You should know.... it's a 1968 Karmann Ghia, basically a Volkswagen Beetle just with a different body. Karmann made the body parts for the VW Scirocco too...

It's got a high performace air cooled 1500cc engine with 50HP :thumbsup:

The Ghia is an awesome car. I had a '72 and some idiot rear-ended it at 45 MPH while it was parked in front of my house. I still miss that car..

1968 Karmann Ghia

Not much different than a 356 Porsche.
I spend many a night and weekend restoring the body on a '63 356
in my garage some years back. Thought that was the ugliest car
I ever saw when it was first brought to me. But by the time I finished
working on it........it had sorta grown on me..........thought is was kinda cute.
