    Default opel blitz

    having a slight exchange of words with a w**ker at work, who knows everything about cars and has the panache and self confidence to drive a rover45.
    anyway, i near choked when he declared that Nissan would probably sue Opel over the "blatant use of the Z" on the front of the new insignia grille,
    cos according to him Datsun Z Cars have been around longer than Opel, so far i think the earliest Zcar was 1972, but when exactly did Opel adopt the blitz as their logo?

    Apart from the dates, the Opel Blitz looks nothing like the Z on the nissan fairlady etc...

    If your 'mate' opened his eyes and looked closer - he'd realise that the 'Z' on the front of an Opel is actually a lightning bolt!

    Have you tried slapping him??



    NB.The above is a joke. The author of it cannot be held responsible for any legal implications that the 'slapper' may be subjected to as a result of the basic desire to slap some idiot who deperately deserves it.
    Any injury received as a result of slapping an idiot is the responsibilty of the 'slappee'
