Films: The Million-Mile Porsche 356

The Million-Mile Porsche 356

It takes a lot of driving, work, and a little bit of luck to achieve nearly a million miles in one car. Guy Newmark has been driving one car for forty-five years, a beautiful blue 356, and he has no thoughts of driving any other. After a million miles, Guy finds himself almost sad when he pulls the car into the garage, so he sometimes invents errands in order to keep on driving. With a car still as fun to drive as the day it rolled off the assembly line, this is easy to see why.

This video about the 356 inspired me to buy a 1962 356b just recently.

Wow! This is why I love Petrolicious. I watched this over and over. A great tribute to Porsche and their owners.

Fabulous story about a terrific little 356. I’m also available for Blue’s Birthday Party… just sayin’.

Wondering whether I can run a 356 as my daily driver now?!

Awesome video, awesome car, awesome story. I just love to hear ownership stories like this, and what a great-looking car, too. Very glad to hear he got it back after the theft.

Another great video on Petrolicious. I love the idea of a big party to celebrate the Blue’s 50 Birthday. I am planning to get my ’66 Porsche 912 restored in time for it’s 50th, celebrated by a drive to Pittsburgh for the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix.

Thats just awesome. I wish to do the same with my classic one day. I really admire people who go out and put miles on their cars – not keep them locked up.

What a great story… Guy your father was a man of good taste, I’m sure he would be pleased that you’re still running and enjoying the car.

Wow, what a story and what a car, probably not a better advert for Porsche ownership. So pleased it was found after the recent theft.
