Sweet Kustom Karmann Ghia

This is exactly why I keep a camera in the car- went to the local Safeway and saw this gem of a Karmann Ghia in the parking lot. It is owned by Sam, a professional car painter.
What a beautiful classic Volkswagen import and mostly original.
Attention to detail is evident all over this car, from the well done pin-striping to the 6-legged spider making his way down the side of the car from the antenna.
Original dash and original interior. Most of these have been redone and/or trashed, but this one is the real deal. Check the wheels- this is a very hard to find bolt pattern, made for the Karmann Ghia, these are fairly new issue wheels. Sam painted them to match the rest of the car and it really pulls it together well.
