Porsche 356 Convertible Dream Project

One of my long term dreams in life is to own a beautiful old Porsche. I haven’t yet decide which model or just how old it will be, but a convertible ehem… sorry, roadster really does sound quite nice. It doesn’t necessarily have to be super fast, but it will need to be as functional and nimble as it was when it was new.

1948 Packard Convertible

About 18 years ago, I went to Florida to visit my grandparents. While we were down there, my dad and I escaped from the rest of the family for a bit, and found ourselves at a local junkyard. I remember very little about that day, except for a glorious pair of convertible Packards . . . → Read More: 1948 Packard Convertible
