OK OK OK......

Opels Unilimited (aka Opels Unreachable or OU to the rest of us..) is a touchy touchy subject. But let me go ahead and address it. In reagard to the OMC 25th aniversary weekend anyway.

First off - I LIKE TODD !!!! I can't help it... hes a nice guy, and he loves our Opels.

Secondly - G** Da** he is f***ing annoying.

Thirdly, in the upteenth conversation with him about ANSWERING HIS D*** phone, he swares Tammy and Debbie will be doing such. (this I believe as much as I beleve that I have anal dwelling butt monkeys... )

Fourthly, I got in touch with him...

Fifthly, he said he will be at Rialto at 2pm.... BUt dont expect him there before 3pm. Espcially since I told him to be there nolater than 1PM... If anything Iknow how to work on Todd time.

Sixthly, I know there have been issues with Todd. But A LOT has to do with the amount of work per day he is willing to put in. For over 10 years I think I have his pattern down.

4pm -9pm - Work at the shop
9pm -5am - Do Whatever
5am - 1pm - Sleep
1pm - 4pm - get ready for the day

If you can understand and accept that you can work with OU.

See anyone that wants to see the Rialto yard and have a great chance at actually meeting Todd in his own enviroment and actually buy some rare parts meet me at:

1310 Tamarind ave
Rialto, CA 92376

BTW he has a LOT of nice items in fiberglass for the GT

http://www.opelsunl.com/Repro.htm

If anyone wants me to buy them and ship them to them once I leave CA I can do that.

He really is a good source of parts IF YOU CAN GET IN TOUCH WITH HIM :eek:

Ok, time to tell a true story. I was building the 2.0 and found I was short bolts everywhere. I put out requests everywhere and Tom came through first and I'm still grateful. Just after that I got a care package that was decidely from Todd. A set of bolts for free in a mans sock for shipping. Honest to God blue stipe and all. On another note I was in a pinch to get the glass back in the GT and OGTS was on backorder and Todd pulled my butt out of the possibility of an all new interior outdoors with no rear window on a trade for parts I didn't need anyway. Same deal when I tried to rebuild the rear cylinders for the brakes so I could finally drive it. I know they can be hard to reach at times but patience and Opeling should go hand in hand. I'll get back off my soapbox now.

Ok when in doubt I have Tammy's cell # programmed into my phone. :cool:

I met Todd and Tammy last summer at the Tacoma meet (and another lady who helps out at OU, especially after Tammy's car accident, whose name escapes me), and I have to say I also quite liked him. Now, to say that Todd has a mild case of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) is like saying Charles doesn't have "... anal dwelling butt monkeys... ". What the HECK does that MEAN Charles?

Anyway, I digress. Couldn't help it, as my Ritalin supply is running low...

Oh yea, Todd. Big time Opel fanatic. Terrible business sense. Nonexistent, really. Nicest guy in the world to talk Opels with. REALLY tough to keep a single track going in a conversation, or even get the sense there is a track. Absolutely FULL of S**T. I mean, he flat out mis-represented the Jim Marchitto/Opels USA situation to me, just after I had talked to Jim myself. But a REALLY nice guy. Did I mention he is really into Opels. If it wasn't for Tammy, I doubt that Todd could find his own butt to wipe it, because he would be continually distracted by all the other cool things going on in the room, and in his mind.

Hey, how far from Van Nuys to Rialto? Charles, what day are you going? You mentioned the time, but I don't see the day. If I have the car (drop Myrna and the girls off at Six Flags or something), I could drive. Or, I would be interested in catching a ride. Please let me know, as I would just LOVE to see Todd's place first hand. I have seen a few photos, and the Opelness of it all is just AMAZING! I'm at the AirTel Thursday night at about six pm, and we haven't committed to anything on Friday yet (maybe the Petersen Museum?)

Keith that was Debbie. They used to be neighbors growing up and now last I heard were at least dating. A stabilizing influence if you ask me. Keith the sale of parts in the US is the side business for him.

So you don't have to go through any more time wondering
"... anal dwelling butt monkeys... "
is in reference to Wayne's World as Marc said. It is paraphrasing (I believe) a quote from Mike Myers character Wayne when he says:
Shaaa....and monkeys might fly out my <butt>
On a side note, although Mike Myers is a comic genius, you would better spend your time watching "So I Married an Axe Murder" if you wanted to watch some of his older stuff :) .

Oh, I don't know. I think Charles has been accused of having flaming anal dwelling butt monkeys. :D
I had forgotten that dialogue. Mike's a funny guy. He's Canadian eh!

Actually its a reference to "Bruce Almighty" with Jim Carrey.

Once he was given the powers of God, a hood tries to pick a fight with him.

< Scene >

Hood: You want me and the homies to apologize right?

[Bruce nods]

Hood: Okay Cool, man, the day a monkey comes out of my butt is the day you'll get your sorry.

Bruce: Well, how ironic, cause that's TODAY.

< Bruce then abliges by having a monkey come out of his butt and break through his trowsers (The look on the guys face was genius ;) >

After Bruce does that, he looks at the little monkey and says:

Bruce: Hey, little anal-dwelling butt monkey. Time for you to go home, little buddy.

At which time the monkey starts chasing the hood, who of course is running for his life since he doesn't want the little anal dwelling butt monkey to return from where it came.

:)

I did forget to give a date didn't I..? That would be Thursday the 11th, I will make a concerted effort to get Todd to Rialto no later than 4PM. I of course will do this by getting him up at 12 noon, and push him as much as I can..

Living in "Todd Time" is a unique and interesting experience. How he does it all teh time is beyond me ;)
