Gary, Thanks for posting link to great pics. I even recognized some of the Opels !

Equally appreciated is being reminded of the Classic Opel File Library, I bookmarked it this time.
I read 'Understanding DIN Wiring Diagrams' , Any wiring diagram makes my head spin but this should help.
The 1969 Opel GT & Kadett FSM has only a small black & white wiring diagram just enough different in some
details from later GT years FSM colored pages to make it confusing, at least to me.
The codes for wire color and connections in this library will be helpful if anyone is searching for electrical gremlins.

Pretty sure I just went to opel heaven not sure I want to come back to earth:no:
You need to see the Video Norbert posted a couple of weeks ago. They weren't like our meets at all. They had at least 250 to 300 cars there. A lot of long, long, tables with silverware and Glasses. High Class, where we had to stand in line for Bojangles, Sheeech, Jarrell

That picture looks like a Spring Show. For them you need walking shoes, if you're so inclined. Charlotte is the Place to go for shows and exposure. The best is to stay all 3 Days in Charlotte. Me I'd rather jet in and out for the Day. I'm only 1 1/2 hours from Charlotte, a Getrag transmission will make the drive pleasurable, rather than a mad dash.:yup: Jarrell

Why is it when we look at Opel pictures, its like looking at an Opel for the first time. We get excited and all warm inside :yup:
I don't know if this occurs with others, but I can just keep looking at Opel pictures and pondering what my Opel could look like :yup:
Thanks for pictures Gary :veryhappy

Nice photos. Someone has the knack.

I DO like the red GT with the side-pipes.

I'm hoping a write-up on this event will be coning to The Blitz soon. It was certainly a milestone for Opel events.

Mike it was a Trip for sure. Roy could write up something for the Blitz I'm sure to give the backstory. I just showed up for the Fun and Adventure. :lmao: and it really was a trip. I belong to the Brown Gt, or vice versa. Jarrell

I have photos of the cars in the Pavillion with a description of them. I would need to get in touch with Roy and see if he has a copy of who got what in terms of awards. Let me know if I can be of any help.
