  10. OPEL OPEL OPEL, REGAL REGAL REGAL< new cars 2012, all 100% opel yet we call it a BUICK?????? what a minute, lets all go back. in 58 buick introduced the Opel to USA. and had it at dealers, till 1980. Sorry board, but here we go again. A division is not the responsibility of members, but the board should announce they have a division under the club for Opel to participate at national and local / region meets. Put in small guide lines, and examples. open to modified , original, and survivor like Buick has rights too. Yes I know Regal will be built in USA but still is 100% imported p

Can I use a "short water pump" or early short non AC car/? if have short pump then just tight fit. if other wise, anyone ever berry the radiator like a VETTE under the nose of skyhawk at an angle close to grill with electric fan?? I want a real eye opener , when you open the hood there sits a 455 under the hood of a sub-compact car. Any advise on fit of 455 in H-body 75-80 skyhawk
