I have tried going through Quebec and New Brunswick with the plate tag numbers without luck. I have contacted Porsche many times without response. As known, I recently received the vin number 11560 from a guy in Austria who claimed a secret source at Porsche, however, the woman at Porsche in Georgia did not think it was correct because that car was sent to Toronto and did not have my dad's name. I've heard it was Robert. I've talked with Jeff Zwart, but he wanted a COA to proceed. Anyway, it's been a bat chase. Ever try to catch a flying bat? There is a simple trick. I'm hoping to find the simple trick to getting copies of the letters my father MUST have sent Ferry Porsche in 1951. That is my goal. Also hoping Porsche might have photos of the car since it was so custom built for my father. Ferry, I'm sure, was a bit annoyed when my father did not race the car as intended.
Also, I am picking up my build in California this early April to drive across the country on my Quantum Run 356. While there, I hope to talk to Freeman Thomas and convince him to ask the right person at Porsche. He must know someone. But I can see that even on this forum my word has been doubted. If you knew me, you would know that is simply absurd.
I joined the group hoping to find someone with enough information and intelligence to help me in my search. I'm sure once the movie comes out someone will appear who will know if the letters and photos exist.
My build is not a kit car. It is a custom created replica where I only improved those things that I think Porsche would've also changed if they built a 356 now. In point of fact, Reutter built all the cars I've ever been interested in, not Porsche. When Porsche wanted to cheapen the 356, William sold out. But I'm sure you know this. Thanks for being helpful and open-minded, which seems rare these days. A friend of mine owned some of the rarest and original 356 Carreras. He sold them because he was disappointed in the kind of person who was now collecting these cars. Times change and culture changes. Nothing stays the same. If you place my name Eric Green in Google along with Time Diptychs, you will se a body of work I did on this fact. Cheers!
I'd rather drive a plastic junker than be a prig.
