kansas city opelers

there are a bunch of us in missouri.. about 6-8 of us in the Kc area.
Many with a lot of experience with opels.There is no formal KC list as
we have no formal club..yet.We think we are going to have a missouri meeting in Kansas city in the spring.

names that come to mind on opelgt.com folows:

I am bucky,there is also houserc,dan101,and oldhippie.In Joplin I met tom king(wow...he could be our mentor)..there are others who I cant recall off the top of my head.

you can type in our names on the search feature to see our topics.

post your car and where you are at in the gallery.

there are many common problems...use the search feature...this helps people from repeating answers.Also..type in the name Kwilford....read everything he writes...you will know it all by then...Just my 2 cents...welcome

Welcome to the world of the German-Buick cars only the addicted (Opel-itis) love. I'm 'bout 90 miles west of KC. My GT just got pushed into the garage. Got to make new floor-pan pieces, weld some metal behind the tires, paint, install motor and interior. BUT I'm pushing for a summer run to meet all these people I've been typeing at. It's a good group.

count me in after Aug

I'll cruise on down to anything you guys get together near KC after I get back home to SD in August. I'll probably be in a Kadett, but I may have a couple of Opel surprises in store for that time frame as well.

mini kc meeting

just to let you all know.

through this web site tomking and I met briefly when he came thru KC on business.He read I was needing a rack and pinion ,so he brought one with him. He brought me a " rack and pinion" for Celeste. Since I was driving the opel, he took her for a spin. I said "tom, go ahead a rev it to 6 grand", we had fun.He filled me in about the good trip he had to Carlisle and all the friendly folks he had met.

He agreed that my " metal Opel labeled clone pedals from Brazil are slick and are not recomended."

He has scored some good parts on ebay and will be ready to drive one of his 2 opel gts up from Joplin to meet us at Sonic or wherever.He is having a Legere 2.4 built for him in Joplin ... He has roller rockers in hand too ,from samdog.

He liked my Destec LED lights. I liked the complete A/c he bought at carlisle and the Dual side drafts with Manifold that he scored at a bargain price on a "buy it now on ebay".

we visited as time would allow.I told him how much fun it was to drive my gt around kc, for instance .." I had a guy in a Rolls Royce waving at me yesterday."

the bottom line" we agreed that oplegt.com is a friendly group"

Hello all.

I live in KC and just joined the board. I do not own a GT yet but both my brother and me are in the market for a couple.

I plan to do a lot of reading of past posts in order to catch up on the information here.

Glad to see that there are a lot of KC area members.

Thanks,
FreightTrain

I met another Opeler yesterday. He just bought and repainted a GT and lives in Richmond, about 20 minutes from me. We had a good talk and traded some spare parts for some leftover body panels he had.
We will be getting together sometime soon and I'll post pics of the new one in the area.

we will have a mo gathering someday in the middle of the state like the Ozarks or something that way it is about equal diatance for everyone to drive.
