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.

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 temporary.
