Hey Paul,
Looks like you are about 30 miles up rt 52 from here.
My '73 GT should be roadworthy by then, so I'm definitely interested in
joining you.
How about it? Any other Hoosier Opelers? :cool:

will do. rather than hydroplaing easily, i love the car. had HORRABLE storms here tonight, had to drive an hour and a half round trip and couldnt go over 53MPH on I 135 or it'd start to drift and get squirely, very scarry when you can't see very far infront of you cuz the rain makes a sheet of water on your windshield like a waterfall. one of those"only see it int he movies" kinda thing. even with all that water the ignition didnt short out, cap stayed dry and the carb didn't seem to act up with all the water, so i'm a believer in it after this and the last 3,000 miles.

An Opel GT Show!

Well, I am planning on bringing my '70 Opel GT to the car show in Colfax. Eventhough it could use a fresh coat of paint, I'll still bring it. It would be nice to have several Opels all gathered together. One does not often see Opels in car shows along with muscle cars and other antiques. Opel GT's almost always turn heads when driven down the road or street. It would also be nice to see some Mantas or Kadettes, if there are some in the local area. Lets hope for some decent weather; no rain and not so hot. My Opel (and I) prefers cooler weather!

New engine specs. 2.2, 10.5:1, big valve head and hot cam (adv. dur. 266 deg, .481 lift) with compufire ignition. Sould be finished in time, if I can determine the best exhaust.
