    That's got to be one of the nicest 356's I have ever seen! The headlight covers, Fuchs wheels, louvers, are all executed perfectly. I never knew about the "continental" thing either, very interesting anecdote.

    Such a great car, and the owner appears pretty cool also. The essence of motoring, IMO

  • Mr. Griffin mentions Max Hoffman in the video. Hoffman also became the importer of BMWs for the U.S., and conceived and named the BMW Bavaria, precursor to the 3.0, grandfather of the 530i. I learned to drive in my dad's '73 Bavaria, and later bought that car from him.

  • That is Porsche perfection, interesting history to the car as well. I found this beauty hidden in the corner at Goodwood Festival of Speed...it was traded in for a VW Golf in the early 80's!

    I have had the good fortune to meet Jack and see that car in person. It is an amazing car. The car was restored by Roy Smalley (Eurowerks -- Campbell, Texas). I have gotten to know Roy and his work and I can say that he is one of the best Porsche restorers in the country bar none.
