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.

1973 Karmann Ghia Driving Lesson
Be supportive guys, she's picked up driving this thing pretty quickly! After about a week of working the various electrical bugs out of this Ghia and tuning and tigthtening numerous components to spec, LaLaLauren311 was ready to take her first drive. She is unable to drive a manual transmission car (although she did pass motorcycle training on a manual-shifted motorcycle) so she's received a quick lesson in how to operate the car, and the rest went from there. History: LaLaLauren311 has been crazy-wanting a Karmann Ghia for a while. We've been searching high and low and not finding anything that fit our needs of a decent running car at a super low cheap price. Then suddenly I got a call one afternoon that a friend found a 1973 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia outside of Walmart. The fellow that owned it didn't much like working on it, and when it didn't start up one day he chose to rather offload it than fix it. After acquiring the car, I towed it home behind my Nissan 350Z and very quietly and secretly parked it in the driveway and set up my camcorder to capture LaLaLauren311's reaction.

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 - http://www.bbcshop.com/search?q=top+gear+worst+car+dvd&cm_mmc=bbc+shop-_-TG -_-youtube-_-Tg+worst+car+dvd 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 biggest loser...
