Is that snow?
Parked next to a VW Karmen-Ghia (sp?) yesterday with both doors off. That
has got to be a trip driving down the highway next to a truck or other
vehicle. Not to mention the loss of structural integrity in the event of a
If you're going to be dumb, you better be tough
A Ghia with the doors off is probably as tough as your average
fiberglass bodied dune buggy. VW converts have reinforcing beams
added to the underside, but most of the strength of a VW is in the
floorpan--you can undo a couple of dozen bolts and lift the entire
body off and what's left remains quite drivable.
If you want to be safe in a collision you won't be driving a Ghia
anyway. There's been a lot of safety legislation between the last
sale of a Ghia and now.
And I don't see why it would be any more of a "trip" than driving a
Jeep with the doors off or a motorcycle.
