The Karmann Ghia is a vehicle that I have known of since childhood. A teacher at my primary school had a white example and it looked amazing to me as a small boy. They turn up at car event pretty regularly and I occasionally see one out on the road. However, I was caught out at Exotics@RTC recently when I saw another car parked next to a Karmann Ghia that was also badged with that name. I had to google it when I came home and found out that there was a different platform used for a newer design during the 1960s. These are apparently known as the Type 34 whereas the original version is the Type 14. I had no idea until this visit. I guess that makes my excursion and educational exercise.
