How about this Saturday at Zephyrhills!

I found a bunch of old phone numbers of local Tampa Bay Opel people today!:D
I will contact them.
Going to leave work early, gotta wash my GT.

Good Morning!:D
Perfect day for an Opel meet.
It's a nice cool 50 degrees, with a high of about 75 and sunny.
Have my GT cleaned and oiled up for the big trip to Zephyrhills.
I will be bring a few tools and parts just in case.

Taking all back roads for fun, my girl friend is going as co-pilot so I shouldn't get lost.
:ugh:She is a little worried about meeting a bunch of Opel car-nut guys, but I told her your good people....... a little weird........a little different...............

Remember to bring your camera, lots of cool cars to see.
Lyle
Oh, I oiled up my rotating headlights, so I can dazzle the crowd.

Zephyrhills was fun, met a new Opel person.
No Opel stuff for sale at the swap meet, but some cool cars in the show.
I again was the best & worst Opel at the show....3 years now!
My GT got a lot of interest, they are still very rare around here!
Fun time, but so much to do, there is no time to talk Opel's.

I think the next meet will be at a park or someones house.
That way, nothing to do but talk about Opel's.
Any ideas?

I would be up for a FL/GA line meet, if we could get a few other local guys to go.

Maybe Florida Opel owners are too busy driving their cars......or working on them?
Most of our people are located around the Atlanta area.
Most of your members are in south Fla.
How about Daytona for a middle of winter meet?
second thought how about green cove springs?

I'm saddened that I missed it. Ray got some pictures for me early Sat. The Fiero with the blown Chevy BB looked incredible! I liked the Trans Am convertible too.

How about Middleburg? Last time I was through GCS, US17 was torn up from the theatre to the courthouse.
btw, the glass is neither half empty or half full, but twice the capacity necessary...

I don't have any.
Email Jonzo in Tampa he might have something.
Look back on page 3 of this thread for his info.

Also look under Opel wheels for something that might fit and bolt hole pattern.

Hi Cody, glad to hear we have another Opel owner in our area.
I'm in Clearwater about 2-1/2 hours South of you.
I have gone camping in Chiefland, nice area and cool spring fed lakes.

How about getting our Opel's together?
Cody had an event he mentioned, I missed his post.
Doesn't have to be a big event, meet at a park, somebody's house.....
The weather is getting perfect for an outside meet!
Any ideas?
Will PM a few folks, not everyone logs on enough to see this thread.

Lyle,

Would be GREAT!! Maybe lunch on a Saturday or Sunday? We could actually rotate the location in the area. Also, I lost your email. I have the form you gave me last year, need to send to you, PM if you still want it.
