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.

Wulf Henrichs is a passionate collector of classic cars. He decided to take a risky venture and bought an old classic over the internet for 17,000 euros without even taking a look at it. It's a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and spent most of its life in the United States. Read more: http://www.dw.de/program/drive-it/s-9690-9798





Vintage! The VW Beetle | drive it
It sounds a bit strange for a popular family car like the Volkswagen Beetle to be outfitted with a roll bar, bucket seats and a racing harness. But the first souped-up VW Bugs hit the roads in Germany as early as 1951.Drive it! got a chance to take a specially-tuned, vintage rallye Beetle out for a spin - and discovered that roll bars, bucket seats and racing seat belts are more than welcome in a Bug that can do 170 km/h.





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! Porsche 911S | drive it!
The 911 is THE iconic sports car and the raspy note from its air-cooled engine became its trademark.Two years after the 911 hit the showrooms, Porsche came out with the even more powerful 911S. Under the hood was a 2 liter motor pumping out 160 PS. It was enough to take car and driver to a top speed of over 220 km/h. The original design from 1963 was the work of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who was just 28 years old at the time. The car's timeless silhouette still catches the eye today and provides the blueprint for all 911s that followed.

VW Karmann Ghia - FIRST DRIVE!!!!
OH YEAH!!! After 18 years of cutting, grinding, welding, filling, sanding, sanding, sanding, priming, painting, buffing, fixing, wiring, trimming, sweating, cussing, smiling, crying, talking, screaming, farting and everything else it takes to dismantle and restore a car, the Karmann Ghia moved again for the first under it's own power. The feeling? AWESOME!!!





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.
