Way back in the mid-80's when I left MB for greener pastures out west, and took my Opel GT with me, we had a group of about 6 Opel GT owners in Winnipeg.
Since then, the only one I know who was still an owner until a few years ago was Richard Buhler in North Kildonan. Richard had helped clean out the garages of an octogenarian Opel hoarder who had twelve (12!) Opels. He had GT's, Manta's, Kadett's, even a Rekord. Richard ended up with four or five of the GT's, sold a few, junked a couple, and restored one to a very high result.
Richard sold that in 2017, and I bought his entire parts hoard (see the trend) and brought it all to Calgary.
I'll ask Richard to "pop in" to read this thread and let you know if he keeps in touch with other Manitoba Opel'ers.

I had a phone call today from an ad on Kijiji that I responded to quite some time ago.
A fella out in Sherwood Park, about 15 minutes east of me has a 1972 Opel GT that he picked up for a song.
He is came over today to take a few bits and pcs off my parts car and I have encouraged him to get...
