Pocket Pony Car

I found an Opel Kadett B LS Coupe in almost perfect condition a few hours ago. And what a sweetheart it is! This is the second post of the day, so from now on I shall call Easter Sunday "Pony Car Day"!

Even compared to the Fiat 500 parked behind it the Opel is tiny. Since we Germans are renowned to succesfully build pocket-sized versions of big things, the Kadett still has all the design traits a true Pony Car needs.

The owner wasn't around and because there are no badges on the car I can't tell you what engine is hiding under the hood. It's a small one for sure...

Enjoy!

The "H" on the license plate identifies the car as historic. To quote Wikipedia:

Classic cars (known in German by the pseudo-English expression Oldtimer) can get an H (historisch, historic) at the end of the plate, such as K-AA 100H in order to preserve the so-called "vehicle of cultural value" (kraftfahrtechnisches Kulturgut"). It also includes a flat tax of appr. €190 per year. The requirements for a vehicle for an H-Plate are:

  • minimum age of the vehicle of 30 years from first registering
  • must be in original condition and well maintained. Some features such as safety belts or a catalytic converter which have been added are accepted and are not in conflict with the "original condition" rule

Don't mind the odd-looking chrome above the license plate. Since you could read the plate in the reflection I had to use my poor photoshop skills to hide it.

The shape of the rear window is spectacular.

And finally a picture of the interior. It's always difficult to photograph through glass though.
