Out & About – 1966 Opel Diplomat Coupe

A close friend of Bridge Classic Cars, Stephen Norman, recently spent a weekend away with this stunning 1966 Opel Diplomat V8 Coupe which forms part of the Classic Opel Collection in Germany.

The 1960s V8 coupe was Stephen’s choice of cruiser for a long weekend away as part of his retirement from the company after 45 years.

Throughout the weekend, the classic Opel wracked up about 300 miles to add to its all original and unrestored 95,000km. Stephen reports the car performed faultlessly and was the object of much fanfare and admiration.

Always lovely to see a classic getting out and being used.
