Not a Ghia fan myself, but there seems to be a strong style resemblance of this late 1950's Borgward Isabella Coupe and the Karmann Ghia.

Cover over the front of this car :shock:

Well - the story goes that Mrs Borgward wanted a Karmann Ghia, and for obvious reasons, Mr Borgward wasn´t too happy about that. So he built the Isabella coupe. Anything for a quiet life, eh chaps?
