I loved the sense of community with this restoration and the wonderful father and son partnership that brought this wonderful little Porsche back to life. A delightful tale.
Bravo et merci pour cette émouvant Témoignage, qui résonne pour moi comme une piqure des rappel pour ne pas oublier les années passé avec mon père et mon fils, tous deux disparu, a rénover notre 356 et notre Cox découvrable de 62 ! Au plaisir de se revoir un jour amitié Alain
great dad-son restoration history! congrats!
So awesomely charming and beautiful. ,,, and it’s a Porsche – who’da thought.
Is that Philip Glass in the background? Blends in nicely.
Around 3:10 the themes do get very like Glass don’t they. Somehow I think that this isn’t Phil Glass: this is someone reaching to his harmonies and rhythms.
Relax Franz. Life is too short as it is.
Petrolicious, you’re killing it these days! Awesome video. Great story. Beautiful car.
I’m guessing that hub wrench/puller that is being used at the start of the video was fabricated by the subjects, beautiful work…and the 356 isn’t bad either;-)
The 356 is pretty amazing. They said, credibly, that they have 800 hours of work in a bare metal, rotisserie mount, chassis restoration. And all the numbers match.

A story I can only hope to repeat with my children. Profitez de chaque kilometre les gars!

PS; See my other reply to you below .
GREAT STORY…Drive long and prosper!
A fascinating car . Not quite a restoration but not a resto – mod either . So perhaps a period correct resto – mod ? No matter what you call it though that is one of the tastiest 356’s I’ve seen in decades .
Lovely job isn’t it? And the community of people who joined together to do the work is also quite special.
Yes I love how the whole vibe is 50s-ish. Too bad about the sticker on the door . . . Heuer didn’t become TAG Heuer until 1985!
@ Casual Observer – re; Tag Heuer sticker . Hence using the term resto- mod while tempering it slightly with the phrase ‘ period correct ‘ e.g. Its a resto mod with an early 60’s ( if you’re going to be pedantic make damn sure you’re a 100% correct ) vibe . Suffice it to say the TG decal takes nothing away from the car’s overall aesthetic while adding a bot of the personality of the owners . e.g. ” Stock is a can of beans on a shelf ” ( Big Sid Biberman ) and pedanticsim is for the… Read more »
