hoping to get it painted to match the car some time soon.

Opel GT

Was flipping trough some old pics and ran across this car I forgot about.

I bought this yellow 1970 Opel GT from a buddy with the thought of cutting it down the middle and widening it 10". The idea was to make it look like a Ford GT40.

Just before I actually made the "cut" I changed my mind. My sister decided to buy the car but wanted it in white so I painted it for her and off she went. Two month later the carb backfired in a shopping mall parking lot and the car caught on fire and burned up. Sis was OK.

Nice Wayne! I notice the plate beginning with a C. One of the first ON permanent plates to be issued. I remember you could tell where the car was plated as the letters only going up to about E at first were assigned geographically in the province.
