  • How not to Drive your Carlton GSi

    Looking through some of my old photos found this, Opel Omega 3000 or the Carlton GSi to us. Old Opel promo photo from 1988 & one for Keif .

    Always thought they were a great car, very underated & top spec. Does anyone in the club still own one?

        Had a trawl through the mighty 'Bay and only found one that had been scavenged for parts to save a Lotus. It was a low mileage minter going by the vendors description, these are probably rarer than the Lotus now, which is a shame. I remember them being launched with the digi-dash, always had a soft spot for the 24v in red, manual with a slipper.....off for a look on autotrader and piston heads now

          Quite few seem to have an LSD fitted, was it a reasonably priced option? Ive notice a serious drop in the amount of them for sale over the past year. I suspect quite a few are going ludicrously sideways to their iminent death in Ireland. I was over in belfast a couple of weeks ago and i did see a couple in service over there!

          I know theres a silver one thats not too shabby in a barn up here and a black one for spares but the guy wont sell them and i know he wont ever do anything with them either. Great cars!
