1970 Opel GT

The GT was a small sports car produced by Opel in the late '60s and early '70s. Based on the Kadett, the GT was available with either a 1.1 or 1.9, which produced enough HP for such a small and light car. Interestingly, Opels from this period were sold at Buick dealerships, showing the more upscale intent of these cars. I suppose with older, rarer cars such as this, it's a good idea to have spare parts on hand, and I'd wager having two complete cars is enough to keep up with any mechanical failures the best one may have.

  1. Holy cow! I drove by these Friday evening on Northlake and did a double-take. If I hadn't been in the middle of a double date, I'd have pulled over and taken my own photos!
