Did You Know?


Opel is one of the most famous examples of 15 minutes of fame in history. During The 46th Annual Academy Awards (1974), just as David Niven was about to introduce Elizabeth Taylor, a naked Opel bolted across the stage. He was captured by security but instead of being arrested he was taken before the press. See more »
