Did not make teh tour -- But HI!

Welcome to C&G Rick... you may know me as "GMguy74" over at skyroadster.com, but here I go as "GMTruckGuy74". Even though you missed out on the wonderful Wilmington tour, you & FlyBrian (Brian DeGreggors) still lucked out with the Saturn Advocacy Brand Board trip!

If Rick Buda is there, tell him I said hi. :wavey:

Fu*k... that's what I need to buy for a fuel economy champ. an early 80s Chevette, perhaps I can find a M22 4-speed equiped diesel, and I'd onnly ever need metric tools to work on the little sucker.

the production Opels out in the shipping lots do not have those side-marker lights. I thought it was mandatory in Europe?

I always thought the side mounted turn signals (not markers that illuminate with the headlamps) were mandatory in Europe, but they may be a convention and not an obligation. I really don't know...

The taillights are different on the Opel/Daewoo from the Saturn. The best way I can describe it is that the top 1/3 is all silver (not sure if it lights up or not), whereas the SKY's is all red and lights up. There is a rear foglight on the Opel/Daewoo, it's incorporated in the rear backup light (split in half, white & red).

The silver part is where the amber turn signals are.

Isn't the EU standard that the rear turn signal be amber colored too? :scratchchin:

Yep, and front parking lamps have to be white, not amber like some US cars have (Buick Lucerne, for example). Rear fog lamps are mandatory as well.

Thanks for the reply!
Euro side markers have to be amber, so most american cars don't have them. Euro-spec STS and Corvette are the only exceptions I remember seeing with 4 amber side markers... What I find strabge is the lack of a side-mounted turn signal, as I believe they are mandatory around here... Maybe those were pilot cars and the ones actually being exported will have them.

The fender-mounted side marker lights are not included on the Opel GT or Daewoo G2x... I was going to ask why, but I overheard an engineer say to another Kappa owner that it has to do with European regulations (about the Opel GT). I wanted to ask more about it, but got sidetracked and after taking the pics of the cars in the lot, remembered but it was too late!
