Today at the local hardware store, I drove the Opel to get a few interior screws, I walk outside and an old man (near 60+) is looking over the Opel. He says "Nice looking corvette, Is it a 66?" I tell him it's an Opel GT. He then points to the GM emblem on the back of the car under the rear window and says "That's a GM Corvette". I tell him it's not a 66 but a 69, get in the car and drive away.........Man, I really like this car........
