a 1.2liter 4 cylinder OHV engine with a 2 barrel carburettor. 60bhp when it was new. the 1.2 liter is a bit short of 70 cubic inches as far as i can figure.

Kinda looks like a 2002... I've always loved those small sporty cars of that style from the 70's...

Re: Just a few snaps of a friends car

I knew absolutely nothing about Opel Kadetts until you started posting on this forum. Now I've totally fallen in love with the car! :D

I absolutley love BMW 2002s and Datsun 510s, so this car fits perfectly within my small car fetish. The flat satin black paint job looks amazing too. Great car! :mrgreen:

so you prefer doing it on tarmac? :)

oh well.. my body's kadett only cost him about 1,000$ US, so fuck the bearings..

besides.. we're both mechanics so fixing it is not a big problem.
