The fairest Volkswagen of them all
Best looker from the VW stable somewhere I have a photo of an absolute basket case Karman Ghia that was skim bogged and painted back to immaculate I caught it with the paint off,pretty sure its on the cohort somewhere.
I just like the busted beauty of this entire scene. Reminds me a bit of an Eggleston photo. Well shared.
This one’s in slightly better condition….
Nice / beautiful / sad photo. My Dad had been eyeing a new Karmann Ghia back in the day, I remember he had saved the brochures from the dealer.
Then Mom got pregnant with my older sister, and that was the end of that idea and he bought a Rambler 🙂
Sure! If you want a German car to look good, then you need to hop a train to Italy and visit the design houses for beautiful styling. Not very fast but certainly beautiful.
It was good enough for Maxwell Smart to drive up to CONTROL HQ in for seasons 3 and 4 of Get Smart, when VW was one of the sponsors.
Surprisingly, Max never used the KG in any of his missions in these seasons, reverting to his trusty Sunbeam Tiger or a Shelby Mustang Convertible.
This is still a good looking design and way better than the Type 34 KG based on the Type 3 model series.
