    I thought of joining about a week ago, but i'm not that big a fan of Opel, i just like a couple of old models, and you seem to be big fanatics.

    Sven, In what part of Croatia are you? I remember reading "Auto Klub" magazine a few years ago about a perfectly restored Manta in Zagreb. Is that you by any chance? How many GTs do you know about in Croatia? I know of a white one in Rijeka, 1 in Krk, a red targa that use to be in Zagreb and supposedely in the Osijek area there is an owner with 3 of them..one or 2 being parts cars. I also know of 2 GTs in Bosnia..both red.

    I'm from zagreb, but it wasn't me in the magazine, my manta is pretty far from perfectly restored, that was Igor's orange manta 1.6 you saw in auto klub, i went to talk to him about parts... but thats the last i've seen of him or his manta. (abt. 1.5 years ago)

    I don't know of any GT's in croatia personally, but i am aware of a few that exsist, one of which is the white one in Rijeka... most of them are in the coastal towns, i've only seen a very bad one in zagreb, and that was ages ago... people are asking ridicilous amounts of money for pretty undecent gt's, they are way overvalued here.
    I personally don't really like GT's that much, i only keep track of mantas and commodore's

    Yet you have a GT in your Avatar......

    VERY interesting......

    This claimed dislike for GT's will have to be explored further! I think you may have a hidden LOVE for GT's that need to be discovered.

    the GT in my avatar is a 3d model i made of the car so i figured it'd be a cool avatar with the blinkers. It's not that I disslike the GT, I just don't see it as the most beautiful Opel, like most people do.

    its a z3d format, but its low polygon, as it was meant for a game, but never have time to finish it. i'm not home right now, but there should be some pics of it in my photo album here.

    Sven, We're better off not discussing tastes (especially opinions AGAINST GTs). As far as the Manta is concerned..you're right..it was an orange one. Was Igor helpful in locating parts for you?
    The white GT in Rijeka is Edi's. I know him personally and he's always ready to help with advice. He belongs to an oldtimer club in Rijeka.
    Interesting tidbit..one of the organizer's of the Bertone/Fiat x1/9 Croatian club admitted to me personally last summer that the only reason he bought a Bertone was because he couldn't find a descent Opel GT at a reasonable price. I "crashed" a x1/9 meet last summer with my GT. There were 45 "Bertones" there..but all the spectators and most of the attendees flocked to see my car!

    Anybody know if that site is still operational? I've just been catching up - haven't visited OpelGT.com in a while...

    I'm a first generation Canadian of Croatia decent. Most of my family is from the Goski Kotar region, with many of them moving to the coastal areas around Rijeka over the last couple of generations. My parents have a house in Trsat and are vacationing there now. Last report from my dad is that there was a very nice GT at an oldtimer event he went to last week in Smrecje. I don't know the year, but it was silver with black interior and had Karlovac license plates. He thinks the owner was a member of the Karlovacki Oltimer Klub.

    My dad is a big car nut himself, but his loyalties are spread widely across brands. He is currently restoring a '67 Cougar XR7, just finished a rotisserie restoration of a '60 NSU SportPrinz, next up is a '69 Peugeot 204 Cabrio, and finally his "prized" '73 Citroen SM. When he speaks to people in Croatia about these cars he's sensing more and more interest in these "Oldtimers". It wasn't long ago that a typical reaction was "ah, stari auto" ("ah, old car - in a derogatory sense). Then the cars became a curiosity, and now they are "cool". Prices are going up too. He's scouting out some candidates to add to his collection (Fiat 600, Peglica (Polish FIAT), and original Vespas).

    Senen.

    Yes it is still operational, and the adress is: OpelClub-Croatia
    however you are more likely to find information concernig older cars in croatia at my own forum located at OldschoolHR

    Its not my intention to advertise, but that realy is the place where all the croatian folks get together.

    its not Opel specific, but Opels are still in the majority. The silver GT with KA plates you saw was i think imported from Italy, a real GTj with all the european extras, former owner of that silver gt now has a perfect condition orange GT in Rijeka (imported from the states), he is a member here aswell i think.
