Just received my Hemmings Motor New for September 2005 and boy did I have a surprise. Not 1, not 2, not 3 items on Opels but 4 (3 photos and 1 write up). The write up was on a 1950's Caravan station wagon. The photos were from the 2005 Carlisle Import Nationals. The original 1.1 liter Green GT was one of the first photos in the write up of the Nationals, then there was the 1984 Opel Sentor CD ( Do we know anyone with one :rolleyes: ) , and then a group photo with four opels in it (Manta, two GTs and a Kadett). The group photo had the caption "The Opel club managed a good turnout;...."

It look like we are starting to get some respect. I think a lot has to do with this web site.

Thank you Gary!!!

If you don't have a scanner, bring that article to my house and we'll scan it for the site.

Great , I think!,, Just read on the most wanted vehicles to be stolen,, and the Opel GT is not on the list, :rolleyes: , but after all the press on it ,,, I hope it doesn't make the list next year... :eek:

So keep an eye on your GT,, mater of fact , stick it under your pillow at night. :D

Ahemmm... :rolleyes:

I will have to get a copy too.. ;)

But, I would like to think its a combination of things...

Maybe Hemmings did that as a precursor to us working with Carlisle Productions on highlighting the Opel Marquee next year. We will be after all celebrating our 10th anniversary as the OANA at Carlilse next year. :eek:

It's only $6.00 at your local Barnes and Nobles. I went out at lunch at got mine. It is the September issue. My GT didn't make it, but another yellow one which was next to the Broadspeed Manta did :)

Gene,
I would love to come by with the artical but....I am on the other side of Atlanta (after that crash on 285 took me 2 hr to get to work). I will try to get it scaned at work and then post it and the photos tomarrow (Friday).

That way everyone will see the photos and the very short artical (I may type the artical in tonight).

But for the European members is a scan really useful
That's right. I was thinking locally, not globally. :p

Hemmings ad

Speaking of Hemmings, I just searched their site for Opels for sale, since I'm in the market. There's a guy on there with a 73 GT. He's wants $25,000 for it! :eek: Of course, he did say it's negotiable.
