Pieter Visser has a surplus of passion for the German Opel, not for a few years, but for his entire life. How this came about is easy to explain. His father was completely preoccupied with Opel from his first Manta 16 S, which he bought at the dealer for 70 Dutch guilders in the 10.000s. After that, many would follow. The Opel experience has been taken over by Pieter with major consequences. Just look at his beautiful 1985 Opel Monza Coupé.

You can see that in his garage, which was built especially for his youngtimers. The wall plates of all types of Opel, his exclusive collection of more than 500 Opel models, where you can read the entire history. But also the company of friends, all with a classic Opel, who share his hobby by taking joint rides along the Frisian coast.
Opel Monza Coupe
Pieter now has his snow white Opel Monza Coupe owned for four years. This enthusiast's car is special in that it is completely original and unrestored. Pieter knows the previous owner and knows that the car has been pampered like a baby and shows the correct mileage with 100.000.
Opel in the top segment
The Monza was in the exclusive segment. No large production numbers, which means that the Opel Monza Coupe is now becoming quite rare. His appreciation for the Opel Monza is even more apparent because, in addition to the beautiful coupé from 1985, an earlier type is shining in the garage. This is the A Monza from 1978 with beautiful chrome bumpers. He has owned that car for ten years.
Pieter: “I am attached to my Monzas. It is a very important part of my leisure activities. They are driven on a limited basis. For me, the timeless radiates from it. I'm already enjoying the sight in my garage, what a play of lines! In fact, it also connects a generation, from my father to me, and no other car has a stronger effect on us than the Opel Monza.” What do you think of Pieters Opel Monzas?
