An Opel!?!? Where?

I have to relate this to y'all. My vacation last week was screwed over by Hurricane Dennis, in that I was going to spend a week basking in the sun on an island 5 miles out in the Gulf. Well, I had to switch plans and I took the wife and kids up to Gatlinburg, Pidgeon Forge, and Sieverville TN. The first night there in Gatlinburg we went to eat at one of the local joints, a place called Calhoun's. Known for their BBQ and ribs. We were seated by a real nice gal who happened to notice my Opel hat I had on. She looked excited and asked if I indeed had an Opel, I said yes, several in fact. She asked how did I get them in this country? I was taken aback, but replied that they were available through dealership that no longer carry them. She was astonished. She explained that she had just gotten back from South Africa for doing a "exchange student" semester for college and she had seen Opels all over the place and that me walking in with an Opel hat had surprized her that there was any in the US. I explained to her about the various models and what we got imported and she was surprized and amazed at what was actually here.
