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.

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.

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.
