Great story Rick. And yes, I remember that offramp. It was fun in my Mustang too!

I actually bought a local one last year for grins and to flip.  Had fun with it for awhile and made
some money on eBay.  Low miles with a 4-spd.
 
A guy in Alabama bought it and he had it shipped via open carrier all the way from Seattle.

Actually, my Opel GT was one of my favorite cars as a teen.
Although the valve cover is big... and the cam IS in the head, it is not an overhead cam.
Grossly under-powered.   Flip over headlights were a pain to keep working, suspension was acceptable at best.

But with a good hard set of Polyglass tires along with the torque tube on the rear end, handling was super predictable and consistent.   The freeway off-ramp nearest my house (Keegan, HWY-50 east at Bradshaw) was a constant uphill gradient (1.5%) and not 90 a degree left hander...  more like 105.   You could come off the freeway and never slow down, at the turn pop down a gear, tap the brakes flick left then full oversteer right into the most repeatable 4 wheel drifts... every time.   OK, the other side of the Freeway was where the Ice Rink was where I worked and played Hockey... I was spending a couple hours a day on a Zamboni so 4 wheel drifts were every day life at that point.  I'm sure it helped.

I had a CHP follow me all the way to my folk's driveway one night...  told me that he would love to write me a ticket but just couldn't.  I never exceeded the speed limit and although he said it looked like I was almost completely sideways, the little car never left it's lane...   Looked spectacular!! I know you didn't mean to do it <wink>  Don't do it again.

Before I left for Canoe U. I probably did it another 100 times.

Ha! That’s exactly what I think with all the random piercings – especially noses. You’ve expressed your individuality, just like everyone else your age…
