Very good post, I was looking for this information all day long, can you please send me by mail more details about it. Thanks
i have that exact same opel in my garage
Ahhh old car commerials… before they went al ‘Semi art interesting’
my bro got one!
Thumbs up if this car looks like a compact Corvette!
@BAR1918m4a3 It was actually designed back in ’65
looks a lil` bit like 1969 Corvette Sting-Ray
que cabus señor no lo enseñe por favor
How times change. When these were out & about, I never cared for ‘em much. Too small in a sea of 6 litre + V8′s . But it did & does look cool. I would like to drive one to see what there all about.
Great video, i am a opel fan too…take a look at my video of my opel rekord 67 with camera on board….
I’m 6’6″ and I had plenty of room in my ’71 Opel GT.. Those headlights however, did not perform like in this commercial. With all my might, I was able to pull the lever to engage them. From then on, they were always up!!!
I LOVED MY OPEL GT!!!
I MISS IT DEARLY!!!
Check out the 2010 Opel GT… SWEET!!!
i also forget the wiper motor seizing up prob with these GT cars. let them sit a while and they seize up. still no biggie.
hee. i always thought the small size was over dramitized in this commercial 4 theatrical purposes.
my opel GT like this one has plenty of room to get in.
i think they look better with no bumpers on the back also for a more corvette look.
opel gt, #1 volkswagon and chevette. best cars ever made even with the material problems such as steel GT body thats rust prone. and clips etc on the chevette that are broke prone. the VW has noise probs, but thats about it.
still best cars ever.
Ahhhhhh….the Poor Man’s Sting Ray! Delightful.
denpeters, you’re missing the ’73. My very first car was a 1970, but my father owned two 1973 models.
I had the 1971. Great car. Loved the left pedal wiper switch. Wish cars today had it.
I thought GTs were made/imported from 1968 to 1972. That would make only 5 model years. Which year am I missing? Myself, I had a 1970 stock which totally ROCKED! The only thing small about the car that I remember is the room around the engine under the hood. You needed small hand or a lot of patience to work on them. I am six foot tall and not skinny and had no trouble getting in or out of the car and moving around quite freely once inside. I’d love to have another to play with!
nice car such a small car.
very glad your video is still there. Youtube deleted some Opel GT videos in the last weeks.
I own a 72 Opel GT and have had it for about 10 years. I’m 6’3″ tall. They have the seat moved forward quite a bit in this commercial. This car has ample leg and headroom for me. So much, in fact, that I have the seat slid forward two notches. I will say, however, that getting in and out of this car DOES require effort, as it is so low to the ground.
Hahaha Funny video and Funny guy!
@ TacoLuvr: …did I sound like a “snobby teacher”? Sorry for that, I just wanted to explain the text in the commercial, no offense. By the way, my uncle drove a GT in the 1970′s, and I remember it as a very cool and fast car – but inside very small. So the tv spot is quite right about that. Fortunately, neither my uncle not me were too fat than…today is another thing;-)
prilstrudel, I don’t understand German language. Oh well, at least now I know my Opel GT wasn’t stolen by an old fat guy.
the man is too old and fat for the Opel GT, because it was a car for the (then) modern youth! that’s the joke implied in the spot, and the german text explains it quite frankly.
we zijn nu 3 jaar verder ….en nog steeds maken ze dit model nog niet ..,waarom niet ? .., geen enkel merk durft een buitensporig model te maken .., ze blijven ouderwets en lijken allemaal op elkaar …. we willen dit in de showroom zien staat ! vb segway bestaat nu al 10 jaar en veel zie je er nog niet…we moeten mee met onze tijd !
Energy sources without the need for fuel or energy input exist ,But the coverup is very strong,Find a motor that needs no fuel or input at LT-MAGNET-MOTORdotCOM ,Let the revolution begin!
i will buy a car like that.. it is soo cool!!
WTF, did you see the interiors of this car?? Its amazing! Can’t wait to see it!
Its a future hybrid of Opel. I like his headlights.
I have a Prius now and love it. I’ve had it 3 years and I average about 50 mpg. This will be my car in 2010
wow this just made the world more fat and lazy, but very economical
