1962 Opel KadettReview
Perky, Charismatic Little Car — I bought this car in Berlin, shipped it to America, and it was a charm. I loved this car from the beginning and named it Oscar. When I saw Top Gear's Africa special, and Hammond's Opel named Oliver, I finally felt the Kadett's only lover wasn't me.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Charming, charismatic, cheap, GM
Cons: Faulty electrics and brakes
