memo from der keyser .......... ,
Well! Back from the Northwoods,
refreshed, revived, restored and ready
to accept the annual milestone of
another REGlSTRY anniversary. Would
you believe this issue marks the end of
five full years of publication? 30 issues?
Maybe "late" a few times, but always
out. I see no reason why volume 6 will
not be better ... more and more are
becoming actively involved.
Take for example the potentially
crippling blow of losing one of our
prime movers, our membership
chairman, Bill Durland. Not only did we
have one, but we had three competent
and qualified individuals express a
desire to fill the position. Choosing one
is the type of problem we need, not
floundering around looking for just any
warm body. It is encouraging ... and
active involvement of more and more
will insure the continuation of the
REGlSTRY into the far distant future.
I am happy to announce that C. Tom
Oerther is our new membership
chairman! Tom's name should be
familiar to all of you: chairman of
Holiday 11, he has been to every Holiday
(only 2 or 3 can make that claim),
originator and sparkplug of the regional
"Cincinnati Bullsession" and is single-
handedly responsible for signing up
almost all of the Ohio Valley members.
Welcome aboard, Tom in your new
The transition period may be a trying
time in that we have 2500 members with
several hundred renewals, frequent
address changes, some lost in the mail
issues, etc., occuring every other
month. Please be patient, because we
really are trying.
For all those that hav'e been patiently
awaiting resumption of the back issue
program: good news! Fruitcake &
Company, purveyors of official 356
REGISTRY authorized products, are
now the administrators of our back issue
program. Not all issues are available at
this time, but many are. Please see their
ad, this issue, for the details.
The Tweeks sponsored swap meet in
Indianapolis was a great success. It has
expanded to the point of outgrowing
their parking lot for next year. It didn't
rain, the sun was hot ... but the beer was
cold. I encourage you to not only
attend, but to participate in the next
swap meet in your area ... but all buyers
and no sellers will be a death blow to a
meet. Remember, your jun k is someone
else's coveted treasure, so pack it up and
take it with you. And in addition, you get
to see lots of your old pals! No swap
meets close by, you say? Get with your
local PCA region and Porsche dealer,
and start your own.
You may consider the following as a
blatant plug, and it probably is ...
however, our art director's unselfish
efforts to the REGlSTRY merit some
small token in return, right? And
besides, the product stands on it's own
merit. If you like Joe Colford, Jr.'s
artwork as seen on several REGlSTRY
covers and throughout the inside pages
for the last couple of years, then you
should consider getting a set of his
drawings as advertised in this issue. They
are good, nicely presented, and best of
all, a real deal at $5.50 a set.
Last call for Holiday V, Hartford, 28,29,
30 September. It's time for all you guys
that have said, "If it's an East Coast
Holiday, why isn't it on the East Coast?"
or "I would attend if it was on the Coast
where I could get some real seafood."
Put your money where your mouth is!
Feature this: a real New England
clambake, New England fall foliage in
full display, (we hope) really on the East
Coast, plus all the usual 356
commaraderie thrown in. Bill Durland
and committee are working very hard to
make sure a memorable time will be had
by all. I'll see you there!
Second call for 1980 Holiday (East &
West) chairpersons. I also would like to
acknowledge the receipt of our first
1980 inquiry from the southeast Atlantic
Coast area. All it takes to get your area
considered for a 1980 Holiday site is to
get your local 356 group together for a
planning meeting, put together a
tenative schedule of events, being as
specific as you can, draft a proposal and
send it to me. The only requirements: 1)
no competitive moving events 2) a
suitable commemorative jacket patch
must be provided. Based on that
complicated framework, only your
imagination should be the limit, right?
December 31,1979 is the cut off date for
proposals, only for your own best
interest, so that the trustees have time to
act on your proposal, giving the
sucessful groups as much advance lead
time as possible for their Holiday.
Remember, each proposal stands on it's
own-no formal presentation is
required or hopefully ever will be.
See you in Hartford!

You might be interested in sharing a portion of a letter received from Fred Moor,
1979 West Coast Holiday chairman: "... we had about 50 Holiday t-shirts left over
which were donated to a local children's charity and were very happily received.
So far I haven't seen little urchins running around in 356 Holiday shirts." Three

