Forty Minutes of Slammed Karmann Ghia Fail in Three Minutes.
Tried to get the Ghia out of the garage today without getting any help, so as to learn a system to get it out without too much hassle. Ended up spending 90 minutes trying to get it out of the garage, and just when I thought it was out... Dads Citroen was in the way at the back, and was frozen to the floor, with a non-working engine. Cue me giving up. I think next Christmas I'll ask for a really wide set of 5-6 foot long metal ramps. Damn the 7 inch narrowed beam, and camber at the back, making lining the planks up an impossible task for a lone person.
Slammed Ghia meets 3-4" ramp... Fail.
Video that was supposed to show how much effort it is to get my Ghia over a
3-4" ramp.... But, I got wedged, and dad stopped filming, and I was too
busy to care about the video.

slightly uphill with some short shifts (I'm no racer) but you get the
picture. speedo marks are at the 20,40,60,80,100mph.
vintage! The Karmann Ghia | drive it!
It is a heartbreaker of a car, a real dreamboat and possibly the most
beautiful VW ever built. However the sporty coupe does have one small
drawback. Its design is far racier than its driving performance.The first
Ghias were fitted wtih 30 horsepower VW Beetle
engines, while later models got 50 horsepower motors. Still,
when the Karmann Ghia was introduced back in 1955 this was more than enough
to keep vehicles like the Goggomobil and BMW Isetta in check. During it's
close to 20 years in production, some 443,000 Ghias were sold. Today this
classic car has nothing left to prove. We take a relaxing drive in this
stylish milestone of automotive history.

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
