Since there seems to be more 'activity' in the St. Louis area of late, I figured I'd start a thread for a roll call of who is out there within say 50 to 100 miles.
The people I know of:
Myself (that one was easy...)
Calvin (hotrod Manta)
Al (red GT)
Bruce (red GT)
Jason (I'm not sure, but Bruce says it's a GT)
Gerard (Green GT. Not sure of the spelling. Met him at Route 66, he knows Jason.)
Joe (brown GT)
Speak up, chime in, mouth off, etc., if you have or want an Opel and would like to get involved in some unorganized activities/get togethers/wrestle royales.
There are some Opels floating around that may still be in the area or haven't moved in forever.
-early Manta (yellow). Last known to be in North County about ten years ago. Rumored to have made it to South County.
-68-69 Kadett Rally (green) North County Older couple had it and sold it about ten years ago. 1.5 if I recall right.
-Charles Gottschalk (two GTs white and yellow, I think, at least one was a 1.1) 1900-2000 block of Victor. Cars moved about ten years ago.
-black GT. red interior. Clayton area as of '99-'00.
-Pearlescent white GT. Crestwood area. May be accompanied by a primer black one with gold BWA wheels. Haven't seen either car since I sold the white one back in '98-'99.
-Rick Yount. Green GT. Soutside, Hampton and Gravois area.
-Green GT. Spotted 5-6 years ago on a Sunday sitting outside a shop at Southwest and Hampton. May have been Rick Younts car.
-Green 1.1 GT. Mid-Rivers. First spotted back in 88-89. Still sitting next to the engine shop in mid 90's.
-Green GT. Butler Hill Rd. east of 21. Early 90's. Rough, but ran.
-Red GT. Fairview Heights back in 92-ish. Red with yellow splatter paint triangular graphic on side.
-Blue GT. Green Park and 21/tesson Ferry. Late 90's. Sat in front of the house right there on the corner.
-Ascona/1900 sedan. In the weeds and brush next to a barn on MM. Still there, I think. A visit is planned once the vegetation dies back.
-6 GTS in East St. Louis. Al has more info. Doesn't sound like the guy really wants to sell.
-Blue GT. Southside. Early 2000's. Saw it at Mark's Automotive on Kingshighway. Brought in found brake work. Nice car.
-Silver Ascona/1900 wagon. Early 2000's. Right across the street from Mark's Automotive at a recently opened car dealer. No signs, no price. disappeared almost immediately.
-Orange Manta Rally. Calvin's ex-parts car. Gave it to me, I gave it to Daniel. Saw Daniel last year, but have not heard or seen of him or the car since.
-Blue GT. Al's first GT. Popped up on Ebay a couple weeks ago. Imperial area.
-Red/orange Opel Isuzu. Keep seeing it on 40 headed west around Forest Park. Older guy drives it. Webster/Kirkwood, maybe?
