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.
1966 Dick Landy supercharged VW Beetle
This is an 1835CC DP with the CB perf. offroad special cam. I purchased the DLI kit complete off a running drag bug for $1500, installed it on my engine and fired it up. I only ran it briefly since it is wicked overdriven, (18-20PSI Boost) and I can only run it on race fuel for $12/gal. Plus at the time I didn't have a way to tune it so I didn't want to mess up the engine. I have no idea what the timing and A/F are. I would estimate the HP at around 200 or so.
Junkyard: VW Karmann Ghia, Beetles, Type 3 Wagons, and MORE!
This looks to be a mechanic's private wrecking yard. Mostly classic Volkswagens, but there're some other interesting cars as well. Namely, a black Honda Beat and a Mazda/Eunos Miata/Roadster/MX-5. I see rusting collections like this a lot. The impression I've gathered over the years as to why this type of this is relatively common, is the number of single-workshops that specialize in a particular model or maker. It really does make for some interesting discoveries. WasabiCars stickers: $5USD each. FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING.

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.
