Back to the "King of the Mountain" video. I met a chap named Adam Hughes from Vintage Motorsports of Oregon. We struck a deal for him to build a 356A Speedster that would be powered by 911 drivetrain. I supplied most all of the parts and he did the metal fabrication. Adam is very well respected in the VW community for his restorations.

The 356A chassis would be strengthened with a semi hidden tube frame and the body would get all new sheet metal. Deep Fuchs 15x5.5 fronts & Deep Fuchs 15x6 rears. A new dash panel from Trevor's Hammerworks was also ordered and it is now all coming together. Thoughts for now are Pure Blue, the new Porsche Speedster color!

Note: Adam talked me out of the wide flares like the ones on the movie....said it would scream fiberglass "kit car"!!
