    With the price of gas this car is awsome! It's light quick and reliable, Handles great and stops better.

    I like that.

    Today I stopped to look at a red Karmann Ghia convert for sale in someones yard.
    ...a little doughy, but seemed solid and looked sweet.

    No way can I buy your car (FL-CA, etc...), but I'd like to see the engine and hear about the turbo setup.
    My uncle had a 57 transporter with every available option except rag top, pop-up or roof windows, and he had a beetle that was what ever the last year was for semafore turnsignals 63/64??

    The engine is a stock rebuild with a custom header and a China t-3 turbo I modified the stock carb for boost and locked the distributor at 16 degrees, Not sure how much power, I would guess about 100-110 HP roughly double stock though.

    A little over 100 HP at 5 psi, It does really good at 8-10 but it runs out of fuel pump on long pulls.
