This is the shot we all hope to see when driving around.

That is unless you see a replica....I've had this happen twice in Jacksonville. You get just enough of a glimpse that your hopes get up. Then reality sets in & you discover you've found a plastic speedster :x

Anyway, back to your pic, What year is the Speedster? & is it a Carrera?

Yes Adam, what did you find there? Looks like a Speedster windshield tension rod, but on the passenger side it looks like a cab-like body-color pillar rather than a Speedster frame. And what's with the SNOW?

Actually this was a staged shot. That is the front of my shop. It was a 59 Cab I was selling, last Spring, still some snow.

As we rolled it back in the shop I grabbed the camera.

But it does make you dream....

Yeah, I remember that one, didn't you have to buy the church to get the car?
