Let’s take a look at the 20 years of Karmann Ghia.
I had a matching shifter boot made for the Z. I dig it. #FakeManual
A very happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there. My family got for me a Nismo steering wheel for the Z. No it’s not for the Ghia all you air coolers, but it’s cool nonetheless. It was also my oldest son’s (17th) and youngest son’s (20th) birthdays. I can’t wait for the day we get to go cruising in the Ghia.
Ops department. I was wrong about the spacer size on my rear wheel. As a result, my measurements were off and a 9.5″ wheel is not going to be wide enough.
Looks like I’m going to have to go with the Forgestar CF5 in brilliant silver; still 19 x 8.5 up front with a 245/40, but a 19 x 10 in the rear with 285/35 tires.
These wheels are rotary forged instead of cast, so they should be much nicer in the long run.
It would seem this place should be the 370Z Project, as lately I’ve done more to the Z than the Ghia. The streak continues. I got a set of wheels and tires on the way.
I’m getting the 19’s, 8.5″ +21 up front and 9.5″ +10 in the rear. They are being delivered wrapped in Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 rubber, 245/40 and 275/35. Installed, they should look something like this.
I’m sharing a couple pictures of the Blue Mamba V10 powered Ghia because I really dig this ride. … love the taillights and rounded fins.