"Just a note to let you know that the 356
Campout was a great success. 15 June
found the earlybirds gathered around a
couple tables and a couple beers at Kent
Park. We early ones got to take Al
Bohanon's trivia quiz by the light of the
silvery moon. Saturday morning found
us looking over the cars that had arrived
and meeting a lot of fellow Porsche-
Saturday afternoon Gordon Elliff
(resident restoration expert) and Tom
Bruch (resident mechanical expert and
whiz kid at Bonneville-racing Porsches
of course) put on an informal
techhestoration session. A lot of time
was spent on sheet metal prep and
protection with a lot of input by the
various people there.
Saturday evening we gathered at the
Amana Colonies for dinner. At this time
various winners were announced. Bill
Brown's '57 Speedster was our choice as
the best looking car. His car had just
been reassembled 1 month before.
Yours truly won the trivia quiz, while Cy
Crandell copped honors for the
farthest-from-concours car (putting it
mildly). It must be noted however that
Cy had stayed up all through the night
Friday putting another engine in his car -
then he drove straight through Saturday
to get to the festivities. Tom Bruch by-
the-by, answered incorrectly the
question concerning the true
displacements of the 11,13,15, and 1600
engines, missing on all 4. His excuse was
that he builds so many oversize engines
that he has all these different numbers
wandering around in his head (not to
mention all the various 911 sizes).
Finally it must be noted that if we had
given an Iowa Corn Cob Award
(Gasohol, you know) that it would have
gone unanimously to Al Bohanon for his
fine effort in putting this fete together:
about 90% of the various events and
little details were taken care of by Al. We
owe him our thanks for an enjoyable
weekend." Skip Montanaro
"I am very interested to receive the 356
REGISTRY and find the articles
contained therein most interesting
indeed. I thought you may be interested
in details of my own Porsche 356. 1
purchased this new when I,was living in
Germany in the mid 60s. I actually
travelled to the factory in Stuttgart with
a local German porsche dealer through
whom I actually purchased the car and
at the factory made my selection of the
various parts and combinations of
accessories that I wanted fitted. The car
was therefore built for me to my
I have been the only owner of this car
since new and apart from changing the
electrical system from 6 volt to 12 volt, it
is virtually as it was originally. I have
recently been restoring this to an as new
condition and although I have not
completed the task yet it is well on the
way. I would have no hesitation in
statlng that it is the finest 356 Porsche in
New Zealand. The special features I had
fitted at the time of purchase are Electric
GOLDE Sliding Roof, Electric Wind
Screen Washers, Wooden Steering
Wheel, Fog Lights, Luggage and Ski
Carrier. To the U.S. market it would be
unusual insomuch as it is right hand
drive. It was built like this in the factory.
The only other change I have made
recently is to install a speedometer
showing kilometres and kilometres per
hour as we no longer use miles in New
Zealand. The genuine reading on the
speedometer is 79,000 kilometres.
I am enclosing a photograph of my car
which could only have been taken in
New Zealand, outside the entrance to a
Maori Pa. This was the Maori word for a
fortified village in which they lived. The
entrance gates were typical of the pre
European time in New Zealand. This
Maori Pa is not in daily use, it is purely
erected as a tourist attraction as to how
the Maoris used to live. Both these
locations are in Rotorua which is a big
centre of Maori population and also the
centre of our thermal activity, boiling
pools, gysers, boiling mud, etc. and is
located in the central North Island of
New Zealand." Barry Owen,
"Putting a "B" steering column into an
"A" coupe and everything is fine except
somehow the dashboard turn signal
indicator is on when it should beoff and
vice versa. Why?" (Letter not signed)
"Re - Richard Williams' inquiry about air
conditioning for the 356. Enclosed is a
copy of a Cary and Driver (December
1961) article that indicated that A/C was
an option. This may be common
knowledge to old 356 enthusiasts, but it
is news to me.
Also, A/C units on aircooled engines
are not "poison". I have a '71 VW that I
bought new with air. It now has over
75,000 miles with no engine problems to
I plan to install A/C on my 356C as
soon as I get it converted to 12 volts. So, I
would be interested in hearing from
Richard on his progress in installing A/C
in his car." Ken Temple, Fayetteville, NC
"As you may recall California went to 7
digit personal plates last year. Like other
Porsche owners that were aware of this
event I spent more then a few nights
dreaming that MY 356 would receive the
coveted PORSCHE plate. So off I went,
$25.00 in hand, to buy my chance at
being the lucky one. A friend that
worked for the Department of Motor
Vehicles was kind enough to inform me
that quite a few other Porschephiles had
also expressed this interest. That put my
chances at 1 in 150 or more ... The
solution came to me in a blinding flash
and seemed logical that most other
people couldn't spell either so why not
transpose S & C and apply for PORCSHE.
Well that's what I did and that's what I
got ... I later found out that over 30
others had the same idea too so I was
more lucky then wise." Gregory
Knowles-Stout, Arroyo Grande, CA

