It been a long time since the last video on the install (September 2012 to
be exact). The top arrived from TMI by way of HOG and this video shows the
installation of the canvas top onto the headlined and padded frame. I will
have one more video in this series showing the finishing touches and adding
all the necessary seals around the windows.

is the same for VW Ghia Coupes and Cabriolets, as the doors are identical.
The only difference is the shape of the glass...

2014 Mercedes E550 Cabriolet Test Drive & Luxury Convertible Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/e-class/2014/?id=32972 With the
Mercedes E550 Cabriolet you get impeccable German engineering and super
high quality materials. This is a fantastic touring machine in its own
rite. A base E-Series car starts at $51,400 and the E550 Cabriolet tested
here starts at $67,300 but the price can balloon with additional added
packages and options.
The engine powering the E550 Convertible is a twin-turbo 4.7 liter V-8 that makes 402 horsepower and 443 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy figures are 17 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the
highway. The great thing about this engine is a large torque curve. All
that power and torque are necessary though as the E550 Cabriolet weighs a
hefty 4048 lbs.
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet has a couple of great features to
improve comfort of the passenger. The first is a system called AIRCAP which
is essentially a spoiler on top of the windshield and a deflector behind
the rear seats. These 2 automated parts work together to push the air flow
p and over the passenger compartment minimizing wind. The second feature is
the AIRSCRAF system which is a set of vents integrated into the head rests.
These vents produce warm or cool air for the drive and front passenger.
The Mercedes E550 Cabriolet has a split personality. You can drive the car
in ECO or Comfort mode which makes the car loft around on the roads. But
switch the dial to Sport and the entire car wakes up and performs

Recently we came across this beautiful Volkswagen Karmann Ghia 1600
Cabriolet 1971 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car
dealer is one of the largest in the world. We took the car for a little

The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a sports car marketed in both 2+2 coupe
(1955--1974) and convertible (1957--1974) body styles by Volkswagen. The
Karmann Ghia combined the chassis and mechanicals of the Type 1 (Beetle)
with styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia and hand-built
bodywork by the 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
included the Type 14 in his list of the world's most beautifully designed
More than 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.
