    The first car I bought was a lime green Karman Ghia – sweet car!

    It’s by no means a performance car, but it’s still one of the most beautiful cars ever built.

      My first car was a red ’71 Karmann Ghia. I loved it!!

    • CPT_Doom

      I believe it was Motor Trend that referred to the Kharman Ghia as “the slowest sports car ever produced.”

        Well, it *is* a re-bodied Beetle, well known for their performance characteristics

    Beautiful. On a 2010 visit to Paris I saw a silver one parked every day outside a restaurant near the Pont Louis Philippe. I kept going by there just to see it.

    A dear friend of mine was killed in one of these. I choke up whenever I see one.

  • Keshaca

    Also know as the poor man’s Porsche

    My brother had a ’69 Ghia back in high school – it was great except it wouldn’t go into reverse, so he and the passenger had to stick their feet out of the doors and push…ala Fred Flinstone…

  • Well, since we are waxing nostalgic here:
    My first wife’s first college roommate was the daughter of the guy that designed the Karmann Ghia, or at least that was what the roomie claimed.