If you have a Zenith-equipped Porsche usin the metal air filter cans, they are
probably loose. If they are loose, they can aaua 7 ly wear a hole in the top oft he carb
or a gas line. Also, the right one can rotate and keep the throttle linkage from
returning. OK, so you're aware of this, but you've tried tightening the slotted bolt
for the clamp with a screwdriver, and thecleaner isstill loose. Note that the bolt also
has a hexagonal head. Snug it down with a socket. Don't overtighten! Previous
overtightening is probably the cause of your problem in the first place. If you can't
get the socket to grab the bolt head because the clamp is distorted enough to keep .
the socket from fully engaging the bolt, put a flat washer or two under the bolt head
to space it out. If after all this you find the bolt head is rounded because of the
ever-present problem of "previous owner abuse", grind or file the sides of the hex
until you can get some kind of sock@ on it.
While on Zenith carbs, a ti^ on what
to check if your accelerator pumps
aren't delivering any fuel. If just one of
the two per side is not delivering, check
the nozzle and jet for clogging. Usually
if both are dry, the problem is
elsewhere, although in a rare case
maybe both are plugged. Check the
accelerator plunger for wear - through
at the side, check the pump pressure
valve beneath the plunger for sticking.
Also check the pump suction valve next
to it for sticking. This suction valve has
the same thread size as the plug in the
bottom side of the carb body and I have
seen several carbs where these two
items got switched. Lack of the suction
valve of course permits the plunger to
push the fuel back into the float bowl
instead of through the accelerator
White still on Zenith carbs, I'd like to
say a few words in their defense. To
those who say "toss them away and put
on Solexes", have you ever had your
Zeniths adjusted correctly? I don't mean
only synchronization, but most
importantly float levels and accelerator
pump delivery. You won't find Zeniths
~dling terribly due to worn carb bodies
and throttle shafts, like the Solexes do.
When rebuildkt an engine, you
should always pull t e oil pressure relief
valve plunger and oil by-pass valve
plunger in the timing cover to clean
them. If either one is stuck, take a W
pipe tap and screw it into the open end
of the plunger. Turn the tap until the
plunger breaks loose, and then use the
tap to pull out the plunger.
National racing update: My next race
after Elkhart Lake was at Road Atlanta .
June 10. This was another Bonus
National, with nine 356's representing
the marque. Weldon Scrogham, D.C. ,
region, and Herb Forrest, N.E.
Oklahoma, DNF'd after two laps when .
Weldon's speedster and Herb's roadster
collided in turn one. Bill Allen, Atlanta
region, roadster, was running third
when he spun in turn one and couldn't .'
restart. He did complete enough laps to
be credited with tenth place. Bob Lane,
Atlanta, roadster, was ninth, Bill
Gorman, Atlanta, speedster, was eighth.
Stan Werner, in a speedster from
Tennessee, was seventh. I was running
third when an exhaust rocker arm
broke. I decided to stay on the track and
managed a fifth place finish. Joe Cogbill,
Atlanta, speedster, was fourth, with
John O'Steen of Cincinnati in a
speedster finishing second. Dave Finch
of Ann Arbor, MI, won in a 914.
Next race, Blackhawk Farms in Illinois,
june 17. My roadster was the only 356
there, but did come in first in E,
Production and set a new class record.
The following weekend, June 24, we
were at Indianapolis Raceway Park.
Three 356's were in attendance. Stan
Adams, Cincinnati, in a B cabriolet, was
a DNF. I could only get fifth place, and
John O'Steen ran away with first.
July 8, Mid-Ohio Bonus National.
Four 356's. Stan Adams didn't start
because of a stripped gear. John
Thomson, Ann Arbor, speedster, DNF'd
with an engine problem. I pulled down
sixth, while John O'Steen was relegated -
to third after some clutch problems
forced him out of first.
July 22, Nelson Ledges, Ohio. I was the
only 356 representative for this
Northeast Division National. Came in
second to an MGB after Finch's 914 hit
someone's oil on the final turn and spun
from the lead to a third place.
Come on, you guys, I haven't received
one letter or postcard to tell me how all
the other 356's are doing in this country.
It has been confirmed that Bruce
Jennings has accepted an invitation
to be the featured speaker at the
Holiday V banquet, Hartford,
Connecticut, September 29. He will
be showing a never-seen-publically
30 minute film of his Carrera
Speedster in action, as part of his
presentation. It is almost too late to
register for this last of the year

