Richard G.

1971 Ghia Convertible

— C.-

I call him �Doc.� But you know him as G. a member for almost a year As a nurse practitioner, he has the huge of keeping yours truly smoothly; or at least as well as can be I guess it is sort of like to keep our VWs running; with squeaking chassis and all kinds of wearing out.

I first aware of Richard�s interest in through my wife, who is the phone at the same practice. Richard had loved Karmann Ghias and of someday finding a decent one to especially a convertible. Here is a bit about his 1971 Karmann convertible in his own words:

�I purchased my 71 KG at the end of the summer of last I had been looking on the internet for a year. (If you don�t know are many web sites for KG�s). I one that looked promising and to Birmingham, AL to take a look at it. I a trailer with me, so if I liked the I could bring it back. you look at a car and bring a trailer, negotiating abilities decrease they know you really the car. This was the particular I wanted because the years all had different bumpers which I did not The top was in bad shape but overall the car was OK. The largest with these cars the convertibles, is the rust and body It is rare that you can find a KG the nose being dented or the pans being rusted, in case mine has both

I chose the KG for several reasons. I a convertible sports car that was not too and somewhat easy to work on. As any VW�s, parts are easy to My mother is German �many times, so therefore I enjoy the of the VW line. The lines of the KG are unique and people can recognize them If you are looking for speed, the KG is not the car for you. I first bought the car, I had driven one other KG before. I they did not have much but when I got her home and drove I thought my riding lawnmower had get up and go. ——Bill may interject his story the 3 cylinders��

Yes, that �3-cylinder I�ll tell you later. But a little bit about Richard and his I hope I get all of this right.

grew up as a �military kid;� of traveling around the world and He became a corpsman in the U.S. That led to his current profession, is that of a nurse practitioner in a practice. �Doc� is �married children� with a lovely His wife, Robbie, is a surgery nurse. And they have two Meghan, who is in high school �license to bump dent� and Abby, who is just over old. They are also lovers. With two or three of their own, they built a beautiful home on an with a barn, tractor and (I wanna drive the tractor! LOVE the tractor.)

But about those 3 cylinders� had driven his Ghia over one afternoon, not long after he had it. We looked it over and checked it He commented how the car didn�t have power. Since it was his first I figured he was comparing it to a V8 or something and �Yeh, these VWs are not known for up the road.�

But as he left to drive I finally heard the motor as he headed up the street. I remember to Connie, �Wow, that�s running on 3 cylinders. No wonder he think it had much power.�

So she passed the info onto the next time she saw him at work. out, he found a plug terminator was loose and had fallen off the plug. Richard was impressed by the new power of what now seemed a NEW engine! Vroom! Now, if he had a new top�

That�s a long in itself� Richard missed spring�s driving season, for a local �home shop� to up repairing the top mechanism and replacing the top and Richard�s word to the wise: tell a repair person, �No big That guy better never in for a physical. Ha ha!

Well, he�s to finally have his baby with all forty horses and a new top. We can expect to see him, and the family too, at lots of get-togethers and events. I�m glad are all �with us.�
