My first car in real life was an Opel. It was a wedding present from my first wife’s parents. We thought we’d got a German car but examining the paper work we found our Corsa was assembled in Luton. I like Opels but I only have ten in miniature.
My collection of model Opels isn’t as large as I’d like. I would love some of the seventies coupes like the Manta A, Monza and Commodore Coupe.
Here I have two models with pull back motors, which aren’t Kinsmart. The yellow Opel Speedster is by Maisto (1:35 scale) and the red Astra GTC is by Welly. The Hot Wheels Opala isn’t a German Car really, the “Opala” was assembled in Brazil combining the body of an Opel Commodore Coupe with the engine from a Chevrolet Impala.
Latest addition to my collection, the sleek Opel Bitter CD from the seventies.
