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.

My 1974 Karmann Ghia
This is my 1974 Ghia. It was a hunk of junk when I first purchased it. Five
years later after taking it compleatly apart it's now my favorite toy. 87mm
pistons too. The gauges on the dash are VDO, but I purchased three "BUS"
fuel gauges from junkyards. I removed the chromes rings and installed them
on the new VDOs. Now they match the originals on the dash.

1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia STK # 1027
Volkswagen made this sweet 1969 Karmann Ghia for fun road trips. The 1.6L
flat 4 cylinder motor powering it was rebuilt back to stock specs 17,000
miles ago. Less than 500 miles ago the 4 speed manual transmission was
rebuilt with new clutch and axles being put back in. Inside is a custom tan
interior with a combination of leather and tweed making it gorgeous. The
AM/FM/CD radio lets the tunes play while you cruise down the road. Custom
wheels and radial tires give this Karmann Ghia exactly what it needs. We
