Karmann-Ghia anniversary 50 years 1955-2005
On the 14th of July 1955 the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was presented to the
public. Members of the media and business were invited to the Kasino in
Georgsmarienhütte, which is close to the Karmann factory in Osnabrück.
50 years on, Karmann Ghia friends around the world are invited to take part
in these jubilee celebrations at the historical location, invited by the
big Karmann Ghia clubs of Germany with the support of numerous sponsors and
helpers. Georgsmarienhütte is situated a few kilometres south of
Osnabrück in northern Germany.
This is a short private movie of me as participant - it is not the official
video off the anniversary.

2008 BARRETT JACKSON CAR AUCTION
the 2008 Barrett-Jackson auto auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona,
featuring some of my favorites;Imapala's (all years),Bel-Aire, Camaro, Volkswagen Karmann Ghia,
Bugs, Beetles and Bus, Vintage Porche, etc. By the way, I had to throw in
my own 1968 VW Karmann Ghia in Regatta Blue with a pearl, whitewalls and
just plain badass Chingoness. Orale!
My 1974 Karmann Ghia
This is my 1974 Ghia. It was a hunk of junk when I first purchased it. Five
years later after taking it compleatly apart it's now my favorite toy. 87mm
pistons too. The gauges on the dash are VDO, but I purchased three "BUS"
fuel gauges from junkyards. I removed the chromes rings and installed them
on the new VDOs. Now they match the originals on the dash.
Starting The Phantom Ghia prostock VW
First fire up after engine assembly. The Phantom Ghia is a 9 second 1/4
mile, 1958 VW Karmann Ghia door slammer. Built by Robert Cook or Cooker's
V-Dubs in Clear Spring, Maryland and owned and driven by Rob Schultz.
****UPDATE**** this car now resides in France under new ownership.
1968 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia STK 1308
Volkswagen made this sweet 1968 Karmann Ghia for fun road trips. The 1.6L
aircooled 4 cylinder motor and 4 speed manual transmission. A custom
burgundy paint job with old school pinstripe will make this car stand out
in any parking lot. A tan interior is the perfect accent color for this
car. The AM/FM/CD radio lets the tunes play while you cruise down the road.
