Chris & Elissa's Speedster

I had been coveting a Porsche for a number of years - well to be honest since I was about 13. I remember admiring and wishing I could be the owner of a "bathtub" Porsche many years ago. Then I got interested in the 1989 911 Turbo (due to a Remington razor ad on TV). Figured I would be happy with a 911SC. Even contemplated an old 911 Targa. Anything with a great silhouette. The shape of classic lines on classic cars always intrigued me. But Porsche always won me over with its stubby body, stove-pipe headlights, wide rear end, whale tails, James Dean image, etc.

Our first 356.

This 1961 356B T5 Hardtop was purchased in Germany by a U.S. Navy Supply Corps Officer who imported the car into San Diego, CA in 1962. The car remained in the same family for 50 years until it was purchased in 2012. We recently purchased the car from a wonderful Porsche collector. The car’s new home will be up in the Skagit Valley with two very happy first-time 356 owners.

Bill's Cab

Purchased in 1989 from the son of the original owner.  Nut and bolt restoration took 5 years, spread over 10 due to an expat gig in Norway in the middle.  All numbers matching with original colors etc.  Only done about 8,000 miles since the restoration was complete in 2000, mainly due to 12 years of expat gig in China since then.

The Faux Cam

59 A cab purchased in Anchorage, Alaska from the elderly lawyer who had owned her since about 1980.  Not much rust, 60B super replacement motor from Stoddards supplied in 1982 to replace rod-thru-case original motor.  Decided I did not want to do a show car restoration so decided to create my version of a 59A GS Carrera.  See this thread on the Registry - http://forum.porsche356registry.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=27292&hilit=faux+cam.
