We met in June 2002, had 7 GTs there, in 2003 had 4GTs there with others. We met in Raynor Park in Mason (just south of Lansing). Couldn't get any interest after that. Jim

Actually, in 2003 you had 3 more people and 2 more cars, but we got there late and everyone had left!
I would love to try it again when the weather gets warm. Are we all on the Map thing? Maybe that would allow us to pick a good location. I know of at least 3 of us that are close by in the NE Detroit suburbs.

Actually, the place in Mason was pretty good. anywhere near Lansing is pretty central. If the group in the UP wants to come down, we could move it towards Mt. Pleasant.

i always thought frankenmuth would be a good show to make a opel meet out of, usually in may, frankemuth michigan. if i'm not mistaken, its pretty central to the state. i'd think best bet is to find out what/where to make things convenient for everybody.

69GT; Not having your car done is not a good enough excuse to not come to the meeting. Bringing an Opel to the meeting is expected, but not a requirement. Jim

If you know anybody interested or have one for sale at a good price please let me know. I had a 70 gt and loved it cept for it ate up points. was like driving a go cart, totalled it out. that was in 74. the answer to that one guys problem with stalling is vapor lock, ask him if he has that plate underneath the carb or did somebody remove it in times gone by.

I'd sooner be in Michigan in the spring, summer and fall. You win in the winter, here we have to rest our Opels (keep them out of the salt) Jim:)

here is a link to the frankenmuth show from 2005. it was featured on "my classic car" earlier this spring. if a "big show" is more for or likings this seems to be a nice place. my only worry is we'll surely not fit in with muscle cars and hot rods, lol, and maybe we'd be better off with our own small opel meet? just trying to throw out ideas and get a ball rolling somwhere at least
