1971 Opel GT for summer

Nothing too fancy here just a fun summer car. This particular one struck my interest as the seller lists that he has owned 32 Opel GTs and this one is one of the best. The car has 114,000 miles and price currently sits at $6,000 with the reserve not met. This German mini corvette looks like an honest daily driver example.
