Please tell me it was another ghia you own and not this one. I've only seen this one a couple of times in person, but it is one of my favorites.

Aw man, I've been somewhat looking for a driver ghia, and told my wife a few times, that I'd love to have that one. Wish I had known you were willing to part with it. Hopefully the new owner will bring it out sometimes.

Congrats on the new bus. Hurry up and post some pics!

Sweet but I know you hated to see the ghia go but you got to do what you got to do. I still like to see the old ghia some day or at a show or to

80 to 85, I saw the Meriwether Co. cop tapping on his radar when you went by him on I-85. I'm sure he thinks it's broken!

I was waving away at Doodle when we passed that cop, and Doodle didn't even look my way. To busy looking in his rearview to see if that cop was coming after him.

I had so much height on mine, I never even thought about my tires not fitting once I get it down, but some one ask me about the stock wheels and tires, and wasn't sure of the answer...