In this article, I plan to cover several
topics which may be of interest to
REGlSTR Y readers.
"The 911 As A Collector Car"
The 356 'C' series Porsche was
introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt auto
show. A major feature being high-
lighted was, of course, the four wheel
disc brakes of the 356 'C'. There was also
another significant introduction at the
same show - the 911. The 911 was in
production by 1965. If you include 1965
as a production year, the911 has been in
production for 15 years which is only
two less than the 356 series.
What 356 enthusiasts may not realize
is that many 911 owners are already
restoring their early model 911's. The
interest in restoration and preservation
of the 911 at this point in its evolution
and while it isstill a production mode1,is
far higher than it was for the 356series at
a similar point in time. The number of
people who bought a brand new 356
with the primary purpose being to keep
it as a collector car and to drive it very
few miles is extremely small. There are,
however, more than a few people who
have bought 911's to be a collector car
for the future, and who are caring and
maintaining them with that thought in
"The Race Car As An Instant
Not too many years ago, a Porsche
race car that was several seasons old
suffered a substantial amount of
depreciation. Race cars still do show
appreciable depreciation, but a new
economic factor has entered the
market. That factor is the increased
number of people collecting Porsches
and the new hobby of vintageor historic
sports car racing. I know of a number of
almost new (one to two seasons old)
Porsche race cars that have been
purchased by collectors who do not
plan to run them in historic sports car
races. Other recent Porsche race cars,
perhaps four or five years old, have
been purchased by individuals planning
to run them in historic sports car races.
I saw a single turbo 935 entered at the
1978 6 Hour Watkins Glen race which
was driven by Otis Chandler and a co-
driver. I expected to see the car appear
in a year or two in Chandler's collection
as a retired race car, but I was mistaken.
He sold the car to the Dick Barbour
racing team and bought a new 1979
Turbo from the Porsche factory.
"The AFN, Ltd. Parts Sale"
AFN, Ltd. has been the importer of
Porsches into England since the 1950's. I
was recently in London for a few days
and, by chance, happened to be there
the weekend of an unusual sale. AFN
knew they had a fair number of older
parts which weren't selling well and
were taking up needed shelf space.
With encouragement from members of
the Porsche Club of Great Britain, they
decided to have a sale of these parts,
apparently including almost all of their
I was invited to the sale and arrived
early on the first morning of the two day
sale. By the time the doors opened at 10
A.M., there were perhaps 50
enthusiastic buyers waiting. Most of the
parts were spread out on the floor of a
very large room that had been cleared
for the sale. In addition to the 356 parts,
there were also some 911 and 914 parts.
The 356 parts included mechanical
parts, body parts including sheet metal,
and trim pieces. As the sale progressed,
many prizes were found by the buyers.
One individual who was rebuilding a
Carrera 2 engine managed to find some
needed parts and an engine gasket set.
A couple with two small children were
delighted to acquire a Reutter 356
luggage rack. An individual with an
early 356 found the 16 inch wheels he'd
been looking for.
I also managed to find a few desirable
items including a chrome horn ringfora
'B' or 'C' steering wheel, a large supply
of the rubber snubbers which are fitted
to the jack-holding clamps on 356's to
prevent the jack from rattling, the
rectangular sheet metal air channel
plate which runs between the two
heater boxes and which is missing from
most cars, an oil breather for my 'A'
(ever see a new one with no rust
inside?), an accessory kit of spare lamps,
and last but not least, a 3A and 3C close-
The sale was followed by a visit to the
local pub where several of the other
individuals who attended the sale and I
swapped stories about our good finds at
the AFN sale. It will be a long time
before I forget my enjoyable visit to
London. The next time I'm there I may
even have time to do some sightseeing1

