I'm 40 and I've had 7 GT's 4 mantas and a wagon since 77 or so. Just remember it's not the age but the mileage that counts the most.

old opel car guy

Turn 29 in 2 weeks, had at least one Opel since I was legal to drive at 14 in SD. Have in the past owned 9 Mantas, 6 Kadetts, 4 Asconas, 4 GTs, and a solitary Vauxhall, which is sort-of close.

Currently I own 3 Kadetts and 1 GT, but I'm working on trying to own one more Kadett and a pair of Rekords.

I'm 45. In 1975, I learned to drive in a 69 Kadett wagon. The same year, I fell in love with the Manta and Ascona when they were $4000 a pop. Somehow my father couldn't see the wisdom in co-signing a loan for 4 grand when you could buy a base Pinto for $1995. Oh well. I've lost count of the MANY Opels I've owned through the years. Currently own six...four of which are roadworthy. The last two are parts cars for the goods ones. 2 Mantas, 1 Acsona, 3 Sportwagons. All but one Manta are 1975.

I'm 45, and I bought my first Opel GT when I was 19, in first year Engineering to replace a very impractical '61 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite. The second GT came as a parts car, but was upgraded to my wife's DD when I was 23. A Kadett wagon became my daily driver after I graduated at age 25 (long time to finish my degree, too many Opels!). The last Opel, the '75 Ascona SportWagon, came home just before this Christmas. And it and the original GT are enough Opels for now!

Hey Gary Farius, how do I make this thread an official "Poll". I moved it to the Poll heading, but I don't see how to set it up. I even tried to make a new poll, and merge this thread, but the new poll also evaded me. Help!!!

46.......I own a 73 GT for about 7mos now......previously owned a 73 manta (from 1976 till about 1982) and a 71 GT (from 1979 till about 1984). Thought I was over my Opelitis back then... but apparently not.
