    Just bumping this back to the top! If you would like to attend with your Opel, please let me know by February 24th.


    The Spring AutoFair is a great show. It would take a minimum of 2 full days to see all the vendors inside and outside of the speedway.


    54 Car clubs will be there, including ours! So every kind of car, especially muscle cars, will be showing. When the weather is great, over 100,000 people walk through the gate throughout the four day show.


    If you have any questions, please contact me.

    The 2019 Opel Nationals will be held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on October 18th and 19th. Saturday, the 19th will be the main show day!

    There is a $10 registration fee which you will need to pay to me and I will then turn these fees over to the speedway. They use these fees to get a car count and to help pay for the trophies which are really sweet awards. The $10 will get you into the speedway AutoFair on Friday and Saturday. No other costs.

    You will receive a windshield sticker for your Opel and two people passes to get into the show Friday and Saturday.

    You can PayPal me the $10 to Ooooner@aol.com (O's,n to zeros in Ooooner). Be sure to send to "Friends" on PayPal or PayPal will take a fee out of the $10. Or you can just mail me a check to: Roy Bell, 9006 Concord, North Carolina 28027.

    The registration fee must be paid by September 14th.

    If you are to be included in the Showcase Pavilion, you do not need to pay the registration fee.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. My e-mail is either CarolinaOpelClub@aol.com or Ooooner@aol.com. You may also call me at either 704-782-1866 (H) or 704-661-3666 (C).

    Hope you can make it!

    Charlotte AutoFair - The Largest Collector Vehicle Event in the Southeast!

    Update: We now have 15 Opel's coming plus the 9 in the Showcase Pavilion. That's 24 Opel's so far! Be sure to get registered! :thumbup:

    The 2019 Opel Nationals will be held Saturday, October 19th in conjunction with the Fall AutoFair at the famed Charlotte Motor Speedway.


    A lot of pre planning has been going on behind the scenes as we want to make sure this will be one of the best Opel National Events you could attend!


    The hotel has been set up with 25 rooms blocked off for the Opel Club. The hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn in Concord, North Carolina. The hotel is less than a mile from the event at the Speedway. Cost per night is $139, which is a reduced rate from $179. $40 savings. You can either call the hotel directly at (704) 979-2900 or go to the Opel Club reservation link: https://hiltongardeninn.hilton…/index.jhtml?WT.mc_id=POG If you call, be sure you tell them that you want to reserve a room for the Opel Car Club. Rooms have been set aside for October 18th and 19th with check out on Sunday, the 20th. The hotel has a fantastic breakfast that is $9.95 for all you can eat.

    The last day you can get the reduced rate at the hotel is September 18th. After that, the rooms will be released back to the general public at their normal rates.


    The parking lot is very large with plenty of parking for trailers. I was told that we really needed a larger parking lot to accommodate trailers as the other hotel parking lot was really too small. I agreed.


    There will be an auction on Saturday evening with proceeds after expenses going to The Make-A-Wish Foundation.


    We are also planning on a small band to play Saturday evening. These guys are really good and you will enjoy their music.


    I’m still working with the AutoFair people on where we will be located inside the speedway. I’m thinking we will be placed in a prime location for maximum exposure.


    Any questions? Please ask. Call me at (704) 661-3666 or e-mail at CarolinaOpelClub@aol.com or Ooooner@aol.com (O’s, not zeros in Ooooner). Or simply post a question here...

    A link to the web site for the AutoFair: Charlotte AutoFair - The Largest Collector Vehicle Event in the Southeast!

    This is also the site for the 2019 Opel Nationals in the Fall, October 17th thru the 19th. Show days will be October 18th and 19th. More information on the Opel Nationals will be posted in another thread soon. :thumbup:

    Im at the point where I just want to enjoy the Opel site and not worry about people's petty feelings getting hurt or weird people lurking around. I am going to start using this site more and more and use OpelGTdotcom for research only. I've been pondering about moving over here but now it's official! :D

    Twice each year the Charlotte AutoFair is home to thousands of collector car enthusiasts who are buying and selling exceptional vehicles, restoration parts and supplies and those unique items found only at this event.
