I'm glad I'm not alone in my delusional fantasy. I've been messing with cars for a long time. I do all of my own maintenance except engine and transmission rebuilds.
I've got to say, I don't find realistic or accurate information "negative." Negative is for batter terminals as far as I'm concerned. 😄
I don't so much care what the Porsche purist think of a replica. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... right ?
We could blame them for paying so much for such antiquated and slow cars can't we? Hahaha! Thus pricing out the true sicko people like us from scratching the itches we are forced to live with.
I'm going to look around and see about things. I'll be in LA later this year. There's a couple of builders there. I think there are a couple of 356 and 500 reps for rent too. I'll probably rent one and drive it for a few days on proper roads in proper weather. A far cry from this flat wasteland or humidity and misery here.
This place is great. So many forums and car communities are terrible. They take it all much too seriously at times. Not here. We seem to know that we need a certain help and that help is a 356 in any guise so long as it is ours. I'll join the club asap.
