One Of The Few Cars I've Owned That I Wish I Never Sold. — My 74' had the super beetle motor, so performance was pretty good for a Volkswagon. I loved how it handled. My parents lived in Orofino, ID, and I used to drive scenic and twisty Hwy 12. The Ghia was always great fun on a road like that. Alas, my brother put it in a ditch and I sold it to someone who promised to lovingly restore it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great looks, easy to work on, unique and rare.

Cons: In the last year they made quite a few changes, so parts can be hard to find.
