Well it's a clean wiper for sure. Worthy of photography.

Here's mine. Nice long drive at first light on our nation's birthday. No cars really or much traffic. Just the music from the engine and the sunrise.

Hadn't had the car out in a couple of weeks so she needed a good cruise.

Playing around out in the sun after spending the 4th working with the carbs to cure some issues with a clogged needle valve.

I've decided to place it in the Bonham's auction at The Quail Lodge in Monterey next month. Its time for it to get a new caretaker and I just recently received the FIVA certificate from teh Historical Vehicle Association that will help ensure that the car has the historical provenance that I hope will convince the new owner to preserve the car in its 1957 configuration and refrain from trying to "return it to stock configuration" as one potential buyer inquired a few years ago. I figure California is where we'll find out what the original outlaw Porsche is really worth.
