Many years ago I purchased my first car at the age of 13. It was a 1973 Opel GT and my dad and I did a facelift style restoration. It was basically just brought up from it’s unrestored state to a driveable weekend only type vehicle. It was not a complete restoration and it had many electrical problems so it wasn’t driven often. Fast forward to today…the car hasn’t been driven in well over a decade but I still have it. In the mean time I had moved to Sweden and built a life there. I have decided that I want to have the Opel with me in Sweden. So on my vacation to the US I am going to be working on getting my Opel GT in a running state so that it can be shipped to Sweden via Roll-On, Roll-Off shipping.
This is where I will document all of the little details and things that I do with the car. A fellow Opel GT owner who also owns a 73′ GT will also be joining me on this site sharing his adventures as he restores and modifies his Opel GT in Minnesota.
