hi this is vladimir kamenov.
greetings from Bulgaria.
i have 3 opels: 2 rekord olympia p1 and 1 opel 1200.
i liked your site a lot!!!!!!!!!
...and i'd like to contribute to its interesting contents by giving you this
scanned pdf of an original book that came with one of the car.
i don't understand deutch so i think it is the original factory book of the car.
however i hope this would be interesting to other opel enthusiasts.
i hope also others that have original thing as workshop manuals to share
them with others. :)
p.s. I also send you a current picture of two of my opels and my father with them

 ( he started that passion for opels in me)

Hello again my friend from Bulgaria :)

The summer is over and so is my restoration for this year. I managed to do a
lot of work on my opel rekord car and i wish to to show you a current picture of it.

About car brochures in bulgarian:
unfortunately you know that we were in comunist block regime and so
everything western was strictly forbidden here.
only russinan cars were sold in governmet shops only :(
So the western cars in bulgaria were smuggled from europe by truck drivers and sailors.
that's why we never had brochures of cars in bulgaria. otherwise i will try to find any old pictures
of opels that people may have taken with their cars during old times :)
bye and keep up the good job you're making with the opel site
