9 Comments on "This VW Type 34 Ghia ‘Razor’ Is The Beauty Next To The Beach"
Not sure I got the reference for one in, one out. However, this car is an absolute beauty. Nice images. Looks like you used adobe audition cs6 to touch up a bit, but it looks great.
I am big fan of classic Karmann Ghia, since I had seen one blue coupé in Croatia, I love it’s classic lines. But there is too something special about Type 34. Was wondering, how it looks like, and I have to agree with Matt. It looks a Corvair mixed with 2002. I like elegant color combination of Matt’s car and that yellow lights. It look pretty decent.
Losing the smell of an original car is one of the downsides of restoring them. The smell of a classic Volkswagon brings back some happy memories for me.
As for the car, what a beautiful example and I like Matt’s perspective on things.
Matt’s my kind of car guy. what a great attitude. Things are for using. That’s why I like old Datsuns and Volvos. This Ghia really pushes all the buttons, beauty, quality, personality, originality, simplicity-so cool! My only critique would be the steering wheel. As cool as it is, it’s a little too much ’70s era plastic front and center for my taste.
“Vintage cars” ? Dude, we aren’t discussing Model Ts here. As for the 34, I have never been a fan. I looked at it objectively here but still have to say the original is still the best. Those swoopy lines can never be beaten. If I had to have a 34 though, I would choose this one. It’s a very nice example.
Another great video, a beautiful 34! I love the smell of my old Mercedes, like perfume to my nose. Volkswagens have a similar yet distinct smell, this car has the looks and sound to go with the lovely smell. Love to have one! Congratulations Matt.
Another bullseye ! I love it when you folks find such cool and little known cars to profile. As a car crazy kid in LA during the late ’60’s I used to see these Type 34 KG’s fairly often. Pretty rare these days although I saw one at a car show here in Prescott, Arizona last summer.
Matt hits the experience on the head. I have 2 unrestored every man classics and the joy of driving them is a combination of the smell, the sounds and the feel of a well used old friend. Thanks Petrolicious!
Through the years I’ve seen photos of the Type 34 but never have I seen one in person. This is probably the closest I will ever get. It’s a beautiful car. Thanks Matt and thanks Petrolicious.
