The last one I saw sold was in Raleigh N.C. in 1974. I believe it was the last year it was imported into the US. I was reputed to do 150 off the showroom floor or it was a lemon. Coincidentally, at last Falls Auto Fair, (Charlotte) there was a white one from the same dealership in Raleigh where I saw my first one. Price was 32,000 and it was in poor shape. In 1974 the price was 10,000. Jarrell

Richard,

Beautiful looking GT. How often do you go to CC? I've only gone once and am dying to go again.

Enjoy your GT,

Manny

Yes you were Richard, and good seeing you again. Bummer there were only 4 Opels there yesterday. Not too good for all the ones here in SoCal. I noticed on the Vintage Car Show website they closed the entries a week before the show. They only allowed 350 cars to be entered. The one car that brought back a lot of memories and desires, was the MB 300 SL gull wing. I heard the owner refused a $500,000 offer to buy it on the spot. As folks were leaving the grounds, it was comical to watch some folks push start one of the real oldies there when the hand crank wouldn't spin the engine fast enough to get it started. It was quite a parade as all the cars were leaving the show grounds.
