    Weekend Wrap Up Sunday January 20, 2019

    Weekend Wrap-Up Sunday January 20, 2019

    We would like to announce that we have come to an agreement with a local established auto shop in Riverside to handle repairs on our customer cars.

    Mike of M and N Muffler has run his own shop for years and loves working on these little Opels. With Dice passing and Mike Birdsell moving to Oregon we have been in a rough place to take care of our customers cars labor needs but now we have an option for people.

    As he is just around the corner from our shop we can hand deliver all the customer parts easily with no delivery charge to the customer. We have actually been working with Mike now for about a year with great success. We have been using him for exhaust work and lift work for about six years.

    He has even serviced our own vehicles in a pinch when we have needed him. We have been happy to pay his labor rates as they are quite reasonable. He has a reliable staff and current machines for fine tuning on our cars. Also with a couple of big four post lifts he has done lots of brakes and brake lines, exhaust, and torque tube rubber on Opels. He has gotten to know them very well.

    As we said before, he loves having them around his shop. All the interest brings him walk in customers and he likes our story.

    We hope you are all enjoying the Celebration Sale announced two weeks ago. It has been nice to hear from those of you who are preparing to work on your projects this Spring.

    Todd wanted to thank all of you for his Birthday wishes. He heard from friends and fans from all over the world.

    Have a great week. Take Care and Happy Opeling.

    Special Announcement Tuesday February 5, 2019

    Special Announcement Tuesday, February 5, 2019

    Well we are West Coast Hardcore Rams fans so we need to start with a big Boo-Hoo for the Super Bowl. We had a party and everything and were we ever disappointed. We keep saying there is next year. And so it goes.

    We did a bunch of shipping this week and welcomed a new Manta customer who is doing a full restoration with our assistance. That is always exciting.

    We managed to time the pick up of a great little red GT going to Michigan around the rain we had all last week. The one dry afternoon a huge covered enclosed transport pulled iup and loaded our GT alongside a $60,000 Testarosa headed in the same direction. How cool it was to see those two red beauties side by side. We specially very carefully packed a windshield inside the GT to save him shipping to Michigan.

    It's raining again this week but we are managing to keep busy. "We were busy right through the Holidays and it has continued in to the new year. We didn't have any kind of a break.

    We are going to come up with a new Valentines sale this weekend so keep posted. In the meantime we have all kinds of key chains,models and books, even a ;polished valve cover at the Museum. Surprise your sweetie for Valentines. We can send pictures to your phone or email.

    Take Care and Happy Opeling.

    Weekend Wrap Up Saturday March 23, 2019

    Weekend Wrap Up Saturday March 23, 2019

    Spring has sprung this week and our weather has really shown it. With the rain we have had our acreage has never been so lush. Todd was so inspired that he broke out his riding lawn tractor and has been working on the front acre for 2 days. He has been having a blast and the property looks great. Todd had so much fun he made sure that Debbie and Tammy got to ride the lawn tractor too.

    The area Todd worked on is where the non-Opel cars park for the meet. It is going to be in great shape.

    We are down to 2 months and 1 week before the International Opel Festival and Picnic on Saturday June 8th. We really need to hear your RSVP so that we can plan on how much catered food to have. Call us at 909-355-OPEL (6735).

    There is a nice Hotel in the area that is close for the Show. The Red Lion Inn in Perris. They can be reached at 951-943-5577.

    Every week we work on the Festival. It is our top priority. It is going to be a great day. Again please make your plans and RSVP. We are sick of being cooped up from the Winter and are looking for the great weather we are going to have for the Festival. Come Join Us!

    Special Announcement Tuesday April 2, 2019

    Special Announcement Tuesday April 2, 2019

    Lot's going on in the Opels Unlimited Realm this week. Over 150 items shipped. between the Post Office, UPS Shipments and even a brand new Air Conditioning System shipped out on a huge pallet.

    We also rescued a GT from another shop and brought it in to coordinate work with Mike our current official labor restoration shop. This is definitely a rescue and we are happy to help out this GT's owner. She is a very nice gal and plans on going to the International Opel Festival and Picnic Saturday June 8th.

    We received some more RSVP's this week. If you are planning on coming give us a call at 909-355-OPEL(673) so that we know how much catered food to order.

    We are very proud to announce that we have a beautiful new stainless header available now with a super high quality of workmanship. The flange against the head is very thick and the flange on the bottom is angled properly so as to not drag the bottom bolt. A nicely engineered piece comes with the option avaialble for either a stainless steel or standard steel collector, your choice.

    Exhaust Tubing size is 2 inch diameter. This is the best most sought after combination over the years. Fits and lines up easily with our complete stainless 2 inch exhaust system and about every other exhaust you may have. This header fits both the OPEL GT and KADETT B models.

    This nice performance product will fit all the 1900 models as well as 2.0, 2.2 and 2.4 engines.

    Another great feature about running a header is that it separates the intake and exhaust and essentially allows the entire engine compartment to run at a cooler temperature. This really removes the heat from the bottom of the carb which has been a problem all these years during the Summer and in the warmer states.

