well thought you guys would like this one,,,on friday i was at work and thinking all day of how my project gts were going to come along,,,if you have seen my 70 gt in the members pics you would know what i was thinking about,,,well was going to buy a good bodied car,,,or dump the whole opel "thing" ,,but i told my self to wait for a sign,,,i got home from work and an opel t-shirt that i ordered monthes ago showed up???? well, today i desided to wear it,,,i was out working on my bug and the old man from across the way came over and we started talking,,,he asked if i was into opel gts,,i said,"yep" he said, i worked on gts for about 15 years,,,he thought that every one forgot about those cool little cars,,,,then he said, i got 3 gts in my garage you want them,,,so i went for a look,,,,asked how much for them and he said,if you help me clean out the garage and get red of the junk you can have them,,,,how cool is that!!!! one has a sunroof and a hood scoop and is"souped up" the other is in virgin bliss,,the other is for parts "crap" ,,like the gt i have,,,,so it looks like i have been sucked into the "blitz",,,, and going to be a lifetime opeler after all,,,i will post pics when we go to clean it out,,,,,:D

that is why i also brought up the idea,,,that opel gt.com stickers for the cars is a good idea,,,"not to put stickers all over our cool vintage cars but for our race cars and the wifes honda"

LOVIN IT!

You got to love it!!! I would say that is about the best sign you can get. You have fun with all those Opels Raven and if you happen to have some good crome you might want to sell give me a holler. I could use some for the quarter windows. :D

And I thought I was lucky

And I thought I was lucky. I had a similair experiance... I was wondering thru classified ads on OMC's msg board and found a plea for help. I answered and the woman that needed help said I could have the GT if I came down to pick it up.

I had a U-Haul dolly set up the next day!

It was covered in moss and dirt...I took it home to wash and discovered it had new paint! (7 years ago) it also started after I dropped a new starter into it.

The picture I have uploaded under "notavette" is THAT GT. (minus the wheels and flares) I've done nothing to the paint. That's how it looked after I washed it. It will be black when I'm done.

I hope all 3 are cherries for ya man!

-Kyle
"notavette" <----- pet peeve is "it's a mini vette", "poor man's vette" etc etc...The Vette is the one that looks like the Opel!!!
