I had a chance to meet Bonnie, the original owner of this 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster.

She and her Family were a delight, and were kind enough to share their story with us here at khakis. 

This car served as the family’s sole form of transportation at the time. Even so, this classic looks as brilliant as ever.

She was also a big fan of our red deerskin vest, so all in all, she was pretty awesome.

1955 Porsche 356 Continental
" 1955 marked the last year of production for the Porsche pre-A 356 (1950-1955) and the 25th anniversary of the German company.  For this model year, Max Hoffman, the principle importer of Porsches into the US at the time, convinced Porsche to use a name instead of a number.  He was convinced that Americans wanted to buy cars with names like, "BelAir" or Fairelane.  So in the spirit of American marketing, Porsche began putting a “Continental” script on the fenders of this model. This 1955 Coupe (#52866) is a very early Continental.  It was the 21st car built and was finished on December 14, 1954. The Kardex confirms that the car is a numbers-matching example with Engine number 33975 and transmission 47774 HF5. The 1955 Continental of VIN 52866 has been completed and well received at the 2012 Quail Motorsports gathering. In many ways, this was as challenging of a restoration as the recent Gmund. There was as much research and it was near impossible to find original Pre-A Parts. It will be fun showing this car next year with our special book that we compiled on 1954-55 year model 356′s.
