Tell Us Your Story! My wife Paula had a blue VW Karmann Ghia Convertible when I met her in 1982. The vehicle was sold shortly after that. Paula had always wanted another Karmann Ghia Convertible and in 1989 Paula saw an ad in the paper with this unit for sale. We drove to Dallas and it was “Love at First Sight”. I knew the moment she saw it we would be buying the car. The rest is history, the car runs and drives really well and we have a lot of fun with it!