Since last we talked I have received a few interesting pieces
of information. It is perhaps unfortunate that the way this
column is written allows feed back to appear usually four
months after initial publication. This will be eventually be
remedied by the completion of all this nonsense planned for
the mid 1980's.
First let me point out that illustration 55a on page9of Vol. 5
No. 5 is in fact the Convertible D/Roadster top frame as this
was unfortunately unreferenced in the text of the article.
I received a letter from Barry Owen of Christchurch, New
Zealand with information and in fact a Xerox of a Golde
Sunroof Catalog. The firm now called Rockwell Golde GmbH
of Frankfurt, West Germany has apparently been quite
cooperative and helpful in supplying parts to him as needed
i-irough the years. However, when our own silver-tongued
legal advisor attempted to acquire some pieces direct he was
referred to: American Sunroof Corp., 18640 Walnut St.,
Southgate, MI 48195.
Also concerning sunroofs I received a letter from Alan
Davis of Long Beach, CA, who owns a '59 Cabriolet with a
factory installed manual sunroof in its removable hardtop. I
have received additional information in the form of a copy of
a 356C accessories manual from Bud West and three more
cars have joined the photo library. I believe I have saturated
the '55 Speedster file, but I'm still short on other models.
I've spoken to a few folks who assert that the lock post on a
Cabriolet is actually wider near the top than that of a Coupe.
This does appear to be so; however, the difference is not
On Coupes this piece below the rear window and above
the deck lid is officially part of the top. As mentioned earlier
the only change in this piece was between T-5 and T-6 3568's
with the change in rear windows and rear lids.
The first place this piece for Cabriolet appears is illustration
31 in the '55 parts book. It appears again in illustration 32 in
the 356 A book. As there is no mention of this in the '53 book I
can only assume that this piece remained unchanged from
1950-1957. The change at chassis 150.001 corresponds tops.
This version remained unchanged throughout the
production of 356C model.
The rear cowl of the Speedster was considerably different
than that of Cabriolet. It was considerably longer and had no
recess for the tack strip. It is shown in illustration 45 in the'55
parts book. In the A parts book two alternate parts numbers
are given, again this seems to indicatea change in numbering
system rather than an actual change in part configuration.
A change is noted by part number at the introduction of
the Convertible D. The change likely has to do with the sha
of the cockpit rear as no other visible change is noted. T r e
3568 Roadster was unchanged from Convertible D.
While the basicshape of various body styles of 356 Porsches
is essentially the same, the contours of the rear fenders are
subtly different. This can be visualized in side view pictures.
The fast-back roof line of the Coupe is integrated into the
rear fender by a more steeply vertical accent than the open
cars. This prevents rear fenders from being easily adapted
between models. Ask the guy who put a Coupe fender on a
Cabriolet. Ask me.
lllustration 18 of the '53 parts manual illustrates the rear
fender of a Coupe. No where in this parts manual is a
Cabriolet fender described. As the top edges as ,well as
contouring of these fenders are radically different one can
only assume this was an omission.
lllustration 30 from the '55 book shows the Coupe fender
which bears the same part number as that of the earlier car.
lllustration 31 shows the Cabriolet fender. Note the
tremendous difference. lllustration 45 shows the Speedster
fender, it is lower due to the sloping door as well as very
different along the top edge. Contoursappear to be similar to
The 356A with its smaller 15" diameter wheels had slightly
altered wheel arch profiles in the rear. These were "opened
up" and allowed a wider rim. The Carrera-Speedster rear
fenders are listed separately and described as having "wire
356A Coupe fenders remained unchanged from 56-59 with
no alternate number listed for Carrera. The drawing,
illustration 51 of the A parts book is nearly identical to that of
illustration 30 in the '55 book. Aside from the wheel arch
there appears to be no significant change.
lllustration 52 from the A parts book shows the early
a Cabriolet rear fender. This was changed at chassis150.001 to
accomodate the new top mechanism and removable
hardtop. This difference can be seen at the top leading edge
of the fender. No changes in contouring were apparent. The
Convertible D rear fender was changed from that of the
Speedster. The difference was likely around the rear cowl as
contours should have been nearly identical.
From illustration 5/5 of the B parts book the difference
from the A is readily apparent, the indentation and hole for
the rear bumper. lllustration 5/6 shows the different fender
for the open car. The Cabriolet was different from Roadster,
again along the top.
The T-6 Coupe illustration (5/5a) shows a different fender.
This was due to the altered rear lid and cowl area. The basic
shape was essentially unaltered. T-6 Cabriolets and Roadsters
were unchanged from their T-5 counterparts in this area.
356C models were identical to T-6 cars.
REAR DECK LID
Rear lids of Coupes and open cars are basically similar in
appearance giving the false impression that they are perhaps
interchangeable. While T-6 bodied cars are quite obviously
different the earlier cars can be confusing. The easy way to
differentiate between them is to look at the inside of the lid.
On an early Coupe lid the hinges mount on that thing that sits
under the grille. Hinges are less than 1 foot apart. On open
cars hinges mount on 2 reinforced struts placed solely for that
purpose. More simply, hinges are more than 1 foot apart.
When one gets to double vent cars the difference in size of
the lids is tremendous, the Coupe being much larger. The
hinge location arrangement is altered. Coupesand open cars
are both more than 1 foot.
The rear lid listed in the '53 parts book and the one listed in
the '55 book have differing part numbers. A pooling of the
greatest minds in Indianapolis decided that this is a hoax, and
that they are in fact the same. Again as with fenders, Cabriolet
lids are not mentioned until the '55 parts book. From the
illustrations and accompanying photos the early lid may be
indentified by the flat engine protector (below the vent) with
two longitudinal ribs. Cabriolet and Speedster models shared
the same lid. In fact, to my knowledge on all open cars,as well
as Karmann hardtops, rear lids may be freely interchanged
1950-1965 requiring adaptation of only the latch mechanism.
356A lids areeasily differentiated from 356 lids by the bump
in the middle of the engine protector installed to
accomodate the Carrera engine. Coupe and Cabriolet aside
from that are essentially identical to earlier models.
Three separate Coupe lids are listed in the A parts book.
The first 644.512.001.00 is the standard lid shown in illustration
51. The two others listed 644.512.001.01 and 644.512.001.10are
both listed for Carrera models. One is steel one isaluminum.
My question is are these both single grilled louvered lids or
both dual vent lids or one of each or what? David Seeland,
where are you?
I unfortunately do not have any black and white photos of
either of these lids. And their associated carburetor
shrouding. If anyone does please feel free to send them
Moving along to the 356A Cabriolet/Speedster. There are
again three listing the first 644.512.001.20again is standard lid.
The 644.512.001.21 is listed for Carrera Cabriolets. And the
third 644.312.001.50 is the aluminum variety listed for
The standard rear lids on T-5 356B cars were unchanged
from 356A. The coming of the T-6 meant the lid of the Coupe
grew in overall size, changed shape slightly, and sprouted an
additional air vent. The open car version only sprouted the
vent. The engine protector is much larger on these lids and
has a row of louvers down the middle. There were
unchanged on C models.

