Hello,
I wanted to announce that I will be bringing out Rod Buster, my 69 Ghia to the Fresno Autorama March 13, 14 and 15. We have been invited to the 50th year of the event. I have had the car in hibernation for the last 22 years and have restored it to 1988 show condition.

Chris Addington

Hello Chris.

I remember you KG. I was a teenager back in the 80's when your KG was a hit! I have a copy of the Hot VW mag where you KG was published. Pretty cool.

I guess, the 80's Vee-dubs are making their come back!

Cool KG, BTW!

That's a Type 1 with dual superchargers. I was into that car also when it arrived on the scene way back when.

I clicked on this thread because I thought someone busted a rod. LOL

Nice car! I have a few old magazines with show photos of your ghia. Cool to see that it lives on.

Shocked WOW! I remember that car! It was so 'RAD'! Very Happy

Wasn't it considered one of the best custom cars in the world at the time? The next level, VW or otherwise. I think it had a 'credit card' type key, FI, and a bunch of other cool stuff.

Good job Chris!! I'm glad it's still alive and well!! I hope I get a chance to see it in person!

Ah yes... you know were all getting older now...

When our domain names expire! Laughing

IIRC wasn't that Ghia originally done in green without so much of the "billet" stuff on it, then revamped? Or am I getting senile and thinking of another cool cover /spread car from way back when?
