Saturday afternoon drive in my 1962 Karmann Ghia.





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.

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.

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.





Very Original 1960 VW Karmann Ghia for Sale
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1960-vw-karmann-ghia/ to see this fantastic original 1960 VW Karmann Ghia for sale by Sunset Classics in Minneapolis MN. 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 yourself.
