vintage! The Karmann Ghia | drive it!
It is a heartbreaker of a car, a real dreamboat and possibly the most
beautiful VW ever built. However the sporty coupe does have one small
drawback. Its design is far racier than its driving performance.The first
Ghias were fitted wtih 30 horsepower VW Beetle
engines, while later models got 50 horsepower motors. Still,
when the Karmann Ghia was introduced back in 1955 this was more than enough
to keep vehicles like the Goggomobil and BMW Isetta in check. During it's
close to 20 years in production, some 443,000 Ghias were sold. Today this
classic car has nothing left to prove. We take a relaxing drive in this
stylish milestone of automotive history.
1971 Karmann Ghia Walk Around and Drive
Hey VW fans let's take a late fall drive in my new '71 Karmann Ghia
Convertible. This is a beauty found recently after 24 years stored in a
barn - she was taken good care of though the owner would take her out each
summer to clean her up. Take a look at the full description and photo and
video shoot I took of this classic 1971 Karmann Ghia Convertible here:
Give me a call if you want to take her home. Happy V-dubbin

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

1956 VW Karmann Ghia in upper Michigan
Back in 1993 I visited my my friends in the upper peninsula of Michigan.
We were both into old Karmann Ghia's, and my friend knew where a 1956 model
was. Unfortunately it was nothing but a pile of scrap. The car looked to
be one of the first 3000 made, as the front bonnet brackets were stamped
metal, instead of the square tubes they became later.
They made less than 5000 examples in 1956, the first model year. Sadly,
95% of them are in this condition, or don't exist any longer in any form.
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.
The Worst Car In the History Of The World - Top Gear - BBC
Top Gear: The Worst Car in the History of the World will be released on
DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download on Monday 19th November 2012
Get your copy here -
Jeremy Clarkson and James May will present their opinions on The Worst Car
in the History of the World in a brand new, all exclusive Top Gear DVD.
Jeremy and James travel to the North of England to name and shame the most
rubbish cars in the entire WORLD. It's a labour-intensive affair, filled
with heated debates, giant cranes, James being locked in his own car boot
and...Jeremy being tied to a tree.
But don't be fooled, it's not all about terrible cars -- to appreciate the
stinkers you have to revel in some good ones too -- like the 4.5 litre
Ferrari 458 Spider, Toyota's GT86 and the £340,000 Lexus LFA running
shoulders with a Mercedes SLS AMG.
As they are up North, the boys invite The Stig's Yorkshire cousin to be a
guest driver. Putting his whippet to one side he throws the BMW M5 round a
gymkhana course before testing out a couple of Transatlantic challengers
with Jeremy and James. Things, you won't be surprised to hear, don't go
according to plan.
The debate about The Worst Car in the History of the World continues while
the boys play a few rounds of golf. But that doesn't go according to plan
either. They even put their own cars -- past and present --into the
reckoning. That ends badly too.
The rest of the time up North is spent arguing over the great and the awful
from Peugeot, Ford, Mahindra, FSO, Alfa Romeo, Rolls Royce, Porsche,
Citroen, Saab and many more.
There's also a special surprise fate in store for the car picked as the
