This is great:)! Now.... about a date to get together....How about the second weekend in September? On that Saturday the 10th.

The folks at Flashback Motoworks mentioned to me when I talked to them that they have car get togethers at there place (inside faciality with a BBQ) and would love to see some Opels in the area. (the owner says he has not seen one in a very long time and thought they had all gone to the great rust pit in the sky).

It is just an idea to toss out see what you foks think.

Opels in Atlanta...oh yeah...

I will be at any function there might be. My 71' is in the shop right now awaiting parts to have the suspension all nice and tidy and working so I don't blow myself off of the road with my turbo'ed 2.3

On that note, any suggestions on good shocks to add? The Koni Reds are a little too much for me as I do not plan on adjusting them all of the time. The KYB's on OGTS look cool, but just thought I would throw it out there.

Just checked. It will be November 12 & 13. My wife has a conference in Atlanta that weekend and I'm tagging along.

Just got back from a similar weekend in Fort Lauderdale. (and all it's tax deductible) ;)

meetings

- September 10: sure, if I can get a trailer to haul my Kadett - now wait, I don't need a trailer anymore. I have a Manta now, and I can just sit in and drive it anywhere I want to... totally new feeling (thank's, Ken!!!).
- November 12th: BAZ, if you come over the big pond, we sure will organize a meeting for you. To remind everyone in the ATL area: my house, garage, driveway and porch is always available to hold a meeting. Plenty of space for 15+ Opels on concrete driveway, and some more on the lawn.

Gary, Baz, come on anytime! We'll get together who we can when we can. It's hard to know if you're going to be 'doing anything' that far in the future (for me at least) but the nice thing is that you can hold those times open with this much warning. Marking the calendar as we speak. :D
Hey Baz, if you need anything medically while you're here we'll descend on Emory here in Atlanta. One of the finest medical centers in the states. Of course, if we introduce you to all the local cuisine in large quantities you may just need stomach remedies. :p
Looking forward to it!

Don't want to get too far off topic here, but that's my family's stomping grounds (Macon, Perry, Dublin, Eastman - which you've probably never heard of...).
If you want to do any exploring while you're here I can take you down to Midville and that area and introduce you to a great little resturant off a pond filled with alligators, herons, snakes, etc. Great place to canoe and do some observing.
