So I have 2 jeeps, one is not getting used and is an hour away, both my jeeps are wheelable so being left without a rig isn't a problem.
I'm thinking of selling one off and buying a Karmann Ghia , thoughts on Karmann Ghia's? Experiences?

I think it would be fun to have a cheap little car to run around town in and have fun.

somehow I don't think VWboy has any experience with Ghia's. Considering they have the filters in oil and are air cooled engines that only put out something like 1600cc.

Somethin' like that.

If you've got a wheeling rig already, Why not grab a Ghia? Depends on what you're going for. For $5000 you can get one that's running and in good shape if you shop around a bit. Careful of the assholes that try to sell them for much more than they're worth. Personally, I'd be thinking of a convertible, but that's just me. Would update the wheels a bit to a 5-spoke or similar, as I think it looks better. Turbo-charge the engine... put some other little modern conveniences in it. Make it purdy.

Small, good lil car. Seems at least a bit fun. Something different to do at least.

fun car to drive, I owned a couple in my younger days.....

If you are a big person, you will not like the room. Pedals are close together, very hard to drive if you have big feet.


30 mpg is not unheard of though.
