Sweet Longhorn Karmann Ghia in Austin, Texas
When I was 14, my sister’s boyfriend asked to swap my Honda S90 for his 1950s black Karmann Ghia for a few hours. Yes, of course! I drove that VW around for a while until it was low on gasoline. I had no idea that the gas filler was under the front hood — it was pretty obvious that I was too young to be out alone in any car but I knew that the attendant wasn’t going to blow my cover! (I never asked why the boyfriend wanted my bike that afternoon – was he undercover, too?)
I got these pics at Auditorium Shores and Lady Bird Lake.
