I want to thank Allen and Vickie for all the hospitality while sponsoring the NW Ohio Wester PA Opel meet. Everyone was very nice and helpful to me and my wife as I attempt to get up to speed enough on Opel GT's to make an educated decision on what I hope is my return as an Opel GT owner.

I learned a great deal from everyone and was surprised to find some really unusual and very nice cars other then Opels present as well with 2 very cool Motorcycles as a bonus! Good company, quality cars and near perfect werather, what more could we ask for. Thanks again Allen and Vickie, here are a few photos to give an idea of what the meet was like.

I got home a few hours ago, no problems at all. My round trip was about 725 miles.

Vickie and Allen, Thank you for hosting such a great event! It was awesome to see everybody. And I really enjoyed the trip to pick up Sam's new car.

Sam-- I'm not sure if it counts as towing when the car being 'towed' is inside the car doing the 'towing' :D

No pictures here...I'll have to look at everyone else's

EDIT: Oh! Almost forgot! On the way home I managed 27.79 mpgs, which is my highest ever. Ohio has some good gas!
