Today we've going to check out a seriously rare machine that I found near the '60 Studebaker Lark: a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Type 34. Or is it some kind of weird replica? That soft top sure doesn't look factory. I'm sure some of you VW experts out there can fill us in; I'm not even going to attempt to guess a year on this thing.
