Owner Notes: It states on the log book 25th anniversary model. Is this usual? I know it denotes the 25th year of Karmann Works. Any info would be helpful.... [Ed. note: First I've heard of this. Karmann began in 1901 and their contract with VW began in 1949… both of which are beyond the 25-year mark by 1980. The 25th Anniversary in 1980 would put the year as 1955; Ghia production began, millionth Beetle built, and VWoA was formed… only significances for 1955 I could find. Perhaps it was dealer anniversary?]Show More

By the way, I love your site! According to your story about seeing a 1980 or 1981 Silver Rabbit with a black top and wanting that car... pretty sure that's the model year and color combo I have. I saved this one from the junkyard and over time plan to restore it. Verrry slowwwwly.Show More
