  • A VW Karmann-Ghia from the 60s/early 70s.

    • Definitely 70s – looks like a 72 (taillights, bumpers and seats – besides engine – are really the only thing that changed on this car).

  • VW Karmann Ghia. Lovely

  • Karman Ghia designed by Luigi Segre for Volkswagen…. (Carrozzeria Ghia, Turin Italy)

  • Karmann Ghia – in white, no less!

  • I’m having a hard time pinning down the exact year for the one in the photo, but the tail-lights look like they might be from a 1970’s era car rather than a 1960’s era car. I used to own a ’67 white Karmann Ghia (Type 14 in VW speak). Fun car, but a complete rust-bucket. Only buy if you know the car has spent it’s entire life in Arizona or somewhere else that’s dry.

  • My grandmother had one of these for years. Or to be exact, she had several of them for years. Always powder blue. She had the wood-paneled station wagon for her six kids and required groceries, and she had her VW for going to the club for bridge. But they’re so low to the ground that they’re hard to see, and they kept getting crunched in parking lots. I think she gave up after the 3rd or 4th one. Sad. I would have happily given up on any other inheritance (not that I’m likely to get any: see above re: six kids, all equally fecund) if the last karmann ghia were still in the garage under a protective cover…

  • My brother had a ’69 Ghia back in the day. Definitely a rust-bucket, we could see the road through holes in the floor. When the reverse went out he backed-up ala Fred Flintstone by sticking a foot out the door… Great fun little car though!

  • We have a 74 Saturn yellow convertible! LOVE IT!
