History:
Georg bought the Karmann from an elderly gentleman in Hannover in summer 1992. The car was at his first owner then and had just 65.000 km on the clock with the first engine. In summer 1996 he got the bigger 1776cc engine. In 1997 some nice guy drove backwards into the parking Ghia. A new front mask and a complete new paintjob has been done by Dannenhauer & Stauss in Stuttgart. Since June 26th in 1998 the Karmann is on the road again. Being a Resto Cal Looker until then, it's a traditional Cal Looker since 2000.
