interesting?

I always look over Ebay, under "Opel" and when an ad about a complete car pops up, I usually don't give it a look unless it's a real nice GT/Manta/Ascona/Kadett. Well this one I just about passed over, till I happen to see the pic of the engine compartment. See if this doesn't grab your attention.

This seller also has a nice set of seats too, has a neat Blitz emblem embroidered at the top.

Very interesting indeed Gene. Wonder what's in the motor to back them up? Nice seats too. Not too far from you either. Don't you need another one? :D Jarrell

It's just another "project" that's not going to get done, and someone needs to clear out their garage/shop.

I will give him a call and see if I can see the car. Cummings is straight up 400 from were I work (sorta on the way home) ;). If anybody here wants a second option on the car I will give an opinion on it.

If you want to bid, I am sure you could make arrangements for someone down here to make the arrangements to ship it north..

I guess this person wasn't worried about heat. The heater line goes from the waterpump to the thermostat :confused: I guess with the carb setup, the lines had to be disconnected.

I's a trip computer. I used to have one in my D-50. It gives you all the info you need about your trip, as well as a cruise control.

Did you notice the gaskets on the glass? Lenses look real good. Wonder how that glass is under the grime. And the engine ... . Arrrgh. Like we can handle another one when Dan is thinking about one down the road. Sigh.