    We are making this available at a great price of just $249.95.

    We are also going to offer a few different performance intake manifolds soon.

    People always ask us if we have engine kits so we have put together some complete upgraded engine kits. We will have one section for the head with performance Cam Shaft and special Valves. Next we will offer a complete bottom end upgrade kit with all the bearings, gasket stuff and super big pistons and timing components as well. Gives us all something to look forward too. Everything will be on display at the International Opel Festival and Picnic Saturday June 8th.

    Anybody out there with a Kadett Wagon? We now have Carpet Kits. Available in black and also for manual or automatic. Complete kit is $369.95.

    Headlight wiring harness is still available for 69-70 GT. Comes with all other wires in the loom and everything is tagged very professionally done. Current Sale is still $199.95.

    Continue to enjoy your Spring, it is certainly happening here with 10,000 flowers. We will show you more Festival prep pictures in next weeks wrap up.

    Take Care and Happy Opeling.

    International Opel Festival and Picnic Wrap Up Monday April 22, 2019

    Great week here at Opels Unlimited. Had the opportunity to sell one of our prized GT's, a red 69 single owner. The new owner is super enthusiastic and is coming to our Picnic. He has already bought a new set of cool rims and is preparing a list of parts needed to restore the car to his specifications.We are really looking forward to being a part of his project.

    Starting at noon and wrapping up around 5 or 6 pm, we are talking about a whole day that is all Opel. Lunch will be catered by Casa Jimenez at 12 sharp. We encourage everyone to bring something for the Pot Luck so we will have plenty of variety for everyone. We usually have famous dishes each year like Ben's Corn Bread and Melody's Hot Chocolate Lava Cake.

    The entire day will be taken care of by Matt the DJ with music and commentary. We will have our Car Show and a Raffle. Everyone attending receives a free Opels Unlimited Raffle Ticket. Tammy will be in attendance with her famous Sales Display and we also should have our Hillbilly Dyno display running again soon.

    There will be plenty of shaded seating for everyone and last year we even had people in the Pool at the Manor. So why not bring your suits and towels. Bring the kids, so many people of all ages attend each year.

    Weekend Wrap Up Sunday April 28, 2019

    Weekend Wrap up Sunday April 28, 2019


    Our focus this week was on shipping, preparing for the International Opel Festival and Picnic Saturday June 8th and taking care of our newest GT Owner as he prepares to restore his car. Michael has an aggressive build schedule and plans to have his GT done by the Picnic on June 8th.

    Michael actually came to the Manor to pick up some parts and it was so fun showing him all around and telling him where the DJ, food, display, Hillbilly Dyno and seating for the event was going to be. He was very enthusiastic and is an ideal GT owner and will contribute greatly to the event we are sure.

    We also heard from Mike and Laura Birdsell in Oregon and they are making plan with their family to come be with us for the Picnic. This is great news as we have missed them terribly since they moved last Winter.

    The President of the Opel Enthusiast Club, Johnny Roberson and his wife Lela will also be at the Picnic on June 8th. We are asking all our Opel fans to tell their friends about the Picnic as the OMC Magazine did not publish our event this year. Saturday June 8th starting at Noon.

    The RSVP's are coming in and we encourage anyone who is coming to call 562-690-1051 so that we know how much food to cater for everyone.

    Our upcoming week includes more shipping and continuing to work with Michael on his GT build. Have a great week everyone, enjoy the warm Spring weather. Take Care and Happy Opeling.

    Special Announcement Tuesday May 7, 2019

    Special Announcement Tuesday May 7, 2019

    Hi folks. It's been a while since we have put out a new parts sale so we thought we would give you something new and exciting this time. We are often asked if we have premade engine rebuild and upgrade kits. So, we decided to make a premade package deal engine upgrade kit with some of our best sellers.

    People like to upgrade their engines to the factory specifications of the 2000 cc featured in the later model German cars. Anybody with the 1900 can do this if you punch your block .080 oversize you can accomodate the standard sized 2000 cc piston. It has been one of the most common upgrades in the past twenty years.

    This is a tremendous upgrade especially for anyone with a 1971 and newer Opel motor with only the 7.6 to 1 compression ratio. The flat top piston alone give at least a 9.0 compression ratio. With the head milled it can even add a bit more. Also benefits from premium gas. It really adds a noticeable power improvement.

    High quality bearing sets come in the kit as well. Bearing sets are all in stock and come in standard, and .010, .020, .030 and .040. All your choice. Can even be sent separately when your machinist knows what size you are going for. Bearing sets are usually heavy duty sets like German Glycos or TRW and Vandervell. Well known for their strength especially in power building conditions.

    Next, the Head Gasket has to be larger as well. The 1900 Head Gasket will not do here anymore. We have a popular steel reinforced siamese sleeve Head Gasket for this 2000 cc motor. Your choice here as well. We also stock the original Opel 2.0 E Head Gasket from Germany. Same price in the same deal.