Tail panels as all the other external sheet metal pieces of
the rear half of the car vary between body styles contouring
of the fenders and especially the shaping around the rear lid
area make them difficult at best to interchange. This is only
true in the case of post '58 cars. The only tail shown in the 53
book is 356.51.315 Coupe tail section. This according to the
'55 parts book is appropriate for Coupe 5001-11360 and
Cabriolet 5015-10270. A second tail oddly enough with the
same part number is said to fit Coupe 11361-11778 and
Cabriolet 10271-15050. A third tail 644.503.081.00 is listed for
Coupes from 11779 and Cabriolets from 15051. This
corresponds to the bumper changes which werediscussed at

Different bumpers, taillights height and other subtle

T-6 meant another change in the Coupe tail due to the
revised deck lid. The T-6 Cabriolet also changed part
number. I haven't really got a good reason why seeing how
fenders, lid and bumper remain the same as the T-5. The only
thing I can think of is holes for the scripts would be different.
Any other theories?
356 models were once again unchanged from T-6 B.

the world's worst 356 limericks
This column has been getting far too serious lately, and some relief is needed.
Brace yourself, for what follows is only one step away from the very bottom (I draw
the line at puns). Some one out there surely loves serious poetry. At this very
moment, he is running forthe bathroom,clutching hisstomache. I hope he makes
it. The lure of the limerick was simply overwhelming and in the end proved
irresistible. Just this once, OK? It won't happen again. Promise.
Some of these are pretty fanciful, and others are merely apocryphal (whew!).
The one about the Karman Hardtop is based on a real car, though. It had metallic
maroon paint and was trimmed inside with fur and stuff. The Photographic Editor
kindly lent his rhymable name to one I sort-of wrote about myself. He said he

But there's much that can go awry;
Eight hidden plugs,
And so few who really know why.
A meticulous craftsman named Bix,
Sold his hundred-point 356;
He observed, "I am bored,
For now it's restored,
And there's nothing left for me to fix."
A fast Speedster pilot named Llew,
Had dreams that his floor rusted
He woke with a bump,
And grooves in his rump,
To find it was utterly true.
An old Roadster driver from Maine,
Eyed 928 with disdain;
"I liked 'em air-cooled,
And I ain't much fooled,
By cars that won't rust in the rain."
An autocross wizard named Blair,
Raced Spyder exceedingly rare;
With acid-dipped tin,
So lightweight and thin,
It quite vanished into the air.
A kit-car designer named Snell,
Planned plastic '550 to sell;
But shades of James Dean,
Resented this scene,
And the venture went quickly to hell.
The farmer from East Tennessee,
Just loved his Convertible D;
But the to (which was leaky),

An elderly dean from McMaster,
Drove a Karman B hardtop disaster;
Despite rusted strut,
He trusted his butt,
To the front end's adjustable caster.
A brash speculator Brad. Dunn,

"Now THIS is for me,
Too bad they're not free,
I'd stash them away by the ton."
A crazed engine-swapper called Scoop,
Byilt a turbocharged pre-A Coupe;
The beast was retired,
It never acquired,
Road manners to handle the poop.
A Del Rio waitress named Lupe,
Got the hots for a late-'60 Coupe;

Kept her out of the bar,
And cut into her usual whoopee.

I've had the occasion to hear;
Can that be a crock?
I've spun lock-to-lock,
And that Armco is now very near!

Floor Pans We manufacture new floor mans; original pans have not been available from the Factory
for several years. After considerable expense, we have created a floor pan with the identical
impressions and appearance as the original spare part. To facilitate repair work, there is
approximately 12 mm (X") extra material around the perimeter of our pan. When properly
installed, it is extremely difficult to see that the pan has been replaced. Stamped from
20-guage steel, these pans are offered in front and rear halves to facilitate installation. The
center lap joint is exactly the same as the original factory 2-piecestamping. Seat mounts for
356A through early 3568, and toe board mounts are supplied with the purchaseof an entire
pan. For late 3568 and 356C, the seat mounts may be refitted.
If you are considering the complete restoration of any type 356, you will probably need a
new floor. Our floor pan is the only way to properly do the job,and to insure the structural
integrity of the body.

Where are all those great Porsche books
that seemed to be proliferating like
rabbits a few months ago?
I hear Susann Miller will be editing a
new Porsche oriented magazine to be
forthcoming in the near future. Also in
the works hopefully will be another
work on Porsche sales literature.
In the meantime I've scraped the
bottom of my bookshelves and would
like to bring your attention to PEU/RAI
which is volume 15 of "the world of
automobiles", An I llustrated
Encyclopedia of the Motor Car,
distributed by Columbia House, 51 West
52nd Street, N.Y.C., N.Y. 10019. This is a
comprehensive set of books that truly
lives up to it's name. Published in
London, England it features many color
photos and drawings as well as black and
white. Not up to Automobile Quarterly
quality standards the reproductions and
drawings are never the less quite good.
We are only represented by 10 photos
(no drawings) if you count Formula One
and Two cars and the 904. The particular
chapter is contributed by L.J.K. Setright
and though it contains nothing new it
certainly will round out any Porsche
fanatic's library. Speaking of nothing
new, we'd like to start in with Porsche
Preservation Pointers: Porsche
"Parallel" Parking: This is the simple
technique of parking on a slight
diagonal when having to park in parking
fields such as at the beach, shopping
centers etc. The usual way is to wind up
taking up two parking spaces while
parked at such an angle so that you can
still back straight out without worrying
about adjacent vehicles. If you are in a
lot that is not overly crowded you might
even go in deeper so as to take up four
parking slots. Probably more subtle and
sophisticated is to park in an end
parking spot that has a curb on oneside.
By parking the wheels right at the curb
you eliminate the possibility of getting
dinged on the drivers side and there is
plenty of space on the passenger side so
that you shouldn't get nipped there

