Its a funny little story about how we came across Craig Johnston-White’s, fantastic 1963 Type 34 (also known in the UK as the Karmann Ghia – Razor Edge).

We’d first seen this car many a moons ago in UltraVW magazine were it was featured in belgium and then owned by BBT (we’ve still got the magazine upstairs.)
We’d been checking out some rides online and then we spotted this on gem on instagram. We had seen it a few times before and followed Craig to see what he was ‘getting upto with it’. We messaged a few times to see what he was up to with the ride and the answer was “Mmm not much, its been parked up a while, it would be nice to get going again”. A few messages later and we found out that Craig was moving to our neck of the woods all the way from sunny England into the mists of South Wales ( FYI – yes, Wales is a country next to, not inside of England!).
We couldn’t believe that this super-rare original-paint slammed dream of a car was on its way, well almost, as it hadn’t been moved for a good few years. With a bit a saving and a visit to air-cooled specialist Ian in E’s Autos to spin his magic on (and really sort it he did!). The now nicknamed ‘ROTHFINK RAZOR’ was sitting pretty in the Rothfink Industries lockup, tucked away with our motor – The Rustbus.
Since owning the razor, Craig really has put his mark on the car, in more ways than one. He’s slammed it to perfection, fitted a slamwerks 4in narrowed beam and put 2 stickers on the windows! On a serious note this car is special! All the Craig’s work has been done right and it looks spot on, stopping everybody in their tracks to admire the sleek slammed profile of the Rothfink Razor.
