    When I was very young (late ’60s), a neighbor of ours had an Opel, and occasionally gave us rides in it. Even then I recall it as being a remarkably small and underpowered car, so I’m not surprised that they didn’t catch on in the American market. However, others may have had different experiences.

    I had a 1972 Rekord when stationed in Germany. 4 door. Good car. Until I rammed it into a tree going off the road on black ice.

    Two Kadett station wagons (’66, ’71) and I still have my ’74 Manta. Fun cars. I need to get that Manta back on the road…

    Don’t care much for the car, but there’s some incredible scenery here. Dang, I’d love to visit Europe someday.
