The second edition of this book continues the restoration of a 356 Porsche to driver level condition. This book does not spend time or money creating the “perfect” 356, and does not necessarily search for NOS (new old stock) replacement panels if a reproduction panel or patch is appropriate; but the book strives to give you a restoration that will be correct, admired and driven. This second edition provides more detail and contains additional comments to assist those restoring a 356 which was purchased disassembled. This second edition follows the restoration of a 1957 sunroof coupe from the time of purchase to the first drive. Additionally, detailed comments are provided from vendors, such as media blasting, painting, and upholstery.
Seit über 100 Jahren machen Automobile unabhängig. Eines macht seit seiner Geburtsstunde eine Generationen von Autonarren abhängig: der Porsche 911. Kaum ein anderes Fahrzeug strahlt eine ähnliche Faszination aus wie er. Scharen von Automobilbegeisterten drückten sich seit seiner Präsentation auf der IAA 1963 in Frankfurt an seinen Scheiben die Nasen platt, und es gab kaum einen unter ihnen, der nicht vom eigenen 911 träumte. Für Porsche entwickelte er sich zum Dauerbrenner und für die Automobilindustrie zum Trendsetter. Die Erfolgsgeschichte des Elfers dauert nun schon über 40 Jahre an, und ein Ende ist nicht in Sicht. "Faszination 911" zeigt die Entwicklung des Heckmotorsportwagens mit dem einzigartig fauchenden Sechszylinder-Boxermotor von der Entwicklung über die Markteinführung und diversen Evolutionsstufen bis hin zum aktuellen wassergekühlten Jubiläumsmodell >40 Jahre 911

A great little sports car race took place on an island in Lake Erie, offshore of Sandusky, Ohio. The drivers came on ferry boats to compete for silver cups in an age when there were no sponsors and no prize money. The drivers were car salesmen, stock brokers, engineers, printers, etc. Often, the cars they raced were those they drove as daily transportation: MGs, Porsches, Triumphs, Alfas and others. In this well-illustrated history (full color throughout the ebook edition), drivers, officials, mechanics and spectators share their stories. The text paints a vivid picture of the sports car racing scene in post-war America.
