The '76. I'm guessing the modifying might be a madness. Especially if you have money to blow.

Probably can't say that I've been mad for as long as you guys, but I'm doing all I can to get there

I've always wondered about the gender. I've always called it the beast.

Most everyone here is used to a Turbo. This afternoon I gave an old friend for a ride. His last one was as a stock car in 86 or 87. 3 different builds later he gets the dog and pony show ride. He thought he was going to hurl. So it must have been a good ride.

The "madness" can be partialy defined by the sense that it is going to be a good day if one is going to drive it. It can be further defined by the idea that even if you wern't going to drive it, it's a good day because you could.

I have a lift it sits on about 99% of the time about 6 feet up in the air. The 356 parks underneath. The nose is forward so when I go into the garage there she is suspended in space ready to launch out the garage door. Still cool looking after all these years.

Nice '76! It's amazing that it's timeless. I would put the 356 on a lift instead and drive a 930 more often. But I admit that I've never been in a 356 so what do I know.

Amazingly the front hood of the 356 is a inch or so higher. The garage door only clears the hood of the 930 by about an inch where it comes to a stop. I've actually made the 356 somewhat of a dd again.
