The Other Sport Wagon: 1975 Opel 1900 Sport Wagon

If you wandered into a Buick dealer in the early 1970s you would be surrounded by the kind of land barges you’d expect from Buick.  Big chrome, big bumpers, and big V8 is what you expected from GM’s performo-luxury brand which was not as luxurious as Cadillac, but not as performancy as Pontiac…but certainly better appointed than Chevrolet.  Anyway, if you wandered off into the corner of that Buick dealer, you might be surprised to stumble over a little compact thing with European construction and an Opel badge…because you could buy a Buick Sport Wagon for hauling your wife and 9 kids or you could buy an Opel Sport Wagon for you, your wife, and few small Pomeranian puppies.
