Trade: 1994 Mazda Miata + $$$ for Karmann Ghia

My Miata has been a faithful daily driver for a couple of years. But
now it has a torn top, worn head gasket (leaks some oil), and belts
that'll need replacing sooner or later. It still looks good, and I
still drive it to work every day while watching fluid levels. I'd much
rather it go to a caring home than drive it into the ground any
further.
However, I'm a former Beetle owner, and I've had an itch for another
aircooled automobile - and for a Ghia ever since I was 10. So, if
anyone out there has a Ghia they'd like to trade, I'll offer up my
Miata plus money to even out the deal. I'm looking for a car with
strong rockers / heater channels, non-corrupted wiring, and road legal
in the state of California (I live near Newport Beach). A good nose and
uncut dash would be a plus. :-)
The Miata is red and has 112K; was told by mechainc it has no rust
problems on the underbody. Email me at snipped-for-privacy@hotmail.com Thanks!

You would do well to post this on rec.autos.makers.vw.aircooled. That is the aircooled VW group I frequent, as I own a '73 Beetle. If I had a Karman Ghia I would snatch up your car fast in a trade, but I would need to find a way to tow it back to good ol' New Mexico. Anyway, if you are interested in a '73 Standard Beetle instead!...... Porsche 914 rims, front and rear 3/4" sway bars, 185 and 205 rubber front and rear, strong 1600 engine, solid body but needs a paint job.
Just kidding. I don't want to give up my baby. Good luck with your search!

D'oh - I totally forgot about rec...aircooled. They helped me source front-end parts for my `65 Bug a few years back. Thanks for the reminder!
