First fire up after engine assembly. The Phantom Ghia is a 9 second 1/4 mile, 1958 VW Karmann Ghia door slammer. Built by Robert Cook or Cooker's V-Dubs in Clear Spring, Maryland and owned and driven by Rob Schultz. ****UPDATE**** this car now resides in France under new ownership.

RED BARON "The Fastest VW on Earth"
Irwindale California 3.14.2010 Drag Day, goes 121mph in the 8th mile. I followed the crew back to the pits where they found a bent pushrod. Still a great job and a great car. Legendary.
