I got another one

When you’re tackling a big project you’ll need a lot of parts and in the case of an Opel GT that is a difficult and expensive proposition. Luckily, included with the purchase of my yellow Opel was a second, rougher, red car.

Abandoned in the woods for who knows how long this thing is a total goner but even still, it has parts that I can use. Parts that I need from it are a front bumper, front marker lights, grill assembly, rear light lenses, and seats.

And while my yellow Opel came with free storage on a concrete pad outside a shop, they won’t let me keep a second car there for free so I’ll likely end up gutting this one and parting it right in my driveway. Sorry neighbours!

Anyways I still have to go get this parts car. It was described to me as being down a ravine and across a creek. I’ll be borrowing a Ram Rebel with gnarly mud tires, a trailer with a winch and hoping for the best!
