    WTB Gemini / Buick Opel mid 70's vintage

    Hello everyone,

    Just curious if anyone can point me to where I may find Gemini/ Buick Opel in the Northern California area. I owned, circuit & drag raced a few in my younger years. Looking to own one.

    Thank you

    Thank you Opel Boy. I even notice the Opel Manta in the background.
    My favorite color would have been orange for both cars.
    Realizing its slim pickings out there I may as well look into this.
    I will call them tomorrow.

    How did you find one so fast?
    What search engine?

    Thank you
    SS

    I had actually been looking for one a couple months ago, so I knew when it came up. what I was doing was using Searchtempest and searching for 'opel' within 1500 miles of me, and then just weeding through the results. incidentally, the one I have my eye on is orange (also my favorite color for these), but it's in Georgia.

    Awww shucks :cry: I too wanted an Orange one. I did call the number. It turns out its OpelsUnlimited.
    I ask about the Manta in the background too. They will be sending me pics.

    Just as soon Tammy sends me more pics and answers three emails and two phone messages. I was promised that they would send pics and info lastnight. I called them and left messages and emails no reply.

    It easily a five hour plus hour drive for me one way. I was warned at other forums to be very careful. Prices change on the fly, so I have been warned by a few via PM. Sadly what do you when they have what you want and they seem to be the only game in town.

    Luckily for me I am in no rush. I still have my trusty old 1980 Plymouth Arrow D50 pick up, aka Mitsubishi in orange. It will have to do. Until a Gemini or 70~73 Manta Rallye shows up.

    yeah, it kinda sucks because there's just not that many of these to pick from. I don't know if it interests you or not, but there's another one for sale in California. It's a pretty nice looking red one in Santa Ana, but the price is higher.

    Thank you for watching over me, but that red one is little over the top for me.
    Plus red cars and I do not get along.
    Well Tammy has probably forgotten about me at Opels Unlimited / Opels Enthusiast Club in Rialto CA ( SoCal).

    Sad..... I guess the hunt continues. I better open it to the mantas and gemini's.

    Oh btw: theres a silver I-mark in my neck of the woods. I cannot seem to be
    on the same side of road when I see it. It is always at opposing lanes go figure.

    Did you buy the orange Gemini/ Buick Opel?

    I'm actually working out how to get it home, but I think I have that covered. I want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row before I actualy pull the trigger, but yes, I definitely plan to.
