I'm new to this. In my quest to find a hardtop for my 356 speedster from Vintage, I've come across this site....and find this really exciting. There's a helpful bunch of people with an awful lot of knowledge....what a goldmine
I've been in Germany [work related!] since end of 2016. Got about 15 months to go, then we go back to Colorado. Got my Vintage widebody speedster with me...its a lot of fun to drive around the countryside using the "backroads" in my off-duty time...as long as the weather is good! And "...as long as the weather is good..." is precisely the issue . Point is that the weather is rarely good...or rather reliable. When one gets caught in the rain or a sudden drop in temperature in a speedster, hmmm....well, y'all get the point.
Of course I had gone to Kirk first to see if I could get a top from him. after all he had built the car to begin with. But he was already in the process of selling the business. He referred me to the guy who bought Vintage, but apart from asking a a pretty penny for it, getting a response, respectively a commitment out of him is challenging to say the least, thus it all came to naught.
Back to square one! Still looking for a good hardtop. Maybe one of y'all would know someone who builds and sells them. Shipping wouldn't be a problem either....I could find a little space in one of the containers we frequently ship from the US to Germany.
Any tips and leads would be much appreciated!
