You will appreciate this photo of my father at Marlboro Motor Raceway, probably '61 or '62. I have that helmet sitting on my bookshelf.We've been working on this for the past week to get it ready for a customer.

The shop built this 356 Porsche speedster kit as a demo car years ago and recently sold the car. The new owner wanted some changes, so we repainted the whole car as well as painted the gumballs with the 23 (the same number that James Dean had on his speedster), the pegasus on the fenders, and the stripes on the fenders to his requests. It's all paint - not vinyl - and buried in clear. He also bought all of the badging - some of it gold plated - to make it really pop. It's got a 2220cc VW engine in it that is a monster for such a light car.
I have no idea an neither does he. He owned a total of 11 Speedsters. Bought 'em, raced 'em, sold 'em. Had a '66 911, and a 912.Any idea of whatever happened to ol' 155?
