    Would anyone be interested in a Porsche 356 speedster thread?

    I've been working on the above for the better part of 4 years now and after seieng the high end stuff on here, I thought that it would be safe if I asked first before posting anything.

    My first build was a vw based dune buggy and you can't get any simpler than that. I would think that the speedster would fall in between our builds and the dune buggy in difficulty. I really like the speedster and based on the vw floorpan with its Spartan interior it looks to me like a straight forward build. I would like to see your build.

    I would be interested too. Ironic, my wife saw a nice silver one with a black top...... she says "That's what I want, can we get one of those?" I'm a wuss though, A/C is a must for use in Florida.

    that's good to know, though it makes me wonder how much power it saps from a typical VW motor.

    You can use something like a vintage air system, or seeing as though you are in Florida just give Gilmore Enterprises a call http://www.gilmore-enterprises.net/ . They are in Clearwater . They will give you any info you need
