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.
compare it! Mercedes Benz Zetros - Fiat Panda Cross: David versus Goliath | drive it!
It's not for the faint hearted. Our two cars will be going head to head in
a disused quarry with treacherous water ditches, near vertical inclines and
the toughest terrain imaginable.It's big versus small, with the largest
production off-roader taking on the smallest. The Mercedes Zetros 6x6
versus the plucky Fiat Panda 4x4. 10.5 tons against 1 ton. 7.2 liters and
240 kW versus 1.3 liters and 51kW. Does the Panda stand a chance or will
the giant Zetros make light work of it?
Vintage - the Honda S800 | drive it!
Our car tester Christoph Bauer takes a trip back in time with a real
automotive milestone from the 1960s: the Honda S800. Its elegant contours
are reminiscent of classic British roadsters like the Triumph TR 4 or MG B.
But the ride factor in this baby is more medieval than modern, thanks in
particular to the solid axle at the back.That said: even by today's
standards, a ride in the Honda S800 really is something special. No other
car could coax so much power and fun out of a 0.8-liter capacity.

vintage: The 1968 BMW 1600 ti touring sedan | drive it
The souped-up 1.6-liter, 4-cylinder engine produces 150 horsepower. Not a great deal
by today's standards, but out on the track this 42-year-old car shows its
special qualities.A tight suspension, excellent balance and precise
steering keep the rear-wheel drive steady through the tightest turns. drive
it! tests whether the car can live up to modern standards.

2014 Subaru Forester off-road snowy Misadventure & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2014 Subaru Forester 2.0XT is bigger and
more fuel efficient than the previous model...but is as off-road worthy? We
decided to find out in one of the worst Colorado snow storms of the year by
taking it up our usual test trail. Of course the turbo-charged Forester 2.0XT that we tested came
with all-season 18 inch tires and a new CVT transmission. In our real
world testing we review the car as it is provided to us by the
manufacturer. We also drive the car the way most buyers will and that means
with the stock tires. So how did the new 2014 Subaru Forester do in the
snowy Colorado Rockies? Watch this video to find out.

I finally got around to shooting some real-time video as the cars sits
today. As you can tell there are many videos between the youtube footage
and now, I will try and hasten their delivery. The white floppy things late
in the vid are a couple of Tie-Wraps subbing for windshield wipers. Going
fast sure creates a lot of wind noise.
Driving my Karmann Ghia
The 1956 Karmann Ghia I own does get driven from time to time. I have
friends who claim I 'never' drive it. This video shows that isn't the
