Well Preserved (Monochorme Monday)

My son's photo of his new car...1968 Karmann Ghia. Not a bad rear for 42-year-old.

Nothing like a vintage car to pick up the spirits. sometimes I wish I still had my old VW bug. But it was too beat up to keep. Someone really cared for this car.

Oh my goodness! I haven't seen a Karmann Ghia for so long!

LD said...

Wow Karmann Ghias have been coveted at least around here for decades. I wonder if they qualify for the Concours D'Elegance?

Pasadena Adjacent said...

oh no. I hope he enjoys spending time under the hood as well as in front of it (the engines in the trunk area right?)

Good wheels.

Your son has very good taste!

I had a friend who lived in South Pas and had a white Karmann Ghia. I wonder....

Lily Hydrangea said...

LoL! your son has excellent taste. & I love how you photographed this with the sunlight highlighting the chrome. You've made this very colorful for a black and white photo.

I used to think Karmann Ghia was such a funny name...I must Google it. Great shot of a great car. And those old black and yellow plates....
