More than a "Lazy Custom" series
Back in 2006, I wrote in my blog a glimpse of my liking of a weekend warrior….
It is this blue Karmann Ghia I sketched.
3 years after, a few weeks back….I gave it a go!
I did though revised a bit, since after that blog entry….both HW and Jada had some pretty wild concepts of Karmann coupe racer and I wouldn’t want to repeat them in this custom. Sticking to my wanting of a vintage weekend racer, but in another guise is the route I pursued. I always loved to have some Matchbox regular wheel VW’s (donations, RAOK are welcomed :) ), and this is a good excuse to make one.
From the recent MB Karmann Ghia…
Initially I wanted it to be just a lazy custom, but the original stance is too high. So a new chassis was grafted, then fitted with skinny regular wheels from a beater Siku…
To make this Karmann Speedster in one of my fav livery.
Some more views.

tonneau cover, roll bar & twin tail pipes.
Cheers and Enjoy!
