Easter Oppomeet 2019, France. A report. Easter Oppomeet 2019, France. A report.

After spamming you with reminders for months, it finally started April 15th; the week-long Oppomeet in France. 16 people, 15 cars and countless liters of alcohol fuel. Here’s a report.

How do you make a USDM vehicle street legal in Europe. How do you make a USDM vehicle street legal in Europe.

Step one: fix the taillights. This Dodge barge shows you how it’s done. The USDM reverse lights get an Amber bulb and are converted into indicators. There is a new reverse light added, and a rear fog light. Done.

Oppomeet France, T minus 2 weeks Oppomeet France, T minus 2 weeks

On April 15th Oppo readers of 8 different nationalities will gather in Eastern France for a 5-day meet. We will drive through the mountains, visit the Peugeot museum, do a rallye, explore the culinary (and alcoholic?) culture and much more. But what shall we do during this rallye?

Can you guess how much we pay for 4 (or 5) nights per person? Less. No, far less. There is even a game room. And a hot tub. And yes, there are still some spare beds remaining!

Help me pick a license plate Help me pick a license plate

I’m going to need a German license plate soon. Due to where I live I’m bound to the first section of the plate (STA). I can choose the latter half though. It should start with 1-3 letters, followed by 1-3 numbers if I’m not mistaken. Any tips?

BMW E30 Touring for sale BMW E30 Touring for sale

I just spotted this purple (from the factory) BMW E30 Touring (wagon) for sale, close to me. I’m not interested myself, I have owned a few, but maybe someone else here is? Could probably be in the US or Canada for about €6-7 k. edit: I checked it out in person. Pictures!

Meanwhile, on and around the Nürburgring Meanwhile, on and around the Nürburgring

... there’s the oppomeet! Due to the race that had just ended (rubber braking trails) and the ongoing rain it was incredibly slippery. There was a lot of wheelspin, brakes locking up and even a 360. Tomorrow: Oktoberfest in Munich.

Oppomeet + Nürburgring + Oktoberfest in Munich? Oppomeet + Nürburgring + Oktoberfest in Munich?

Yes, why not? As many must have noticed we’re organizing an Oppo meet at the Nürburgring the weekend of September 22-23. After that, many will continue to the Alps until Sept. 28. But given that Oktoberfest in Munich starts on September 22nd, we’ll go to the Alps via Munich. Everyone is still invited!

Yesterday my odometer showed this. Not bad for an Italian built French brand coupe that has been extremely reliable and cheap to keep up for six  years now...

How the British saw American cars... in 1973 How the British saw American cars... in 1973

It’s an interesting take. Including a short review of the (and I quote Ash78) Mercury Markwiss Browham:

My 31 year old convertible doesn't have AC. How do I change this? My 31 year old convertible doesn't have AC. How do I change this?

It left the factory without AC. OEM AC parts are made of unobtanium. As I see it I’ve got 3 options: 1. Pay someone too much money, 2. Cobble something together, 3. Cooled seats with thermoelectric peltier elements. What would you do? And why?

Euro meet schedule Euro meet schedule

With our absolutely brilliant 5-day March Wales behind us it’s time to talk about future European meets. We’ve got another 3 planned for 2018: Le Mans Classic July 6-8, Schloss Dyck Classic Days 3-5 August and Nürburgring (including driving it ourselves) during a TBD weekend in September. Who wants to join us?

‘My’ BX has been fixed, but more importantly the Fiat X1/9 had a bit of a crash... Hedges were involved. Many miles of great roads weren’t driven by our subgroup

The Fiat X1/9 overheated and needed its coolant bled. Luckily there was this little stream up in the mountains/hills.
