1983 Opel RekordReview
Upper Class Rwd Opel From Early 80's — A car I bought to be used as a winter car, in which use it serves perfectly. The chassis has been rebuild with stiffer springs and polyurethane bushings which improved it significantly.
Pros: RWD, low noise levels, comfortable to drive long journeys, warm in winter usage
Cons: Rusts too easily, steering could be faster and more precise, stock chassis too soft and comfortable
