After looking at a few people locations when they post, I've noticed there are a fair number of us from Ontario, mostly southern Ontario. who on the forums is from Ontario? maybe enough for a meet sometime in the future...... :cool: I'd be in for a road trip to see some opels, anyone else?

head count...

It's maybe a good time to revise the Ontario Opeler head count...it's been a couple of years since we did a roll call....
You'll find me in the East end of Toronto (The Bluffs), along with more Manta's than any sane man would consider.... ;)

Ottawa Opelers

Hello simplemind7;
There are two registered Opelers on this site who live in Ottawa, ON. Myself (a.k.a. jpiper) and Graham. Graham has also met with another Opeler just west of Ottawa, in Kanata (home of the Corel Center and the Ottawa Senators). So that makes three here in the nations capital. You can check my gallery here on the site for pics of out cars. A meet is a good suggestion.

i though a meet would be a good thing, since i haven't been priveliged enough to see any opel running in person, just on this site and whatever other place on the internet. i'm sure if we all brought some parts we could have ourselves a decent swap meet as long as some more opelers chime in here..... i've got my fair share of extra parts and a few i need to get my hands on..... anyone else?

Brendan,

Do you know a fellow who goes by the handle "old_school_vw"? He has posted several extremely rude posts in response to your threads, and claims to live in your home town of Ayr. According to his Profile, his postal code is N0B 1E0 (is that Ayr?) and he drives a 1994 VW Jetta 1.9 Turbo Diesel. He even provided his e-mail address as ceilingspeck5"at"hotmail.com, if any of that is true. Anyway, if you know him, tell him he has been terminated from this site.

Makes me embarrassed to be a fellow Canadian :mad:

yes i would like to get together with other opelers. I'm in the Waterloo region. I have a 71 GT that's in the process of being rebuilt (10yrs). I'm building a shop right now so once I get it done I can work on the GT again. George

waterloo region? i can drive there in about half an hour :D you wouldn't happen to need/have any extra parts would you? i've got a pretty nice collection of ones i probably won't ever use and a few that i still need to get my hands on..... could be pretty convenient trading with someone close by.

how much work do you have left to do on your gt?

Where abouts do you live here in Ottawa? Graham and I live in the East end, Orleans. Drop a line to me in my onsite email box and we can converse about getting a meeting arranged at a local Timmy's.

Hello all, I decided that since I was seeing my name on this thread more than I was posting, I decided it was time to jump in.

As John has said I'm from Orleans/Ottawa, he and I get together every couple of months and we have had our opels at a couple of cruise nights and one car show over the last year.

I think it would be a good thing to get all of us Ontario folks together. We could meet in either Ottawa or Toronto or some place in between, perhaps Kingston?

I have a couple of pics of my 71 GT on this site but non of the finished product.

If any of you are in the area or just want to call to discuss---my phone number is (613) 841-7444.

I am also in Orleans (Fallingbrook). I unfortunately cannot simply drive my 71 GT somewhere to meet because it is still on blocks! Connecting might still be fun however!
