Welcome!

Folrian,

Welcome to the site. Lots of GTs here but a few Kadetts as well.

I have a 1972 GT but am trying to convince the present owner of a 1967 1/2 Kadette Rallye to sell it too me so I can be a Kadett owner too.

If you use the "Search" feature on the top blue line and ype "Kadett" into the box that appears then all the postings with the word Kadett in them will be listed.

Have fun! and Happy Opel Kadetting.

BTW: Had a look at the pictures of your Kadett and it is VERY nice :cool:

Totally sweet Kadett, Florian! I like the ATS wheels on it, too. Looks like a factory trailer hitch there.

European Kadetts

I would love to get a set of those tail light lenses for my own Kadett. I love the amber turn signals.

thank you!

i try to keep the car as original as i can. the paintjob is the first, and the vinyl roof looks like it was mounted yesterday :cool:
but both are over 30 years old... =)

it has original 51000 kilometers and drives sweeeeet....

but at the moment, with all the ice and salt on the street, it rest peacefully in my garage, till spring arrives...

so i got the time to fix some things, so i built in an original '71 grundig opel radio and an original grundig ac220 cassetteplayer:
interior

those chrome "lines" (??) on the middle of the doors and around are not original, i took them of last week, underneath there are original painted rallye stripes :D

CAN'T WAIT TILL SPRING ARRIVES!!!

oh, rigtht - you've got red lights over there, right? i'd love to own an american kadett with that different front...
i love that "olympia" front on normal kadetts, unfortunatly those were only built for the usa...

Willkommen!

Willkommen im Forum! Auf Deinen Kadett kann man nur neidisch sein! Wenn Du ihn jemals verkaufen willst, Du weist wo Du mich finden kannst... ;-)
Habe im Winter 89/90 mit der Restauration eines 1.9 F-Coupe's angefangen, damals noch in Deutschland. Bin seit 6 1/2 Jahren in USA und schraube immer noch dran rum...
