just posting to let everybody know my home is opel to a OAA gathering this october. my home is in Gobles MI 49055 if you wanna see it on mapquest. 30 minutes from lake michigan, hour from the indiana boarder. theres 3 GTs from this area, withing 10 minutes of my home that would attend, and i have 2 right now myself, a 3rd one from the next town over would be a great possability. anyway, my home is open, plenty of opelers and opels would be here already, just wondering how many others would be intrested in coming?

far as i know its the 11th or 12th from what i've heard. it'd be great to get some opelers here, i'll email some of the michigan members and some indiana or illinois members too, try and get some of you guys out here, total of 6GTs withing 5 miles of my home, 5 are driveable or will be by that time. 4 are driveable for sure right now but only 3 are legal. besides, i'll let you guys pick through my parts if you need em and sherry is a killer cook, can't beat her cooking. lets fill my 2 acre yard with Opels of all kinds.

well hippie, goes like this. int he spring i found a GT settin in someones back yard, its junk and rotted good for parts only, but they have a SOLID running driving 72 GT with auto and AC!!! the old lady is kinda grumpy so i just deal with the old man cuz he's really nice but hard to catch just him at home. i JUST got rid of my 72 auto GT to a buddy at work, not even a week ago and he's already driving it, so he's new. Mike Z just bought one a few weeks ago, just found out about him last week, so he's new to the area. mike has 1, ace has 1, i have 2, and the old couple has 2. so i've just discovered these opelers in the past couple months.

OAA - Oct ?

Well, since there is no official date for OAA, but it has usually been the 2nd weekend of Oct. for the last few years. I say make it either Saturday Oct 9 or Sunday Oct 10. Plus Monday is Columbus day so some people may have a long weekend.

That weekend would be 2 weeks after the RT 66 Springfield, IL Opel event. It would give those of us going there a break before gathering again. Plus either of those days are the best weekend for me. :) So Hopefully that date will be fine for our NE Ohio/W.PA gathering as long as our usual hosts agree.

:eek: Must have been "brain-farting" that day! What I meant was, I thought jared had storage problems from lack of yard/property. And Sherry (girlfriend?) being a good cook, maybe he got married. :eek: Thanks otto. If I had went back and edited my previous, it might have made more sense.
Seems my mind was "wondering" and "wandering" at the same time! :D

sherry is my step mother, shes a awesome cook, my girlfriend tho however, in the past year we've been dating, dont seem to be able to cook all to well, altho she can bake anything imaginable, dont make sense does it? we got 2 acres, i still live at home, the barn is just cramped with 2 cars, tool boxes, benches, and one room in the barn is full of motors, i have one CIH in the barn now, he aint yellin so i think things are all cool again.

That kinda sucks but its cool. Jared is right though guys...just come and hang out! Heck, even just bring pictures and them come BS and eat. You don't have to stay all day, just for a couple hours or somethin! I know jared has a lot of parts if you need anything and if anyone wants, I'll bring some stuff too! Whats a few hours outta your weekend?
