. . . the newest addition to the family and the Mister's pride and joy. Not necessarily mid-century, as 1972 is about as mid-century as, well, as 1928. But the design for the Karmann Ghia originated in 1953, so I am officially bootstrapping Kermit into the era.
He sports his original Willow Green paint and that VW anomaly, the automatic stickshift.
I have been shocked to learn that there are apparently many folks out there (all under age 30) who have never seen a Ghia before. So it is our task to inform the world of the magnificence of the Ghia.
We are now a VW tight family. I don't know if that makes us incredibly hip or tragically unrealistic (I think the parts are made by union elves in a secret fortress deep in the Black Forest). But for now, gerne auto!
