Originally focused on the restoration of my November 1961 built (1962 model year) Type 3 Karmann Ghia (343) I have now extended the blog to cover the ongoing ownership of my 1964 built (1965 model year) RHD type 3 Karmann Ghia (344) purchased in 1982.

UK celebration of 50 years of the Type 34


Here is a link to some photos from our celebration last weekend of 50 years since the launch of the Type 34 (looks like you need to copy and paste) - we had a great time and some fantastic T34s came out to play.

Double celebration





The 1962 managed to complete a 200Km return trip to the Stanford Hall meeting last meeting without any problems and on top of that to win the Type 1 & 3 Karmann Ghia class, so a double celebration.
We took the 1965 and it formed a small part of the 50 years of the type 3 celebration alongside the cars of Dee & Mike Shaw, Janet & Clive Richardson and Mark Poulton. We have a larger meeting coming up next weekend at Stratford\Gaydon - numbers won't be large, probably about 8 cars over the 2 days. More pictures after next weekend.
