29 May Ghia’s Lightweight SWB
Okay we found out that this awesome piece is owned and built by Michael Ghia. Haven’t received any additional info as he holds details petty close to his chest. Will let you know as soon as we find out more. Until then enjoy the additional photos Michael sent me. ” Michael Ghia Thanks guys. Yes, the Green one is my Lightweight Syncro. It’s still all T3 Syncro underneath, just slightly re-arranged 😉 Check out my profile for more photos and details”.
