Standard windshield rake

Speedster Std windshield rakeTake a look at this profile, then the Red Speedsters profile- The angle between the door top and the windshield post is about 2.5 degrees different. If you can't see it,  print the pictures, draw a long line at the door top and the rear of the windshield post. Get out your protractor or adjustable triangle and measure the difference. What it means is the car has rolled over or the body structure has moved during a major restoration (complete floor etc.). I can remember in the early 80's seeing a Carrera Speedster at a shop rolled over on a concrete floor to more easily replace the entire pan structure! Look at all the Bringatrailer pics too, you will see how poorly the lower rubber fits the Bottom windshield trim too. Not being argumentative, just trying to inform- Guy

Just wanted to let anybody hunting a Speedster that Ebay listing 11382975906 is a scam, the perp pulled the info directly off of bring a trailer https://bringatrailer.com/list...he-356a-speedster-5/ . The car also has a very odd windshield rake which makes it unmistakable. Take the time if you can to report it before somebody gets ripped off.

Seems like a popular car that get spammed

hey, who uses our photo from the black vintage speedster! this is our car we imported to switzerland and you can not use our photo!

thats a NO-GO!

Sorry, guys, I think you're right on the facts, but wrong on the law.  A poster may relinquish some ownership rights when he/she posts photos online, and shouldn't object to the photos being republished, but the law is clear: under most circumstances, the person who takes the photo has a copyright to that photo, and doesn't lose that copyright merely by posting it online.

Public domain photos fall into rigid categories.  Photos on SOC are not public domain.  A "public domain" photo is different from the facts in this matter in that there is no copyright on a public domain photo, and anyone may use, copy, or distribute the photo for any purpose, commercial or otherwise.  An interesting facet of the internet is that photos posted online are controlled more by the site than the photographer, since most sites demand terms of service that the photo owner continues to own the copyright, but gives the site a license to distribute them.  I can't recall what boilerplate release we all signed when we joined speedsterowners.com.

Mention of the "fair use" doctrine is also misplaced on these facts.  In the US, the fair use doctrine has a four-point test: 1) the purpose of the use, i.e., is there any new element; was value added; 2) what is the nature of the copyrighted work, and was it published or not; 3) was a minor or major portion of the work republished; and 4) what was the effect of the use, i.e., did it decrease its commercial value.  The defense of fair use is irrelevant.
