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
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
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.

Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1960-vw-karmann-ghia/ to see this
fantastic original 1960 VW Karmann Ghia for sale by Sunset Classics in
This unique example has only 20k original miles and it still retains the
original factory tires from 1960! The interior is original with the
exception of new carpet, and the little Karmann Ghia still sports its
original 36 hpr engine.
Stepping into this Karmann Ghia is like stepping into a time machine. The
ivory knobs and the ornamental chrome trim is straight out of the '50s (and
1960 of course). The "whirr" of the engine paints a smile on anyone's face
who is lucky enough to hear it. You can be proud driving this beauty no
matter what your destination.
The paint is not original but the paprika red and white color scheme is.
The floor pans look to be original and they are in good shape. At some
point there was some body work done to the panels just before the rear
wheels. The trunk is nice and the rear quarter panels look to be original
and they are in great shape. As you can see from the photos there is some
rust around the headlights and in front of the passenger side rear wheel.
But the paint and car look great overall, and these areas could be touched
up if desired.
The story history of this cute little car is both interesting and
extraordinary - check out the full story at the link above as well as
detailed photo gallery and more video. Then give me a call to claim her for
Thanks for watching - please drop a big 'ol thumbs up and a Like on this

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.
