1968 VW Karmann Ghia Subaru EJ205 WRX engine
Took 6 months to get to this point. Engine and 5 speed trans are from a 2003 WRX. Trans is reversed using Subarugears reversed R&P. I haven't put it on the ground yet so no word on how that came out. you can see the wheels are spinning the right way in neutral though. I rewired the stock ECU myself which is difficult but doable. The wires are still exposed but now I can wrap them up and replace the firewall. I'm going to lose some storage space back there for the TMIC but I don't care. I know I hacked up a classic VW but its worth it! From a 40hp aircooled oil dripping mess to 300hp in a reliable, clean and crazy sleeper...





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.
