    It appears that some sort of Opel-eating monster took a big bite out of the trunk lid. This car has been used up , though drivetrain and chassis parts may still have some life left in them. Here we see a rotund Stalingrad vet trying and failing to squeeze into a GT. To counter Dr Olds, the Opel GT, when it first came out in the States in , competed with the Porsche and Datsun Z, and all three had a healthy waiting list before you could take delivery, they were so popular.

    Personally, the only tragic thing about the Opel GT was that it had to compete in sales with the Z. A horsepower six cylinder Datsun versus the horsepower four cylinder Opel, who do you think sold more cars?. The tag line at the end is, more or less, is: The car looked just like a mini Corvette, for chrissake!

    A separate Opel brand? Funny that GM or Ford with Pantera didnt think this idea was feasible with decent German engineering, but saw fit to do so with Korean and Japanese makes in its Geo venture. Here in Texas, Opel were barely on the same lot as the Buicks.

    So, the cars were nearly a full city block away from the main Buick showroom, sort of where the used car department would be today. The big headache was parts and service. Parts usually had to be ordered and most dealer mechanics did not have their own set of metric tools back in 68, 69 and I lusted for an Opel GT back in the day.

Instead of relying on bean counters who gave us the Vega with a poorly designed alloy motor and subpar rustproofing they could have just borrowed and improved upon Opel mechanicals. A better designed Vega with the Opel 1. I dunno if I would specifically beat on the bean-counters here. Seems to me that GM Management looked at the cost-analysis sheet provided by the finance department and reasoned it would rather save a few bucks with sub-par but at home engineering than it would to bring from their division overseas.

    This is what happens when shareholders expect, no, demand an increase in profits ever quarter. Aside from GM giving up on Pontiac right when those and the Solstice were marketed, what happened there? Poor communication with their public? Nobody aware that these were probably the very best Pontiac products in ten years?

    What a waste and shame. It would have been the G6, G8 and the Solstice. Not bad for a dead company. They chose Pontiac because Buicks can command high enough prices to be profitable at low volumes and, no doubt, the China connection was a factor, too.

    Even in the UK, they were selling Opels and Vauxhalls alongside each other for some time, no rebadging even considered. The first car I ever fell in lust with, at the age of ten, strictly based on their advertisements.

    I can distinctly remember seeing one in the flesh for the first time and being shocked at how small it was compared to the huge American iron all around it. In the early seasons he drove a Sunbeam Alpine. Check the website http: These were nice two seaters to throw around in the twisties. It was basically a 4-bay body shop in the back with about a 20x25ft showroom in front. Held 2 cars and a couple of desks and a dinky office in one cornor. I think it was originally a gas station.
