KARMANN GHIA 1973
restauration karmann ghia





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.





Diesel Vanagon CoalCam
* * * Sorry about the idle. Driving starts at 0:51. * * * Tow hook-mounted camera records the view of the tailpipe of my 1982 VW 1.6D-powered Vanagon Westfalia on an around-the-block run. There wasn't as much soot (coal rollin') as I thought there'd be. This might be because it was dusk. If I get time, I'll make another one during the middle of the day.





Karmann Ghia - Post Paint Walkaround
I rolled the car out into the sun and we go for a walkaround to talk about the good, the bad and everything in between





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.





Driving my Karmann Ghia
The 1956 Karmann Ghia I own does get driven from time to time. I have friends who claim I 'never' drive it. This video shows that isn't the case.

Bleekemolens Race Planets
Rotterdam, 15 oktober 2011 100% TUNING MASSAAL BEZOCHT Tienduizenden autoliefhebbers naar Ahoy voor driftspektakel en unieke showcars Zaterdag 15 en zondag 16 oktober zijn autoliefhebbers massaal naar Ahoy Rotterdam gekomen voor een bezoek aan de 8e editie van 100% Tuning. Men kon zich vergapen aan ruim 200 zeer bijzondere auto's gepersonaliseerd in een grote diversiteit van stijlen en uitvoeringen. Van een 'rat look' VW Karmann Ghia tot een de laatste BMW AC Schnitzer; er was er voor ieder wat wils. Ook het outdoor driftspektakel trok veel belangstelling. In twee dagen passeerden ruim 43.500 mensen de deuren van Ahoy. Naast de speciaal geselecteerde auto's en het zonovergoten driftspektakel konden de autofans opnieuw terecht voor de laatste trends op het gebied van car performance, styling en car audio. Ook de nieuwe onderdelen, zoals de Monster Energy Freestyle Show (bike trial), de VAG Area (met getunede auto's uit de stal van Volkswagen AG) en het onderdeel Auto X (speciale, sportieve uitvoeringen van de bekende automerken) kregen veel belangstelling. Volle tribunes tijdens driftspektakel De driftshows van Falken en Bleekemolens Race Planet zijn met veel gejuich ontvangen en trokken massale belangstelling. De tribunes waren tijdens alle zes shows tot de nok toe gevuld. De Falken-shows onder aanvoering van meervoudig Europees kampioen Remmo Niezen waren een absolute publiekstrekker. Het publiek smulde van de piepende banden, de vele rook en de geur van het opspattend brandend rubber.
