Tidy looking example. We call Omega-A's "Carltons" in the UK :)

I like that ALOT!
I still have two Omega A's - (Vauxhall Carlton in the UK) and would never sell on my saloon, although the estate is for sale.

You should pop into Total Carlton too - it's all Omega A's there.

Tell em I sent you!   ;D

Theres some brave restoration been done on that site . Nice one  ;)

Yes, my engine block is pink   

Yes interesting colour that , hope you get the crank fixed soon  :)

Hehe, i am not gay or something, i was just beeing crazy when i was choosing the engine color :) It turned out to be very cool! :D

My crank wil be fiksed soon, waiting for some parts. Thank you.

 ;D

I had a black 2.0 CDX carlton , replacing a radiator was the only thing that was required in the 6 yrs i owned it ...sold with 120000 miles . Rear arch rot was beginning to show but could have been chopped out and made good . Still one or two about for sale here but becoming very rare  :y

It starts to rust in the arch on my car too, so i am considering changing them with some round ones ;P

Considered that on mine but then along came the 3.0 manual omega  ::) plus the diff was making some weird noises on the carlton ...My carlton was metalic black , BBS alloys and full leather with all the electrical gizmos .. Dam omega got the better of me  ;D


Yours looks in great condition , nice colour too  :y

When you guys say ''Omega'' do you mean Omega B and not omega A (vauxhall carlton)?

did you have the LSD diff? I have managed to get a original 2.0 LSD differential to mine now, and it costed enough! :P (those diffs are very rare in norway)

Metallic black i a nice color, and so much electric must be good :) I don't have power steering, electric windows, heated rear seats, abs and so on...

BUT i have a nice interior, i took the interior from my omega B parts car. That came out nice.

The superawesone original seats... The owner before me was a smoker.


The Omega B interior was bolt on.





Yes, the condition is good to be a norwegian Omega, with all the salted winder roads and so on...

I was lucky, the owner before me, He had it since '97 and it had been parked i his garage when he was not driving. But then, in 2008 he took the numer plates off and he bought a new car. After that i just stood in his garage till late 2011, when he randomly contacted me. I did not know him, but he heard that i had some Omegas and loved Opel!

He did not want to sell the car to some idiot to ruin it, so he GAVE it to me for free! I was superhappy and could not refuse that deal.

Short after that i got the car through ''Eu-kontroll'' or MOT as you call it :)

And then the turbo ;)

I will never ever sell this car, i will keep it running as long as possible.
