Jot5555. Could you let me know when you get the bucket of keys. I live in Salem also and I have a couple of door handles I would like to check. Thanks to OGTS I have the key blanks to be cut. I also have a few more keys to add to the bucket.

I'm not entirely sure how this started, but I presume these are keys that people had from Opels they no longer own? I was wondering if we could get Opelers to cut a couple extra keys for the vehicles they currently have, to add to the collection? We could make it anonymous enough that nobody could easily find the key that matches your car...just labeled as year-model-lock (i.e 1970 GT gas cap). Earlier this summer we had someone lock their keys in a GT, and remarkably, the first set of keys from another GT he tried opened the door lock! "Good Karma/Carma?":cool:

That's a cool idea, but, I was just making it easy, in that, instead of throwing away old Ople keys, just donate them. If you want to start the ball rolling on your idea, you can send keys directly to me and I'll drop them in the can when it arrives back in GA.

OK Gene,
I ordered a couple blanks from these guys.
I have a friend that can grind them for me, so I should be able to contribute to the bucket. I will PM you for an address when they are ready.
Cheers, and Happy New Year!

The car can easily be 'hot wired' but you'll need to be concerned with the steering column lock. I've seen them mysteriously start working when least expected so if you plan to drive it you'll need to figure a way to disable it.

As Keith W. mentioned you can contact Opelspyder aka. Keith Lundholm about getting keys cut from the key code found in the door. With that being said Keith will be 'out of pocket' for a few days (Grandmother recently passed away in Maryland). He does check his email from his smartphone and I'm sure he'll carry his laptop with him.

This looks like a good place to ask about the can of keys.

What are the possibilities of getting the can out this way so I can find a gas cap key?

Thanks.

Bucket of keys

Twisted Stripe here. I haven't heard anything from JOTT5555 about the keys. He only lives about 5 miles from me here, so I'll go over to his house to see if I can find out what's going on. I also want to check on his BMW IRS conversion is going.

Oh, if he has the keys, down in Salem, I can drive down there and pick them up.
That way I could find a key and then send the can off to it's next destination really quick.

Twisted Stripe & First Opel 1981:
If you two could co-ordinate your efforts and get your chance with the "Can of Keys" from JOTT5555, then please ship it onto "Opelnut 1" I would appreciate it.

I will do what I can. I presume this is so the can can get to Carlisle?

Bucket of keys found

I retrieved the bucket of keys from Jott5555 last night. I really didn't need them. I just wanted to add some keys to the collection. If I can get an address I'll get them in the mail tomorrow.

I think First Opel 1981 has the next go with the can, and from what I understand, he's nearby?
