Tadd here,
Seattle WA, 1973 Opel GT (Not yet running, located in Ferndale at PO's property, he's kind enough to let me work on it there for a while). I'm a new member and new Opel owner, I'm not quite knowledgeable on them as of yet but I'm learning by the day; so I'll kindly accept any help/tips/recommendations etc.

Good to have you Tadd not just a Pacific Northwest member, but a Opel owner member of this forum. One of if not the best resource you will ever discover about wanting information on Opel's. Great bunch of people that are extremely knowledgeable and willing to share with you. There are many Opel owners in your area. I live in the Port Orchard area which about is about 3 hours away. I'm hoping there is a Pacific Northwest Opel gathering sometime this summer. In the past, there has been gatherings, not sure about this year though.

George from the high desert side with a 71 GT that's finally getting paint! Now if I could only find a new windshield... I called Pilkington and they stopped doing the classic glass 3 weeks ago. Pro Source International's phone no longer works either.

I'm guessing from Eastern Washington 🌞 good to have you and we share the same, 1971 Opel GT :)
Hopefully. this event will go on as scheduled and many Opeler's around the region will attend.
That's a bummer to hear about Pilkington. Do they make any windshield that fits Opel GT's? I think they are the only ones in the US that makes windshields for the Opel's. I saw one recently on eBay that didn't look to bad. Hope you will be able to attend the car show in August.

I completely forgot about the meet. Did it happen on the first?

Not sure, I was out of town. I'm guessing it was cancelled only because there has been nothing put out to promote it. Maybe someone else will chime in and give better information.

Doug Strasser here. I just arrived to the PNW in Sep, but I have owned a 72 gt since 1995. I'm in Lakewood just outside Joint Base Lewis McChord. I'd be happy to help anyone out.

It would be kinda cool to get together with a few guys to work on an Opel.
