Q: Opinion about Opels

What do you think about Opels?

A: Believe it or not, the first car I’ve ever ...

Believe it or not, the first car I’ve ever owned was an Opel. I paid 550 bucks and really drove it a lot from high school until I went to graduate school. It was fun, but I only paid 550 for it. Now, they don’t sell Opels in the United States anymore. They haven’t for years. Realize that Opel is one of the early German car manufacturers. I mean, they’ve been around for a long time. I know they sell them all over Europe, but here in the United States, it is hard to get parts for them. Even when I had one, it was almost impossible to get parts for it. In Europe, I’m sure it is easier to get parts for it, so it wouldn’t be too bad.
