16: 1975 VW Karmann Ghia
Allen is a big domestic car guy, but there are some standout import pieces in his collection as well. The VW Karmann Ghia is a unique offering that has a one-of-a-kind look to it. During the latter part of the ’60s and ’70s, Volkswagen was on a decline. The popularity of the Beetle and the Bus had changed and consumers were hungry for something more. VW hoped that the Karmann Ghia would resonate with younger buyers.
But the car became somewhat of a novelty as years continued to progress. That’s not to say that the Karmann Ghia is a bad car; in fact, it’s actually one of the most satisfying VWs to drive. The car also had a close resemblance to many Porsche models hitting the market around the time as well.
