Restoring the "Green Goddess"

#1 Post by Lisa Antonino » Wed Feb 14, 2018 5:53 pm

Irish Green 1964 356 C bought in 1974, driven hard for 12 years, taken apart and stored in garage until March 2017. Body work completed November 2017, upholstery in progress, engine rebuild in progress. Plan to get back on the road for Porsche Rennsport Reunion at Laguna Seca September 2018.

Congrats and welcome to the Forum. Lots of Green/Fawn action recently. Both Paul Hatfield and Bill Waite are currently redoing the same color combo. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=44984 and viewtopic.php?f=1&t=44885 You do however need to post a picture of your head and torso poking out of the engine compartment for Vic Skirmants:>)
1965 356C There is never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over.

Long standing joke about both those pictures. I was pulling Vic's leg and he was pulling Gordon's.
