Hey Folks,
Here we have the latest flyer for the June Bug Festival to be held here in Perris, CA on Saturday, June 14, 2014...it's actually a 6 page flyer that has just gone into the mail to the 100's on our Opel Enthusiast Club mailing list. We have been trying to get all 6 pages to load for the last 3 hours, but have been having some problems with the size of the upload. If you need more information, please feel free to contact us at 909-355-OPEL (6735) or 562-690-1051 as Todd and Debbie will be happy to walk you through all of this year's spring and summer shows.

This sale will continue thru the Carlisle event in May, the June Bug Festival in June and the Opel GT's of Washington show in July. This will be the last sale of the season with the exception of the special sales that we will put together for each of these events.

This is Tammy and I will be there at Carlisle, see you soon!

Take Care and Happy Opeling,

Hi Guys! I have been hearing that there is some trouble actually seeing the June Bug Festival information that I posted last time, so I am re-typing and re-posting the information to make it easier for all to access.

Take Care and Happy Opeling,

Tammy


OPEL ENTHUSIAST CLUB
1ST ANNUAL
JUNE BUG
FESTIVAL

The Opel Enthusiast Club is excited to be preparing for the Opel June Bug Festival on June 14th. The setting is a beautiful estate built for the Mayor of Perris and has had a lot of famous parties and even celebrities like Sonny Bono and Music Videos made here. A super great location, lots of dirt free asphalt parking for a great many cars. The paved streets span the entire 5 acres. There is a huge Ballroom Dance Floor setting, as well as great catered food from Casa Jimenez on the main bar inside the Manor. The whole 5 acres known as Hidden Paradise or Martin's Magical Manor will be available to Opel Nuts around the world on this day. We urge people to check out the location on Google Maps to see what we mean. There is even a 2 acre flat show field on the front part of the property as well. All us Opel Nuts will be glad to see you at this annual Opel June Bug Festival. Just three more months. We all can't wait.

Entrance is free.

Venue is 20610 Eureka Street, Perris, CA 92571.

Saturday June 14, 2014

Picnic Hours are 12 Noon to 6 pm
Party Hours are 6 pm to 12 Midnight

Lots of seating and lots of parking for everyone, there are lots of lawn areas to play Horse Shoes and Bocce Ball, Bowling etc. Don't forget folks we have the Solex Shot Put contest and Clutch Discus Throw contest. Winners receive a Gift Certificate coupon to spend on Opel Parts. There will be lots of prizes and give-a-ways for the cars that show up, contests as well.

I guess we always have to be sure and say if it's not painted or not pretty bring it anyway. There are not enough Opels around to exclude these from the Show. Drag it, Pull it, Push it, Trailer it if you have to, there is plenty of room for everyone and we all want to see a work in progress. Bench racing stories will run amok and you are all welcome here.

The purple flowers are a real favorite and in June there will be thousands and thousands of them.



Opel GT Chrome Bumper Solution

Hey Folks,
Here is another thing that has come up a lot in the last couple of months. We have finally run out of re-chromed GT bumpers and with the last NOS ones at a premium we are looking for a solution for the customers as well as for all of the showroom cars we are building currently....So all along we have been selling bumpers really cheap, good used mostly, and so now today we go to see what it costs out there to have bumpers done and we were shocked to find out that re-chroming bumper sets was $1,200 to $1,400 a set and you had to have good cores already. No good cores, no set. The only alternative was Stainless and they sell for some $1,200 to $1,400, And stainless is dark, not the luster of real thick chrome. Good for some themes and paint jobs but not all.

So here's what we are doing...one great old customer dropped the money on us in advance and said get me some real Opel original re-chromed bumpers, both front and rear, and get me the front guards and rear guards as well; 7 pieces to re-chrome in all, could we do it? The answer is yes. We lucked out at the car show we were able to strike a dealer’s deal, complete with no resale tax, and have already turned in some nice straight bumper cores. Actually today we laid out 100 rear bumpers and 20 front bumpers as well as 50 guards. We are picking and choosing straight pieces to head to our next classic car re-chromer. What we liked mostly about this guy is that only a couple of months ago he did a front bumper for a guy without knowing us, no access to parts or cores, cross country searching, including shipping for anything, even out of a junk yard. It painted the usual story. He was so happy to meet us and we were so happy to meet him. He even wanted some cores for himself. Like we said he has a great big company already.

We are actually trying to get the prices even lower if we can start turning things in 10 at a time, we can get things at even better prices. Also, here's the even bigger kicker, now we can order just the guards or rear bumpers or front bumper, no one is stuck buying that stainless set for so much money any more. Any orders would be appreciated to help us with our buying power please call 909-355-OPEL (6735) or 562-690-1051.

Here is all the separate pricing for re-chromed GT bumpers using the original cores from Opels Unlimited. So an outright separate item price looks like this-
Front GT Bumper Guards are $79.95 a piece
GT Front Bumper is $399 each
GT Rear Bumper Guards are $69.95 a piece
GT Rear Bumper is $199 each
Any of these items can be purchased separately so you do not have to purchase an entire set. Like we told you earlier, there are limited quantities available so get your orders in first and every two to three months, every time that big car show hits, we will be getting our orders in. Of course if you have your own cores that are good enough for you to re-chrome the prices for you all will be even cheaper.

So let's see if we can use your original core.
Re-chroming the Front Bumper would be $299.
Re-chroming your Front Guards would be $60 each.
Re-chroming the Rear Bumpers would be $149 each and the Rear Guards would be $59 each.
Thanks for hanging in there with us while we got this all figured out for you guys.

Take Care and Happy Opeling.
