Two Quick Ones For A Monday...

1991 Renault Alpine GTA - Renault came very, very close to officially importing these cars to the US. US spec models were built and sent to the automotive press for review.

Unfortunately, sales of Renault's US bread & butter cars, the Allaince and Encore, started to slip and Renault had to face the fact that a public that was reluctant to buy $5,000.00 Renaults, certainly weren't going to buy $30,000.00 Renaults.

This car is in Canada. It has 61,000km on it. Being a 1991 it won't be eligable to enter the US for another 4 years. But, as we all know, where there's a will there's a way. (If you're gutsy enough.)

1968 Opel Kadett L - As the seller asks in his ad, when was the last time you saw one of these cars?

The Kadett L was positioned between the notchback and the fastback. It was a bit better equipped than the notchback, but not as sporty as the fastback.

Not as sporty is something of an understatement. The engine is a 1.1 liter 4, which put out 55 HP. The interior is functional and not much else.

I like Opels. My first car was an Opel. Personally, I'd hold out for a Kadett Rallye or, better yet, a Manta Rallye. But, if you're an Opel collector and want something unusual, this car might be worth checking out.
