With the very best intentions - owning a Classic Opel

It occurred to me a few weeks ago that The Classic Opel Spares Blog is a fantastic activity level monitor of Opel and Vauxhall restorers and old car enthusiasts.
For much of the year, at least according to my blog stats, visitors are few and far between and the e-mail enquiries about spares come through at a trickle, but twice a year there are two distinct activity hot spots.

The first arrives at the very start of the year, usually immediately after the New Years Day hangover must have worn off. I can but assume these enquiries are driven either by a nagging partner, or a New Year's resolution to finally getting that old heap back on the road.
The second peak comes later, around Easter, as longer days and warmer temperatures make working on the car less of a chore and more of a pleasure.
Of course the successful amateur car restorers, get the majority of the unpleasant jobs done working through the long nights of those cold winter months. I for one always failed at such good intentions and ended up wasting pleasant summer days under the car instead of being out and enjoying driving it.

So for those of you who are thinking about getting started on jobs on your old Opel and need some hard to find Classic Opel Spares, hurry up, the first classic car shows are in just a few short weeks time and the Classic Opel Spares Blog is brimming with recently unearthed Opel spares.
