Vurx,

I see you are a new member in Michigan. I don't know if anyone told you yet, but we have an Opelers group in Michigan. Our yahoo group is opelrsofmichigan. I know at least one Opel will be at the Classic Cars Blood drive on this weekend (June 7 - 8) in Grand Rapids, and there is a meet in Mason, Michigan (near Lansing) on June 28th, 2003.

Where are you going to school? I just finished my bachelors in Computer Science... and can't find a job... sigh (databases - 3-4 years exp)..

Good luck!

According to yahoogroups there are 22 members. The yahoogroup itself isn't very active - more to let people know when car shows are, parts exchanging, and if someone wants to do a mini-meet (other than our main Mason meet) (such as an Opel drive to Traverse City which some of us are thinking about - if it ever gets warm that is).

Some very nice people are part of the group! Would love to see both of you at the Mason meet! It isn't a car show (last year I took our 67 Camaro 'cuz I didn't have the Opel GT running - hopefully the GT will be running this year) just a get together at a park with food.

The meet is in Mason, Michigan - just south of Lansing. A pretty tame thing - your dad might enjoy it since most people who own opels are his generation - not ours. Be WONDERFUL to have you there - hate being the youngest (actually husband is tech. youngest by 6 weeks - but he looks older - and I look younger). The meet is in a little park with some small ponds and lots of shade. If you join the group ([email protected]) one of us can ask directions - one of the guys lives down the road (he hopefully has his made 2.4 and 5 speed in this year! Looked way cool even out of the GT last year!)

Bring parts if you have them - Mike always does (he is VERY nice - but this could be a biased opinion since he's helped me sooo much with my GT ;) (I hope you are reading this Mike =) )).

Hope to see you both there!

Heather

i couldnt fit nearly half of all my parts into my GT!!!, i think you (havel1hv) were one of the people coming out to get parts before too long, or is it somebody else? sounds like i have 3 weeks to get her back together and it probably wont happen unless i can get dad to take the ridge reamer and hone to my blocks and see if i have to bore one, and check for oversized bearings also so i can order my parts from northerautoparts. ALOT CHEAPER ENGINE PARTS THAN OGTS!!! they have rebuild kits for alot of cars and they are very cheap, especially for performance items.

Oh now I am crackin up

I checked out the picture link, and those are my pictures! Now how did I do that? You guys must have transfered them from somewhere, or maybe I HAVE been here before. Talk about deja vu all over again. Well, how do I add our pictures from this year then?

John.
You sent me the pics last summer. We had a different look then.

To upload photos: go to the gallery, go to the forum you want to post to, click on "Add Photo" at the top and away you go. Hey, there are enough MI Opelers now, I can set up your own club forum if you'd like.
