I've seen both clear and tinted replacement windshields. Clear would be a better choice if you're trying to keep things as Karmann did them.

The best bet is to search the Samba classifieds. There are usually some NOS ones for sale there but they're usually not cheap. You could also check...

I think a '68 1600 should be timed at TDC.

The level in your photo looks about right to me. It should be no higher than the level at which the air cleaner body becomes larger in diameter (hope...

Unusual that your Type 34 has a 1500 engine. If it is in fact a 1500 I think you should time it at 7.5 BTDC, which would be the third mark from the...

Bobnotch Yeah, John's done a helluva good job on that car. I don't think there's a spot that will be left untouched when he's done. 4 years ago

It's been a long time since I've made any progress on the Ghia. 2012 has been an overwhelming year — turned 50, got married, started a new job, currently in the 9th month of what was supposed to be a 5-month house addition/renovation project — so the car (and blog) have had to take a back seat. I'm looking forward to getting back to the Ghia soon, but in the meantime I've been picking up some NOS parts occasionally, including this collection of bearings, bushings, and seals for early Type 3 fron...

Not too bad, but not as good a turnout as in past years. I think I counted 7 type 34s, but there may have been a couple more. There seemed to be more Type 3 energy in the custom section of the show than in the stock area. A good time though as always.

It's the Ghia's 50th birthday today. I bought it a gift -- a reproduction '62 Ghia badge -- and toasted the occasion with a glass of Duvel. Yes, I know it's not a German beer, but the brewery is less than 200 miles from Osnabrück, so that's c...
