Karmann Ghia Porsche Engine

Considering my recent fascination with Bader Racing's Karmann Ghia, I am attempting to recreate something similar, although not as aggressive. I am putting a 1972 2.4 engine into the car as well as a 901 gearbox. We are currently in the process of working out the suspension as well as the brake and wheel package. Pictures will come soon.

I got a chance to drive this one a couple of times:


What a fun little car. I wish I had gotten a chance to track it before it was sold but such was not my luck. It's in Texas these days, or at least it was last I heard. Here's some details of the build from the same site:

Good luck with your project. I'm subscribing.
