Friday night at racelegal.com drag racing a 1973 volkswagen karmann ghia with a 2352 and a 1966 volkswagen beetle with a 2187 air cooled engine.
The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a 2+2 coupe and convertible marketed from 1955 to 1974 by Volkswagen -- combining the chassis and mechanicals of the Type 1 (Beetle), styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia, and hand-built bodywork by German coach-builder Karmann.
The Karmann Ghia was internally designated the Type 14. Volkswagen later introduced a variant in 1961, the Type 34 -- featuring angular bodywork and based on the newly introduced Type 3 platform.
Production doubled soon after its introduction, becoming the car most-imported into the U.S. American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague selected the Type 14 for his list of the world's most beautifully designed products.
Over 445,000 Karmann Ghias were produced in Germany over the car's production life -- not including the Type 34 variant. Karmann Brazil produced 41,600 cars locally for South America between 1962 and 1975.
The Volkswagen Beetle, officially called the Volkswagen Type 1 (or informally the Volkswagen Bug), is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. With over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single design platform anywhere in the world.
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.

The HCM Special V12 We go for a ride in a Teague designed Marmon
In 1932 Howard C. Marmon tried to save is automobile company with this car.
It wasn't enough. This car was part of the Schoenthaler collection when we
took this ride.
This car was designed by Walter Dorwin Teague. When the Schoenthalers
brought this car to Pebble Beach they invited Mr. Teague. It was the first
time he had seen the car in 70 years.
1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my
wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I
know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was
installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is
