Crusin' on the River, July 23, 2017, Cincinnati, Ohio: Ed's Favorite Car, an Opel GT
My favorite car at the show today was a very nice original Opal GT -- among the first imported to this country with the body built in France prior to the building of the Opal Rudesheim factory. Look at this photos -- original paint and original non-blemished brown leather seats. Only 43,000 documented miles on the car. I told the owner that he ever wanted to sell him give me a call.
Note the cute little German flag on the front fender in one of the photos; Of course the Goodyear tires are not spec, but that's a small thing. And recall the odd headlight lids that were manually opened and closed -- they tilted "inward" rather than up and down.