Even before I was "scooped" on the
appearance of a 356 in Woody Allen's
Manhattan I had been thinking of
compiling a list of movies in which our
favorite car has appeared.
The last few years the 911 has started
getting the play for pointing up
characterizations in movies and TV. One
type of character will be driving a 911,
one of- a different ilk a Mercedes. It
seems rarely do you see a 356 except
maybe in the background of films shot
in California. It was therefore refreshing
to see the 356 Cabriolet playing a
significant role in Manhattan.
Remember how it's purchase involved
the big decision that we all are familiar
with I'm sure. How about sending in the

3561 The first feature film I remembered
seeing a 356 in was that great Paul
Newman flick Harper. I still wonder
about the height of the speedster's

do you recall or have seen lately? Let us
know and see your name in print. Please
send in something. We need the

With this reduced gas conspiracy, we
have a little time to catch up on all those
little things that should have been done
a long time ago.
How about Porsche ads, those that
have appeared in magazines of all
kinds? I don't claim to have them all, but
I have quite a few.
The earliest I can find is April 1952, in
Road & Track. It shows a coupe
(limosine) and describes the 356. It is a
dealer ad, Competition Motors, North
Hollywood, CA. In 1955, Max Hoffman
took over the ads which make you
weep- Speedster, $2995; and the
Continental coupe and "convertible".
One of the last Hoffman ads is for a
With the introduction of the 3568,
Porsche of America took over
advertising with the phrase, "All it
shares with other cars is the road!" One
ad shows the 1939 Berlin-Rome car. In
1963, came the Ken Purdy says, ads. The
costliest must have been in the March
1963 Road & Track magazine.
This ad is a six page color spread of the
late 356B (T-6), plus an extra black and
white page listing all dealers. It sits in the
center spread. It is worth obtaining.
The "C" ads shows the prices about
$4200 and more Purdy says. The booklet
"The Porsche Story" by Ken Purdy is
quite a book. Ken Purdy was thedean of
auto writers and had a beautiful way
with words. You do have that booklet,
An ad in 1971 showed the new911 and
914, but more importantly a Formula II,
RS-61 and RSK coupe along with the
1922 Sasha and Cisitalia. A 1978 ad lists all
important victories from 1948. The
Hoffman ad in 1955 showing a Spyder
didn't list as many.
To further tantalize, there are ads
from other companies showing
Porsches. In 1955, Dunlop shows a 550,
Castrol shows a coupe, Vilen Haan
(West 10s Angeles accessory house)
borrowed a 1963 cabriolet from
Porsche, Bell helmets shows a 904,
Pennzoil shows a 1600 5-90 engine.
I'm sure there are more. Most of the
earlier ads are from Road & Track, but
the SCCA magazine had some. It makes
for an interesting side hobby, and as yet
not too expensive.
(Editor's note: Gene also writes, "... I
find the collection challenging (always
looking for another one), frustrating

