Karmann Ghia: The German-Italian Job... and a lovely one at that. Rates as one of my favourite vintage roadsters... but no, it isn't the one posted.

There are bits and pieces that look like other cars, i.e. Fiat, Datsun, Alfa Romeo.

Pinninfarina was a designer for Fiat, Dino and Ferrari (possibly others) The Bond has simillar lines.

If it looks like a torch and shines like a torch...

I've no idea ... but I have to be off to get dinner "fixins" or I'll be in a fix when DH gets home. Hopefully this one will still be up for grabs when I get back... and with tons of clues!
