(Pics) Brazilian Opalas
Picked up these two Brazilian Chevrolet Opalas, the red one with white roof a '71 Gran Luxo and the orange a '74 4-cylinder SS. Not sure of the maker, but the distributor on the box says "Editora Salvat do Brasil" so make of that what you will.

But they're pretty nice models, even if the Luxo has some fit issues. Also the steering wheels are oddly angled to almost touch the windscreen (this is the same for both, so this is just the way it is). Regardless, they were super cheap and I do like the styling for what are otherwise quite unassuming cars. Especially the graphics on the SS are much to my liking. Cool little pieces, of which there still seem to be at least a four-door sedan and two-door station wagon available too.
