It’s not a 356 but it is an addiction.

This one is super fun to drive and most always does well at the local car shows. E-Code (factory dual quads) 3-speed manual with over-drive:

Very clean! The rear wiper is nice. I have one on my '73 S Targa.

I found this Pierce Arrow walled into a garage where it had rested on blocks since 1952. The owner bought it from the Ringling Estate in 1939 with 9000 miles on it. Even though he had 11 other Pierces he couldn't help driving this one so he built a wall in front of it. We had to remove the wall to get it out. 32,000 original miles and probably the most original Pierce Arrow in the world. Picture in garage where it rested for over 60 years. Next picture is after we cleaned it up - still wears 90% of its original paint!

My '69 XKE roadster seeing the light of day after being in the garage under 2 covers since 1992.
I am in the process of going through the mechanicals to get it running again, then will proceed to the interior and exterior bits.
Stay tuned!!
P.S. bought it in 1971.
