I remember this car.
Dad traded the Opel in for the Subaru Van.
It seemed like it was more tall than it was wide. It was so narrow, as a 10 year old, my arm span allowed me to grab the handles on either side of the inside of the van and shake like crazy.
I dont think it passed american specs so we couldn't bring it back stateside. The Subaru was bought back by the Dealer that we got it from, so dad broke even on that.
