http://www.youtube.com/user/gregmporter http://www.youtube.com/user/vwdarrin http://www.youtube.com/user/swrnc (Pete) I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1968 Karmann Ghia. It was fully restored in 2005, and it's till looking great today. It's powered by the flat four, backed by a four speed manual trans. The paint is slick, the interior looks like new, and it runs out great. This is on sharp Karmann Ghia. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

1969 Fiat 500L
I thought you'd like a look at this nice little 1969 Fiat 500. This machine is powered by 500cc two cylinder engine, backed by a 4-Spd manual transmission. Options include: manual sunroof, hub caps, seat belts, and a vinyl interior. The nice thing about this car is it was recently a frame up restoration. The engine has been completely rebuilt, the clutch is new along with tires, brakes, paint, and the sunroof top. The exterior of the car is coated in a navy blue paint and the interior is a brilliant red. Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, the Fiat 500 was a cheap and practical town car. Measuring only 3 meters (~10 feet) long, and originally powered by an appropriately-sized 479cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term "small car" and is considered one of the first city cars. This is a great little piece of history. Thanks for taking a look!

VW Karmann Ghia 1974
From Wikipedia The Type 14 debuted at the October 1953 Paris Auto Show as a styling concept created for Ghia by Luigi Segre. In the early 1950s, Volkswagen was producing its economy car, the Type 1 (Beetle). With an increase in post-war standards of living, executives at Volkswagen proposed adding a halo car to its model range, contracting with German coachbuilder Karmann for its manufacture. Karmann in turn contracted the Italian firm Ghia, who adapted styling themes previously explored for Chrysler and Studebaker to a Beetle floorpan widened by 12 in (300 mm). In contrast to the Beetle's machine welded-body with bolt-on fenders, the Karmann Ghia's body panels were butt-welded, hand-shaped and smoothed with English pewter in a time-consuming process commensurate with higher-end manufacturers -- and resulting in the Karmann Ghia's higher price. The design and prototype were well received by Volkswagen executives, and in August 1955 the first Type 14 was manufactured in Osnabrück, Germany. Public reaction to the Type 14 exceeded expectations, with over 10,000 sold in the first year. VW Karmann Ghia Cabriolet The Type 14 was marketed as a practical and stylish 2+2 rather than as a true sports car. As they shared engines, the Type 14's engine displacement grew concurrently with the Type 1 (Beetle), ultimately arriving at a displacement of 1584 cc, producing 60 hp (45 kW). In August 1957, Volkswagen introduced a convertible version of the Karmann Ghia. Exterior changes in 1961 included wider and finned front grilles, taller and more rounded rear taillights and headlights relocated to a higher position -- with previous models and their lower headlight placement called lowlights. The Italian designer Sergio Sartorelli,[8] designer of Type 34, oversaw the various restylings of Type 14. In 1970, larger taillights integrated the reversing lights and larger wrap-around turn signals. Still larger and wider taillights increased side visibility and at the same time large square-section bumpers replaced the smooth round originals. For the USA model only, 1973 modifications mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) included energy-absorbing bumpers. A carpeted package shelf replaced the rear seat.





1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is temporary.





Kansas City to Daytona FL and back in a VW Karmann Ghia
2600 miles behind the wheel of my favorite Volkswagen. The detination was the Youtube Garage Gang Extravaganza in Daytona Florida. I was fortunate to meet and hang out with a lot of incredible Youtube Users in person. Thanks to everyone who helped make this event possible. Thanks to everyone who helped me, encouraged me and pushed me to complete my car. I could not have done it without you. This was a trip I'll remember until the day I die.

Karmann-Ghia anniversary 50 years 1955-2005
On the 14th of July 1955 the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was presented to the public. Members of the media and business were invited to the Kasino in Georgsmarienhütte, which is close to the Karmann factory in Osnabrück. 50 years on, Karmann Ghia friends around the world are invited to take part in these jubilee celebrations at the historical location, invited by the big Karmann Ghia clubs of Germany with the support of numerous sponsors and helpers. Georgsmarienhütte is situated a few kilometres south of Osnabrück in northern Germany. This is a short private movie of me as participant - it is not the official video off the anniversary.

1967 VW Type 3 Fastback: "Inge"
Portland, OR: excellent, nearly all-original 1967 VW Type 3 Fastback. Third owner, has been with me for nearly 10 years. No rust beyond superficial surface dings. Pan is 100% solid. Chrome is very good, though has some minor areas of pitting. Never any sort of major accident (front and rear are clean), though there is evidence of long-ago passenger side door repair (done poorly). Glass is perfect. Motor is 98% original and "all there." Original interior is excellent (no rips / tears; front seats could use new foams), all correct trim pieces are there, dash is perfect. Everything works but clock may need attention (regreasing, etc.) Runs, drives, shifts, brakes wonderfully. COMES WITH: original delivery papers and early records; original uber rare *RED TYPE 3 WOLFSBURG FLOORMAT* though it is very well used and has always had a hole at the heel near skinny pedal; red coco mats, a bit faded; *extra set of correct Fastback popout window seals* (sourced from a donor car; not NOS, but very good to excellent condition); original AM radio; NOS German door seals; NOS Type 3 muffler; seals for turn signals and original rear turn signal lenses. Also have small box of original parts. NEEDS: has a slow oil leak on passenger side valve cover; possible new battery (this one is new but has been driven so infrequently that it doesn't crank well unless jumped); could use carb tuning or rebuilds and general tune-up attention; needs new window rubber seals (front and rear); could use new seals for front and rear trunks (I have one for rear.) I'd also love to track down some original '67 Type 3 wheels and trim; these chromies look nice from 10 ft away but the chrome is pretty weak and starting to rust. This car is not a show car (yet). It needs to live with a real Type 3 geek, someone who will care for it and cherish it with the attention and love a rare survivor like this deserves. I know in 10 years I am going to be very regretful of this, but right now I do not have the means/time/skills to maintain this wonderful car like it should be. [ PS yes, I know I have a typo in one of the last titles... ]
