The history of the ALT-OPEL club goes back
to the time when the term "Old-timer" referred exclusively to pre-war automobiles.
The inspiration to also include cars from the
50s and 60s lead to the foundation of the
ALT-OPEL club in 1972.
The common declared aim was to continue the maintenance, care and functional operation of the entire range of vehicles produced by the company Adam Opel ltd as a sort of historical documentation. This is still the club's aim today.
Since then the ALT-OPEL club has continuously developed and now has more than 2.000 members made up of twenty five different nationalities, and people of all ages and
walks of life.
