Theme Tuesdays: Karmann Ghias

4

The Karmann Ghia is a car that prior to starting this site I didn’t really know a whole lot about.

I think I had maybe seen a handful  up to that point, but I never really put much time into learning much about them.

Of course hang around Volkswagen (or rather air cooled) guys long enough and you pick up a bit here and there and suddenly you grown quite fond of them.

Inexplicably I’ve yet to do a Theme Tuesday on them and that seems wrong so here goes:

Always love it when I can include BMX on this site

Found this build on layitlow… few years old now

This entire Theme Tuesday was inspired by a read through of Mike’s Subaru powered Ghia thread

Something about aircooled vehicles and patina just work well together

This popped up on an older Vortex for sale thread

Like all air cooled vehicles they look great with a fresh coat of paint as well

Doo-doo brown has never looked so fresh

Couple weeks back I mistakenly took a Razor Edge Ghia for a Corvair…

Love the colour on this though I might change the wheels if it were mine
ghia_17
I was surprised to see how many of these had been converted to 1/4 mile cars.. couldn’t leave those out

Clever name

If you think I forgot wagons, don’t they will get their own Tuesday post in the not so distant future!
