DerWhite's 356 Wrecks & Barn Finds!



It is truely amazing, that cars we love so much can come to this!

We all talk about beautiful 356 Porsches, restored to the finest detail, sparkling and shiney with rechromed parts and new paint. We all go to shows called Concours to see these masterpieces of obsession, and dream of the time when our 356 will be as beautiful. We all go to great extremes to find perfect parts to rechrome, replate, and repaint to perfection. Here are some that 356 Porsches that weren't treated so well! Maybe some of them will have a chance!
