While taking the Karmann Ghia out for a test drive today to check on the functioning of the alternator, and other engine-related components. I discovered that it stalls while stopping and there a slight pull when braking. I like driving it since it is a Volkswagen engine and is peppy for a type 1. It shows much potential.

Staging at Esquimalt Lagoon. Here the Ghia stops so I can have a stretch.

I will also have to keep it housed during winters. Because this is such a wet climate, being on the West Coast of Canada, it will pay dividends to do this. I will be able to enjoy it that way. The previous owner kept it sheltered in an unheated garage. With a concrete floor there might be moisture to consider. He had one but I don’t. And I can get more road base and plywood sheets just like on a military maintenance exercise.shelter
