FSI, circa 1998

Me sitting on the hood of my late grandpa’s Opel Rekord C Coupe, purchased new by him in 1969. Shortly after the photograph above was taken he purchased a Montrealblaumetallic BMW 316i Compact for 36.000 Deutsche Mark. The Opel was sold off to a guy in a neighboring small village. In 2002 me and my grandfather finally reunited. Well, at least for a couple of hours at the local Wal Mart at an Opel meet.


To my surprise the Rekord lives on. I found this photo while googling Opel Rekord Coupes and apparently the photos was taken this year. I’d love to own this car some day.
