About “Blue (3)”

Another picture of my '64 Karmann Ghia coupe. A mostly original car, purchased 5/21/64 from a VW dealership in Boca Roton, FL. The car made its way to the Atlanta area, and then later to Mannsfield OH. I bought it from the fourth owner.

I've modified it for street/strip action, while keeping all of the original parts. Someday I hope to restore it back to stock. But for now, I'm enjoying it in its "quick" state.

Future plans call for a much wilder engine displacing 2332cc's. The car should be capable of mid-to-high 11 second quartermile times with the new engine. Its a 12.80 ride currently.
