maybe, maybe not.

I think with Rod involved in the job, it will be more of an outlaw. We'll see.

I hope not. Did I see them do another 356 a few years ago?
I've been waiting for someone to do this for me. Guess that will never happen though.
Hope who ever owns it will like the results.

well..

Well, it might have not been a purist first choice...but the only mods he did on the car were the bumpers and the back window...which was not such a big deal. Different wheels...and custom paint...that's not destroying...
The custom interior was very nice and a classy choice keeping it stock.
So you really should consider him saving another 356. and judging by the amount of rust and bondo on the car...he did save it..

And there were no chevy or mopar parts on the car...you had to notice they were Porsche parts..

It would be funny to see someone get their Porsche done by him and then just go ballistic. Dude you totally destroyed my car, as a roller it was worth more than what you did to it. Stylistically you have decimated it, you took a valuable classic and managed to turn it into rolling garbage.

Didn't see it, sounds like it is all reversible just doing good rust work would improve the car.

Car was Swiss cheese. Lots of metal work. The build is very cool. Certainly not concours but a great little outlaw.
