Interesting reverse louvers on the coupe, have just seen those on the Emory cars.

Steve - Yes reverse louvers. Craig likes louvers, but wanted to do something just a little different. I have to say I think they came out killer, just the right amount of visual interest and doesn't disrupt the Coupe's body lines. On a Speedster (like yours) I think the standard louver is probably the way to go - but to each their own :D

Norm - Yes, more pics of Craig's "Lucreita" mit sonnendach on page 2 here: Golde / Webasto - Folding cloth fabric sunroof



Happy 2018! Jack and Kerry are working their "get it up and going magic" on a 1956 Coupe that has been off the road for 25~30 years.

A few pics of a car's dashboard that is in the shop. I was thinking how these were once just old sports cars and not worth a pile of dough... And how the modifications that have been made to them over the years are becoming more and more scarce. The trend being, "correct"; which yes, it is important to know how they came from the factory. However, it is so cool to see these 356's modified, most times for practicality.

OK, so who's ready to drill a couple holes in their dash :D

Sweet 62 Notchback finished in Dolphin Grey. The owner has had it in "painted and semi-finished status" in his garage for about 7~8 years and was working on getting it back to a dependable driver. He decided to hit the fast forward button and have Jack and Kerry go through it. Fun little car now and quite striking being a notchback.

I finally made it to Jack's Friday afternoon gathering, it seems like every time I am in Laguna Beach I get there too late to show up. Here's a photo of Jack helping Pete with a part. Nice to see the cars and meet the guys who hang out there.

Hi Steve - Good seeing you too.

Mark Pribanic and his girlfriend Heather made the trip out from Florida this week to attend the Luftgekuhlt show on Sunday. They stopped in to the shop to get some brake work done and address a few other issues.

Hi Trevor, I wanted to make it to Luftgekuhlt, but 350 miles is a long way to go, not as far as Mark drove, and we have the Kelly Park weekend going on in San Jose, and next week is North South in SLO, it was a hard decision to make. Plus I have my 62 coupe up for sale and need to stay close to home.
Steve

Aquamarine metallic Coupe and an Aquamarine Speedster at the shop for some work. Cool to see these two colors next to each other out in the sunlight.

Always love seeing my car's original colour in photos of other cars - that Aquamarine Blue Speedster looks awesome!
Even better when I see them with that red interior as well.

Makes me want to use it even more on my restoration, kind of rare here in AUS.

Thanks!
