Opel Admiral and Diplomat
« on: March 07, 2013, 09:43:59 PM »
Hi, guys, this`s pre-1970s Admiral and Diplomat.

I understand there was one of these in the North Island near Tauranga at one stage, which the owner was planning to go off banger racing ..... so it may well be wrecked by now   ???

I have not seen one in NZ but a few were sold UK new - One turned up in Autocar magazine in 1970 owned by a local GM dealer ..Later In Your Classetsic in 1991 a similar car was profiled but I would say most big cars in the UK have since been Banger Raced

I heard of an ulta rare Ambulance version been banger raced in Holland!
In the Banger Racing scene there are prizes to find the rarelist and last car in the UK - Totally Frightful - I for one am hoping that with increasing Health and Safety requirements that the scene will be no more!
