There should be quite a few in South Africa.

There is another ghia coupe in the next vilage to me.
:D Ant.


I've seen about 8 or 9 Ghias in the village that is Auckland, New Zealand. I even know the names of some of the owners. Dean, Michael, Martin, Terry, all good friends/acquaintences now. Plus 2 or 3 I've seen at Qualitat Motors when they were in for repairs. A beautiful girl drove past in a red one the other day, but we're still looking for her (car).

Nicholas may bring his Ghia here. If he does, ours will look what they are: second best.

I'd estimate that there are no more than 15-20 Ghias in NZ. (I know of 2 type 34s.)

I just checked the 2019 statistics. No significant changes in Germany since 2008 I guess.

The last time I saw a Karmann Ghia driving around on public roads in the USA was in the 1970's. It was a black convertible. Don't know what year. Was not in to Ghia's back then. Thought they were girly looking cars with cat whiskers on the front. Wish I would of known, hindsight being 20/20.
