Original Karmann Ghia Roadtests

Everyone always asks me how their car is supposed to perform, so this section is for them! Here are the original roadtests from the makers of Car and Driver, Road and Track, and the others to come... with FULL SPEC SHEETS.
Just finding these babies is a challenge, and I usually have to go to microfiche/film. If you've got an original, or know where a test was printed, please let me know and i'll try to get it up. Happy motoring...
