Greetings From The UK's Opel Kadett C Club

Post by gernster » Tue Mar 09, 2010 6:27 pm

Hello all!

I am writing on behalf of the UK Opel Kadett C Club and Forum at www.opel-kadett-c.co.uk There are not many Opel Kadetts left in our country, but we are trying to get all the cars thats remain back together in a club.

I know that there were far more Opels sold in europe, we had to put up with the Vauxhall Chevette, not as good as the Kadett :D :D

Its is hard for us to buy parts in the UK so ofen buy from ebay.de and ebay.nl but find it hard to translate sometimes!

Anyway, hello and I hope we cam keep in touch and maybe visit some of your shows!

Andy

Hello Andy,

Very nice that we get visiters from the UK !!

Off course is the Kadett-C a far more better car than the Chevette :wink: :)

If we can help at any way ... let us now !!

With kind regards,
Erik

Welcome, is the majority of the left-over C's in the UK right-hand-steered? And how many are there left over there, any idea?

Hello Andy,

WELCOME!!!

The population of Kadett c in the UK isn't indeed that massive.

Once I was at the big rally in Billing, there were eight Kadett c's.
Two yellow/black GT/E's, an orange one with a 16 valve, a brown one with a 3.5 v8 from a Rover and four Dutch visitors :wink:

Keep up the good work!

Best regards,

Dennis

Helo and many thanks for the warm welcome!!

yes all our cars are right hand steered they did sell them here in the UK as right hand steer, but not many as most poeple stuck with vauxhall chevette - dont ask me why!

Billing is our biggest Vauxhall/ Opel show and we are trying to get invited to attend with our kadetts this year.

We are not sure how many kadetts are left here, but we know of about 50 cars but our forum is growing all the time. The kadett is very popular in Ireland and the Irish buy UK kadetts then take them over there so we have lost a lot of cars that way too :(

Hello,

Nice to speek you after a long time!

You are the photographer? My friend was proud of a picture he became from a locale newspaper. After some talking it seems you took that picture in the 70's at a carrallye.

I also bought some parts of you from e-bay along time ago (ZFgearbox rubber and more).

It would be cool you all guys to visit our rally at Sevenum Holland at 4 5 and 6 of June this year, it's our 20est aniversery :wink:

Best regards,
Dennis
