Cool stuff I photographed at Spring Fling 2010

















Yeah, I think it's cool to find that people write the oil changes on the underside of the hood. I'm a car guy, this sort of thing is cool to me.

1962 Ghia L 6 4 at Spring Fling






Very cool luggage.




None of the Ghis L 6 4's I came across on the internet search had the round headlights except the Lucill Ball car.
This stylish and luxurious car was outfitted with nearly every imaginable amenity including fitted luggage.
The L6.4 was built atop a custom chassis and used fewer off-the-shelf parts than the earlier Dual Ghia had. Eugene Casaroll decided not to participate in the production, mainly because of health issues, a need to focus on his other businesses, and concerns about the cars high price tag. The L6.4 was made even more luxurious than its siblings and offered for $13,500, nearly doubling the price of the Dual Ghia. Without the backing of Casaroll, the car was never badged as a Dual Ghia. It was built and sold by Carrozzeria Ghia with Farago acting as the American agent. A total of around 25 examples were created.
This 1962 Ghia Coupe estimated value of $175,000 - $250,000.
this Ghia was purchased at the Gooding & Company auction at Pebble Beach in August 2009 for $418,000 accordign to a cool reader who left a comment
