AH son of a biscuit eater,
I want a taste drive this can't be real
You can see this GT a lot at the annual "Cruising' The Coast" event at Gulfport, MS each fall. I saw it there once and it is as good as advertised or better! I saw it in motion too and it is a beauty.

I would like to add my two cents worth to someone starting from scratch to build a serious Opel GT race car. As many others on this site, I have been there and done that. Your objective has to be very clear.
1. How fast do you want to go.
2. How much can you afford to dump into the project.
3. Are you ready for such a long term commitment.
4. Do you have your spouses support to complete this project.

SPEED IS PROPORTIONAL TO MONEY. You are going to spend in excess of $75,000 to $100,000 before you are done. If you do it right, new tube chassis, new motor (not some junk LS out of a pickup truck), new transmission (price a Rossler glide or TH400), torque converter, complete after market cooling system, dry sump system, fuel system with ECU package, rear end, driveshaft, tires, turbos/prochargers/nitrous, brakes..................the list goes on and on and on. When you think you have reached the light at the end of the tunnel, someone turns off the switch.

I will be your strongest supporter if you go forward with this project. I right now am completely rebuilding my 1971 Opel GT and hope to have it ready my April. This has been seven years of dabbling while I campaigned my other tube chassis car. My goal is going from 7.52 @ 185 to 6.??? @ > 200. If you want help, ask. Call me at 740.381.4647 and we can chat about all of the hurdles you are going to face. Good luck.
