DerWhite's 356 Wrecks & Barn Finds! Part 2!

 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 the shows called Concours to see these masterpieces of obsession, and dream of the time when our 356 will  be as beautiful. We go to great extremes to find  those 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, but that would require a miracle of effort and single-mindedness!
