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

Continental AG "Der Reifen zum Porsche"
Der Film zeigt einen damals noch getarnten Porsche 993 auf der Nürburgring
Nordschleife. Dieter Röscheisen von Porsche fährt den 993 mit
unglaublicher Präzision über die Nordschleife um die neuen Continental
Reifen für Porsche zu testen. Nach Freigabe der Reifen sieht man auch
Walther Röhrl mit dem Porsche 993 auf dem Nürburgring. Der Film war in
den 90er Jahren Teil der Marketing Strategie der Continental AG.
The film shows a pre-production Porsche 993 on the Nürburgring
Nordschleife in Germany during the evaluation of Continental's newly
developed set of tires for Porsche. Test driver is Porsche's Dieter
Röscheisen. The film ends with a final lap and a statement by Walther
Röhrl. The film was shot on behalf of Continental and was part of their
advertising strategy in the 1990s.

Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 4 - Outer Canvas
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.
