Anti Rattle pt.2
Here's a few in a row, and a shot of a terrible tool. It's a straightened
out hubcap puller & it's just a hair too soft. Starts to get pretty weak
by the end.
Check out Airhead Parts and KGPR on Discovery UK! We're on with Mike
Brewer's "Wheeler Dealers", providing parts for their refresh of a 1969
Karmann Ghia Cabriolet. KGPR owner, Scott Dempster's own 1969 Cabrio is
featured in the episode set to air in late October. As soon as the date
and time is confirmed, I'll post it here. Also be on the lookout for a
HotVWs article on the filming of the episode.
In the meantime, here's a video of Mike taking the Airhead Parts in-house
built 2332 FI turbo Super Beetle for a
spin, after Scott asks him a little bit about his background. *Spoiler
alert* He likes it ;)

Karmann Ghia Windshield Installation - Part 1
Part one of how to install a windshield on a Karmann Ghia. I wanted to use
new glass for this, but the powers that be, could not supply the correct
one. I'll be using the old glass for now and I may change it out when a
clear replacement becomes available.
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.
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.
