1962 twin grill roadster coming out of a 20 year garage slumber. The owner bought the car back when he was in his teens and had his father take it away from him because of too many tickets. Bummer... but the good news is that the owner held onto it, through ups and downs and now is getting it back on the road.

Amazing car! Sticker on the license plate shows 1962 last registered. I would love to have that car to restore and enjoy. Tony Aprile.

Tony - I don't think you're alone, however this one is going to be just driven as-is and enjoyed.

Some pics from the past three weeks or so. Jack and Kerry got a 59 Convertible D back on the road after sitting for 10+ years. We also had a fun visit from Mike @ Aircooled Auto in Ohio; there is a write up on him and his car in Panorama. For all the 2015 Xmas party pics click: here.

I'm going to make my last post in this thread for 2015 by adding some pics of Jack's personal car, affectionately given the name The Appaloosa. I hope everyone has a Happy New Year's Eve and stays safe tonight. Here's to hoping even more 356's get back on the road in 2016! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray!

Matt Hummel stopped by the shop for an oil change and some carb tuning. Some of you may know him from the Petrolicious video: Against the Grain.

At the shop this afternoon. I changed it to black and white for an old school look, just like the cars.

Been busy at the shop lately. See this thread regarding a reproduction Golde cloth sunroof that Jack and I are working on:

Golde / Webasto - Folding cloth fabric sunroof

Jack and Kerry were recently dialing in a Meissen Blue Convertible D. Such a pretty color, but I thought that Meissen Blue looked a little soft (still gorgeous though, don't get me wrong), however I was curious to see what a wheel change might do to the overall look of the car, so I grabbed an American Racing Magnesium Torque Thrust wheel and strategically placed it next to the car just for kicks. What a difference a wheel change can make.

Egads Trevor, what were you thinking? Sorry, to mine eyes it really looks all wrong. Sticks out like a sore thumb. Well, not the feedback you anticipated. And, I'm not even a purist, well, if its Porsche original, anything could work.

I think the Champagne yellow along with the interior looks very warm in person, which is hard to capture in the pics.

Ok Trevor, Looking over some of the your postings above, where would the faithful find a set of those roll-over rockers that allow one to tilt their projects onto their sides, so as to more easily reach the underside which needs so much attention? I've been working on my back quite long enough, those roll-over devices look pretty useful. And yes, all of the fluids that could move about with gravity must be secured or removed to prevent another fine mess one would create from such a mis-adventure.

Wouldn't you be worried about the car going out of alignment if you put it up on it's side then did body work?

Not really, being a coupe and all of the rot already having been removed/replaced with appropriate panels, its pretty stout, and I would be able to work on all the areas under there that need further attention.
