It's been a while since we saw a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Type 34 here, and that one was undergoing major engine work at the time. Good thing Iamhoff had camera- well, phone- at the ready when he found this Type 34 on the street in San Diego. This is one rare machine! Make the jump to read Iamhoff's description.

O DOTS Guru:

I submit for your consideration a vehicle I've seen several times near the UC San Diego campus. Finally, I was able to stop and get some decent pics of it. Sorry about the interior pic, but what can you do with a camera phone and a dirty window? Not sure of the year ('61 thru '69 obviously) and definitely not restored, but very straight. I know they're rare, but two guys who I work with who are surfers and who claim to worship at the VW Bus altar (the boss still has his Euro Van) had never seen one in person. Thought you might find it interesting.
