I collect vintage photos, mostly of split beetles and barndoor buses. This photo came with some other I recently got from Germany. I thought you guys in here might enjoy it:

Hope all you macho guys are in touch with your feminine side...this was the caption that came with the picture.

Volkswagen hopes to capitalise on the phenomenal success of the German People's Car with the combination of an elegant new body with the original chassis. The new Karmann Ghia Coupe is aimed particularly at women drivers.

That's Downtown LA Corner of Broadway and 7th. Broadway looking North into the Burbank mountains. Clifton's to the right, Bullock to the Left corner, and the RKO antenna still stands today at Broadway and 6th.

Ha! yeah they're nice pictures Udo. Someone posted another period showroom picture with a black Ghia like the second one above. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: Here it is...can't remember where I got it...you probably sent it to me. Laughing

There are some really good holiday pictures of your Ghia Udo. Official pictures are nice but period pictures with previous owners are special.

I love this one:
