Hello dear Samba fans, I just came across an idea....

Although I'm not part of these forums for a long time, I fail to find a "meet and greet" topic. But not in the way that everybody presents himself, but only through a picture. Maybe with a line of text, that's it.

So (for those who are brave enough?)........let's put some faces to the names!

I'll start..... Embarassed I don't care how young/old or fit/not fit you are, if this hobby joins us, nobody should, either Wink This is me, picking up my Ghia. Nice from far away, but far from nice Evil or Very Mad

To be honest, I just hope I'm not the only moron thinking like that Rolling Eyes Laughing

Nice meeting you!
Vlad

Oh, and either this pandemic is making me eat more or the Ghia is getting smaller Embarassed

Awesome Vlad, I always enjoy putting a face to a name!

Here's me a few years ago before I tore my Ghia down, only one I can find at the moment with me and my Ghia:

Hey, thanks for the positive feedback, and for the smiles! Keep them coming! Cool

@Mark : The pandemic also makes my Weissbier bottles dissapear at an alarming rate. With the mentioned results Embarassed Laughing

@Jeff : That looks great in the picture! But then again, many "befores" look great from far away and through a PC screen Crying or Very sad Razz

@John : Hello Mr. Waters Razz Those really are some nice pictures! Unfortunately, from the wrong end of Germany Laughing

Happy to see you all Smile

I no longer own a Ghia, so no picture.
But--------visualize an old, short, fat, bald guy with a little light yellow car and you'll get the idea.

I have no old photos of me standing next to my Ghia, and I'm not posting one now showing how it's currently buried beneath a hoarder's mess of useless shit in the garage. Embarassed

Just imagine an iowegian looking guy that's not as old (but then who is?), a little taller, a little leaner, not nearly as bald, and not wearing shoes with Velcro closures.

That, Sirs, is NOT an excuse Shame on you

Although pictures near to your Ghias are appreciated, they are by no means mandatory Laughing

@Ant: I have a somewhat older friend (university teacher) that also flies rubber powered airplanes. (Or at least, did it 10-15 years ago), I thought that hobby was almost dead, guess I'm wrong....

@Marc: Our imagination and day-dreaming about how it will look and drive, is keeping our interest going in the restoration time Wink In my mind, my Ghia already has thousands of miles on the clock, even if I only started with the fuse box today!

@Pete: Lovely Lowlight family!

Okay, I'll play along, although I must say, I much prefer the Vintage Ghia photos with all the beautiful girls/women in them.

After a Level 4 Lockdown and a 3-month long prior enforced hibernation, Emiko and I came out today.

The sun still shines in New Zealand, today a little more than yesterday. I think we've beaten the C-19 virus back.

Here I am back in the early 70's with my future bride (married 45 years this August, we've been dating for over 50 years) though we didn't have a wedding planned when this photo was taken.
Yes, I can stick to a commitment!

I haven't changed much have I? This is after 2 daughters and 8 Grandchildren.
