This is cool...
Makes me sad though, that my wife & I just missed out on the private sale of a 1956 pre-A Speedster here in our area. Friends of the family,... but the sale price just bumped up higher than we could afford. Gotta have it $$, to play with it I guess.
It was a cool car too, since it fit in that very narrow window where Porsche switched when they did their end-of-year vacations. As history research has given me a glimpse into that time frame in history, I understand that prior to the Fall of 1956, they use to take their vacations in the Oct / Nov months (verses after '56 when they started taking it in Aug / Sept). So this particular car was built in early Dec 1955, so it has all the pre-A hardware on the car, but the vin shows it as a '56. pretty cool.
Ahh well. C'estLaVie. My wife & I would have LOVED to one that one.