    Also featuring the best ring set in the world. Hastings is the bomb. Known throughout all America as the best precision fit ring set that seats all the time. Complete matching ring set comes with the set of 4 piston wrist pins as well.

    So to review, in this package deal you get Pistons and high end Ring Set, Piston Pins, Head Gasket, Rod Bearings and Main Bearings. All for $699.95.

    Of course we have to talk about the International Opel Festival and Picnic. We had a few more people RSVP this week. Even Arnold said he would be there and bring his really radical Kadett C. (like 200 horsepower).

    Also we are all set to pull Manny Wong's famous concept car from the museum to be a part of the show. It will be FOR SALE for $18,900. For those of you not familiar with the car it features a Targa top with 4 wheel disk brakes, an injected 2400 cc motor with a 5 speed.

    Next week we will feature another special engine upgrade sale. Featuring all the top end, big upgrades for heads and valve trains.

    Until next time Take Care and Happy Opeling.

    Special Announcement Monday May 13, 2019

    Special Announcement Monday May 13, 2019

    Focus for us this week was continued preparation for the International Opel Festival and Picnic Saturday June 8th here in Perris at 20610 Eureka Street, Perris 92571.

    We moved one of our favorite projects to the Manor so we could work on it to have it ready for the Festival. The White GT is very close to being finished and it's owner assures us he will be at the event.

    More people RSVP'd this week and we continue to call folks and extend personal invitations to attend the Picnic.

    Spoke to Jerry out in Rosamond and he thinks he may bring his Motorhome and Trailer the day before with his special V-8 GT with a blower. You should see and hear this car, it is amazing.

    Todd is embarking on another new project. We have a parts car and we are saving the wood board in the back and intend to measure the board and make a prototype to make some boards to sell. There just arenlt any good used boards to be had so we have added this to our inventory.

    This same parts car has yielded a great A/C system in really good condition. Our buddy Zack has been a real help to Todd with this car.

    Next, we have found a rearend for a good valued customer. We went through the rear and front end pile and found a great candidate. We put together a pallet and got a quote for shipping.

    Finally, we checked out a 4 speed tranny for a good customer and it is going to be a perfect fit. Horst says he will bring 2 cars from Arizona and pick up the tranny at the Festival. Other people are picking up windshields, a Manta Hood and other large items, it's a common practice at the festival to save on shipping.

    We also got out 4 packages that were rush orders for our customers. People are working on their cars throughout the country. Getting ready for car shows and the rest of the Season.

    Happy Belated Mother's Day and Take Care and Happy Opeling.

    Special Announcement Monday May 20, 2019

    Special Announcement Monday May 20, 2019

    It's all about the Festival. All the prep at the Manor. Moving and getting the Opels ready for the Concourse. Awards are being created. The Display is being brought together and every dfay we are getting more RSVP's. We had 8 this week alone and that brings us to nearly 50 so far. We are one week away from ordering the catered food so be sure yo call and RSVP. 909-355-OPEL(6735) We have people coming from Oregon and Washington State, New Mexico and Arizona and even one from West Virginia. It's going to be a real contest to see who wins the Longest Distance Traveled Award this year. Each year it is usually someone who has come over 1,000 plus miles.

    We have a lot more to do and just yesterday Todd sustained a major injury that is going to make it almost impossible to complete his tasks by himself. He fell on a glass and needed to have 17 stivches between the top of his leg and bottom of his tush.

    We are putting out the S.O.S. to have help over the next two weeks before the June 8th event. Any help would be appreciated. Give Todd a call on his cell and he'll give you the details. 562-690-1051.

    Todd was supposed to collect about a dozen cars and set them up with tires and batteries and such and make sure they are running for the show,. There is also the setting up of tents and bringing Manny Wong's concept car from the museum to the Manor. It is so bad Todd annot drive, or even get in customer cars to work on them. That was all he was going to do for the next two weeks.

    We really need the help.

    Two of our German partners have let us know they are coming through with a whole bunch of neat items and they should be here in time for the International Opel Festival and Picnic on Saturday June 8th. for Tammy's famous Sales Display.

    As for the Display, this is where we deeply discount everything. These are our best rock bottom prices. People who come to the event are in the perfect position to really cash in on the Savings and save on shipping. As Tammy likes to say "Bring your plastic."

    Great news on other fronts. It is so great to have Opel enthusiasts who become great friends who contribute and really help out. We are so happy to announce that Donna's famous theme baskets and raffle tickets will be completed and available for all of us to have a really great time with. The great thing she did last year was you get to put your tickets directly in fromt of the baskets you really want. Your chances of winning the exact price that you crave is really good. This way you don't win a prize you didn't really want,

    Donna we have to thank you so much for spending your time and energy in such a positive way for everyone. We love and appreciate you.

    On other good news our head T-Shirt guy is making up lots of new shirts in great colors for the medium, large and Xlarge people this year. They seem to run out each year so this time we set up a big order and all sizes should be available at the Festival.

    Also there will be custom event stickers and T-Shirts available for everyone. Special thanks to Veronica for pulling this together for us even from out of state, you rock.

    Take Care and Happy Opeling.
