  1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_Super Although I think this is a junior
  2. Not really a Porsche thing, they are just standard Recaro aftermarket of the era. Hard to see from your pics whether they are a tilting version (which has a big say on what they will suit) and if they have adjustable lumbar BMW guys like them (maybe not yellow) for the 2002 series and I reckon Ford Escort. Cut across all markets on Gumtree or eBay, I'm thinking there's $6- 800 value
  3. That would be great Lee in definitely one down.
  4. Definitely not. whilst it is a very easy conversion it would go against everything I know and love about classic cars.
  5. I have a 1959 Karmann Ghia which was the final year of production. They are known as Low lights and were only ever made in LHD and were not sold in Australia. Australia first go t Karmann Ghias in 1960 with the newer body style. I bought mine out of California in September last year and eventually got it shipped here in May (long story) Anyhow I know there are plenty of VW fans on here and also people who like picture driven threads so I thought I would record the journey here as I try to retain some of the 60yr old patina but also bring it up to a nice solid driver standard. The mix of old and new might not work and I may change my mind down the track but to get it up and driving that is the direction I'm heading. I was able to get it running after checking everything over however the asbestos checks in LA seem to have involved removing the brake shoes and calling it job done so I had quite a job of getting the brake system back up to speed. Front and rear suspension done with new link pins and king pins up front. First job was door hinge pins, followed by rear floors, then I tackled a dodgy repair to the RH front fender, where it seemed easier to cut a new body line with an angle grinder than try to rework the existing line. Front trunk had a rusted rear wall and spare wheel floor, and the ridge on the front nose needed tlc. Replacement rust panels are cheap and easy to source and the fit was good. I have bought new bumpers also. I disassembled all the seat frames and replaced broken springs and the sandblasted and repainted, ready for the new upholstery that I sourced from Lenny Copp in the USA, super expensive in VW terms but quite reasonable compared to Porsche stuff, and great quality. The roof paint is too far gone to be saved so I am just in the process of buzzing it all off after which I will be able to fit the new headliner and refit the front and rear windows with nice new seals. Picture of the car in LA By the time it got here things looked a little worse for wear. The car colour is Bamboo green with a Dark green roof.
  6. Early G series, great condition, so good.
  7. Should also have a digital speed display that can be set to miles or kilometres, maybe within the tacho.
  8. Really enjoyed the video and so many of the family shared traits with my oval beetle.
