Not a bad idea considering the market value of a 356A/B these days..Speedsters cost nearly 50% more than coupes..

On second thought..its nice to see connoisseurs spending money and time on things that deserve it...all i have to say is "LUCKY RELATIVES"..

Hey Karl...Don't get any ideas mate....

amatmo the current owner is very passionate about his cars. no expense is going to be spared to restore it to glory. work is currently going on on the car. its been a year now so i guess the car is not in the condition shown in the photo.

Actually I took that photo in April this year (2007), so there is still a long way to go. But yes, they did say they were restoring her.
