There are quite a few posts on this site about bringing a GT back after a prolonged period of nonuse. There is a fantastic search engine on this site that you can access on the tool bar at the top of the page. Just type a word or two on the subject and you will have a bunch of posts relating to that subject. Also, you can ask any question regarding the Opel and you can receive a multitude of responses from folks on this site that have, been there, done that. A word of warning though, that I must impart to you. Once you have an Opel, you may become afflicted with an illness known as Opelitis. This illness, which I have not been a victim of so far, places the household of an Opel owner a jeopardy of having Opels multiply, as if by magic at their residence.
