Karmann Ghia for Life
A lifelong Volkswagen enthusiast, Brandon Jackson’s dream car journey culminated in the acquisition and restoration of a ’58 Karmann Ghia Convertible. Talk about dedication, passion, and unwavering love for classic VWs…

Karmann Collection
Special thanks to the Volkswagen Classic and Heritage department for inviting hotVWs to a rare opportunity: they opened the doors to the private Karmann collection preserved at Volkswagen Osnabrück in Germany.

Misfit ‘58
While on a hunt for a desirable early Karmann Ghia, Joe Alexander stumbled upon a model that might be considered a unicorn: a very early 1958 coupe featuring a variety of late ’57 characteristics. The car recently came out of a 5-year-long restoration – and it looks remarkable.

Buses by the Bridge XXVII
Buses by the Bridge (BBB) is put on by the London Bridge Bullis, on the shore of Lake Havasu, on Arizona’s border with California. The event is a favorite place for VW travelers from all around the country, especially places with cold climates, to travel to for a respite from frigid weather and enjoy a weekend under the sun.

Until we meet again, old friend
We will never forget the day Robert Amar Barrilleaux passed away. He was one of a few people that would be remembered simply by one name — Bear. To the Volkswagen community, Bear was larger than life.
