Beautiful looking Karmann Ghia. You didn't often see the convertibles, mostly the hardtops. I looked at your WIP also.

Super model!  Isn't it fun to build them to give to the original owners?  I built my wife's sister's Chevette and she was pleased!

Beautiful. We had a light yellow one when I was a kid. My was to be my step father ice raced it on Lake George when he first got it. Then gave it to my mother. We use to go to the beach in it. Us 4 boys, My 2 sisters. My mom and our dog Ringo. That was before seat belt laws were in effect.

Thanks for the awesome comments, guys! I'm just glad it was to be a convertible, as the roof piece is one clear part with the glass molded in........
