Walking down center street last night, I saw the car of my dreams. A Karmann Ghia convertible. Le Sigh. I always said, if ever I was to start driving, I'd want a Karmann Ghia. Since my driving would be more a hobby than a necessity, I don't need a practical car, just a fun car. Growing up, I used to love MGs. My childhood was during the last gasp of the MG, as they went out of production circa 1982. I still do love them, but KGs are simply gorgeous. So retro, so otherworldly. Also, being German, rather than British, they are less likely to be a royal pain in the ass. The engines were the same used in the VW beetle, and the electrical system while not perfect, a hell of a lot better than Morris Garages...
Anyway, I snapped this white cabriolet. I don't love the color, but it's a convertible, and simply stunning...
