Hello and thank you for your reply. That's a concern, actually driving the vehicles in question. The driver's here in South Florida are absolutely horrible. I've been hit from behind twice in ten years time. Both times it was someone on a cell phone. Both times they has no insurance. Thankfully I wasn't hurt too badly. The accidents occurred in a Cadillac and a Mustang. I shudder to think of a 356 being hit like that. LOL
I know a many who had a 550 back in 1964 or so. He paid $2500 or something around there for it. Which was for the time good money. I've seen old ads for Speedsters in the early 80s between $15k and $30k. Which in today's dollars is $40k to $70k or so according to the inflation calculators online.
Being 40 years old myself I would not have had any chance at such a thing. By the time I got into a position financially speaking to buy one they had left low earth's orbit. Looked again and they're on their way to Mars. LOL what a game right?
I have seen a few replicas at cars and coffee events but not an original as of yet. I'd happily pay for a ride in either one.
