I grew up with tales of the Porsche and VW's that my father owned. Perhaps this was how the old car bug was passed on to me, or perhaps it was genetics. When my father was in college he had a couple Porsche 356's and a Karmann Ghia at his fraternity, when I was in college I had a line of VW's in front of my apartment building. So, I am thinking that we are genetically inclined to this silliness. Included below are some of the stories that my father told me about the Porsche and the times he had with it from 1967 to 1974.

If you want to laugh and learn about Porsche 356's go to The Maestro's website and order one of his books. Or at least read some of the stories linked on his site. When I got back into VW's a couple years back I began tinkering with my father's 356 as well. Within a year of reentering VW and Porsche world my favorite VW magazine went under, but worst of all Harry Pellow passed away. I was heartbroken and saddened that we now live in a world without someone with his knowledge and sense of humor. As the Maestro always said," Keep the 356 Faith!" full lace wigs uk
