of you East Coasters can attest to out there most of your floors, rockers, fender chunks, even whole cars came from Opels Unlimited over the past 31 years.

    If the 45 Amp alternator fit a 1975 Opel, it will definitely fit a GT.

    I have the different style 13050 alternator in my GT.

    So, if I'm reading this correctly, OU sells "65 amp" alternators that are really 45 amp?

    Or do they sell rebuilt 45 amp alternators with mercedes guts?
