Yes, of course. Please check this site for the pictures of the KG. http://www.vwcp.org/forum/garage.php?mode=view_vehicle&CID=71

Thanks a lot for the reply. In the Philippines, we are crazy about Volkswagens. We have our club here called the Volkswagen Club of the Philippines. You can check our forum at www.vwcp.org.

We have other two volkswagens. A 1971 1302s that I am planning of adpoting the German-Look style and a 1970 Fastback Type 3 which I am currently restoring. Its motor just run the other day.

Please check this also for the picture of our 1302s.

weascoast-paul and king karmann,

Thank you very munch. Indeed we are proud of our KG. Here in the Philippines, there are only handfull of karmann ghias. Most are hard top Karmann Ghias.

I have spent countless sleepless nights just to complete this ride. And as the saying goes, it is worth the wait.

We have our local claub of Karmann Ghia too. We call it The Karmann Ghia Registry Philippines or the KGB (Karmann Ghia Boys). You can check this: http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/karmannghiaregistryph/

Thanks a lot. I ll keep you updated of our KG.

TY,

Don

These are the pictures of our Karmann Ghia convertible equipped with a 1776 engine and sporting a single 34 PICT-3 Solex carbs, which I changed the main jet from 127.5 to 140. Sometimes I change the main jet to 150.

This morning, I decided to drive my Karmann Ghia a.k.a Mickey. That though of it alone almost gave me a heart attack! It got excited.

It was fun driving Mickey.

I took some videos while I was driving Mickey.

New look of our KG a.k.a Mickey. I removed the eight spoke- EMPI Style.

I prefer the stock rims for now. With those hubcaps and beauty rings, Mickey looks cool! On the Stocker side!

And I am planning of selling my eight spokes wheels!

PostPosted: Mon Oct 26, 2009 5:29 am    Post subject: Mickey ('67 Karmann Ghia 'vert) and us are are safe now! Reply with quote

On 26 September 2009, our Karmann Ghia, together with our baywindow, Fasty, Super beetle and Mitsubishi Sparewagon were flood (our house too, though our Pajero was saved and brought to a higher ground). I tried all the possible efforts to save these vee dubs, but the flood was to quick. And I had no time relocating these cars.

Though the vee-dubs are okay and running now, i need to address the electrical issues too.

I have learned that in times like this, the material possessions are secondary to the safety of my family. These can be fixed cleaned and replaced.

And I can honestly say that God is good, He spared us from possible harm.

Though I have shared this already to other forums, I'll like to share once more this story on this forum. These are the pictures.

That's a sad sight Dong but good to hear your family is OK. The Samba KG guys I'm sure will rally round to see if they can help get things running again. Lots of electrical expertise here.

@Ray and John

Thanks a lot for that, buddies. The KG is now running though, you are right John, I am still cleaning, fixing and checking some potential electrical issues to the addressed on Mickey. But, what is paramount here is that my family is safe now. And we are bliss to see another bright morning that will shine our way again! Thanks, my KG buddies!
