Porsche Convertible and Owner Happier to Cruise Than Race

Porsche Convertible and Owner Happier to Cruise Than Race

I ran into this beautiful example at an auto show outside Stockholm in 2008. The owner was an old man who had been driving and restoring 356s for decades, a true Porsche connoisseur. Close to mint condition, narrow original body and the sexy black optional sports seats. Delivered new in Sweden, known owner history–and only 45,000 miles on the meter, bingo!...

In 2002 I began searching for another V4. The Saab-feeling had really gotten to me and I was out to find an example in top condition. I searched the marked and put several ads in Swedish car magazines. There was some response but none was up to my standards. In September 2004, however, things changed and by November the car was in my garage.

My father was a race car driver and could race anything on four wheels, I think that's how I learned my love for cars. Since then, I haven't looked back. This is my fifth Mini and I bought it from a man about to begin a full rebuild. But the car had no rust at all and the chassis numbers are intact on the floor! So I bought it. I just love the classic look, history, handling, sound, and usability of the car.

I enjoy the satisfaction and happiness others get when seeing and asking questions about the car. I routinely get a “thumbs up” from other drivers on the road and many want me to roll down the window, just to ask about the car. When I drive the car, I feel like I’m back in time, to the year 1967. It’s a feeling one just can’t get driving a modern day car.

In my final year of high school, we were required to undertake a final senior project that would be year-long and had to focus on a peronsal goal and interest. Some of my classmates chose to skydive, write poetry, learn guitar...I chose to do something I always wanted to do–restore a car.

I know that many purists are against the mods, still I decided to give it a personal touch and for all the modifications I have used new parts in order to preserve the originals and have the ability to return the car to its original state whenever I decide to. More than anything else, I love driving it on summer evenings through the city with very low traffic while the sun sets.

When I was twenty-four I bought my first motorcycle: a 1972 Honda CB750. This bike did two things for me. It completely sold me on the quality and absolute value of a Honda motorcycle; they are absolutely bulletproof, beautiful, and reliable. Secondly, it hooked me on riding motorcycles for life.

Putting the M5 in for a service actually led me to the 318i. The mechanic I found was a senior member of the BMW Club in Brisbane and chatting with him one day he mentioned that he had to get rid of one of his cars because he'd bought a new X5. I didn't think much about it but when I decided to buy a daily-driver to commute to work, I called him, saw the car that weekend and bought it on site.

The thing I love most about my Super Beetle, is that it fits me. I don’t just mean in a physical sense, but in a philosophical sense as well. On the physical side, I’ve built and modified everything to be just the way I want it. It feels right, like getting into your favourite pair of jeans, and I can’t think of anything else I’d rather climb into on a daily basis.