of killer Pat Ertel
I had never believed that inanimate
objects were capable of possessing
personalities until I became involved
with 356's. For example my Speedster is
very lady like, gently competent and
delicate but with a tendancy to be a bit
tempermental. My coupe is the strong
silent type that smashes through rain
and hail, up mountains and across
deserts with aplomb. And Killer, Killer is
an S.O.B. Killer is my autocross engine.
Killer hates me.
Killer got his name one afternoon
about three years ago when I lovingly
placed his counterweighted, shot
peened, balanced, polished, and
magnafluxed crankshaft into his
crankcase ... the first time. The name
Killer came to me because that is what I
expected him to do to the Tigers and
Europas that were my autocross
competition. I could more accurately
have named him Harry Kari.
Killer was conceived on one autocross
Sunday immediately after a thorough
trouncing by both the Tiger and the
Europa. What I needed for the
Speedster was a better engine, one that
would produce some torque and still
rev. to 6,500 R.P.M. safely. An S/C wasn't
the ticket, no power at really low revs
and my C engine sure wasn't cutting it,
the valves floated at 5,200. After madly
shuffling through parts books, spec
sheets, and my parts stash in the
basement I had Killer's anatomy before
me. A nice light S-90 flywheel, C cam
and carbs, and S/C everything else was
the magic combination of ingredients
that would guarantee me fame and
glory. All I had to do was clear off a space
on the mantle for the trophies and go
out and glue that sucker together.
It was nine months before that engine
turned over on its own. There was a long
series of seeming accidents and
mistakes that should have warned me
that Killer was going to be a very
reluctant partner for my Speedster. The
crankshaft was lost for two months by
U.P.S. I sent the rods out to be
magnafluxed and it took the guy six
weeks to confess that he had lost one. At
the time I was furious with both UPS and
the machine shop but I have since
absolved them of blame. I know now
that it wasn't their fault. Those parts
weren't lost. They were hiding.
The 1976 autocross season was
drawing to a close when Killer ran for
the first time. I am a veteran of nearly a
hundred VW engine rebuilds and
several Porsche jobs and I have never
experienced a flywheel coming off ...
until Killer. It happened halfway around
the block on his first voyage.
Champaign was still glistening on the
rocker covers when a horrendous
rumble came from deep in the
Speedster's running gear. The car was
ignominiously pushed into the garage ...
the first time.
I tore Killer apart and sent his crank
and flywheel to California to be
repaired while the rest of Killer's
anatomy spent the winter strewn across
the workbench. I would occasionally try
to clear a space to fix the toaster or
rehandle an axe but in a few hours a
greasy cylinder head or a dripping oil
cooler would mysteriously appear in the
cleared space. Even in his dismembered
form Killer was haunting me.
It was May, 1977 and two autocrosses
had been run before I got Killer back
together ... the second time. Little
problems just kept popping up. The
snap rings that hold the wrist pins in
dived for the depths of the crankcase
every time I tried to install them.
Cylinder head washers kept crawling
down cracks in the workbench. A
million little things happened to keep
Killer up on the engine stand and my
blood pressure up in the critical zone.
Once I had wrestled him together Killer
ran for about seventy miles before he
decided he'd had enough and his
crankshaft stopped. The Speedster was
abjectly shoved into the garage.
Disgusted, I left Killer to relax happily on
the garage floor and contested the
remainder of the autocross season in a
borrowed 914. Humiliating!
Many months passed before I had
Killer ready to takeanother stab at doing
what engines are supposed to do ... for
the third time. I managed to get about
200 miles of use out of the old boy
before the warm-up event for the 1978
season in March. The ground was
covered with snow when I fired up Killer
to drive to the track. Halfway down the
driveway the crankshaft stopped ...
seized ... wouldn't turn. The embarrass-
ment! Bad enough Killer should crap on
me again at all but did he have to cough
his cookies in my driveway, in front of
everyone, on the way TO the event? It
would have been so much more
dramatic, so much more justifiable for
him to blow to pieces at seven grand on
the back straight. Not Killer, his style is
to squeak to a stop in the driveway. That
engine sure knew how to irritate me and
was capitalizing on every opportunity to
I yanked the turkey out again and
called my friend Thomas to help carry
him to the basement where I was
planning to perform unmentionable
acts of destruction. Killer must have
been reading my mind because halfway
to the basement door he leapt out of my
hands and into Thomas'sarms. Thomas's
body is not equipped to deal with all 250
pounds of a Porsche engine and
surrendered immediately, landing in a
heap in the snow with Killer on top. As I
pulled Thomas out of the bleeding mass
of arms, legs, pipes, and wires I decided
that this was definitely going to be a two
six-pak afternoon. The orderly at the
hospital where I took Thomas had
different plans for me. He said I should
wait in the emergency room for six
hours while they put a cast on his leg,
which was broken in two places, and
stitched up his fingers, which was going
to take a whole LOT of thread. I was
becoming convinced that inanimate
objects are indeed capable of malice.
Yes, Killer hated me and the feeling was
I had to get some more friends to help
get Killer into the basement quickly,
before news of his foul disposition got
out. After disassembling him once again
I spent a month measuring and
checking everything from the rocker
covers to the oil passages to find out why
Killer's crankshaft stopped turning.
Everything measurable checked out
O.K. I tried a different crankcase
because I couldn't accurately measure
the alignment of the old one. After I
buttoned him all back together again ...
the fourth time, I went searching for
another friend to help carry him out of
the basement. It occured to me that
Killer had better work this time because
I was running out of friends. I got him
back in the Speedster and he has run for
about 500 miles now, won an autocross
championship, and behaves like a
perfect gentleman. To this day I don't
know if there was something wrong
with the old case or Killer just sensed
that I had finally endured all of his antics
that I could. One thing is for sure. If that
crankshaft stops again, Killer is going to
become part of a landfill, the S.O.B.
i remember the day
. Bob Gummow
During the year of 1958 we were using a Coupe DeVillefor
transportation when the thought entered my mind that there
must be a better way to get around. Consulting with my
friend, Virginia, I decided that I might like to try one of those
"sportsJ' cars. But which one-- a Corvette, not really; an
Austin-Healley, a Jaguar, Triumph, MG, Alfa Romeo? What a
dilemma. To help sort them out I turned to Road & Track and
Sports Cars Illustrated, reading their road tests and
evaluations. One Marque soon emerged from the morass
with consistently excellent ratings-- the reports usually
ending with the observation "costs more, but worth itJ' the
Porsche, what else?
I remembered seeing those strange little cars, not in great
abundance, while strolling the streets of Frankfurt during my
tour with the U.S. Army in 1954. Now, back home in my
agrarian society in Illinois, I decided that I would like to own
But Porsche dealers weren't to be found in Rockton,
Illinois, population 1200. So, consulting an imported car
dealer listing, off we went o Milwaukee. The first dealership
we visited didn't handle Porsches but they recommended
that we go to Baumgartner Motors and ask for Buz Hahn. Buz
was, unfortunately, out to lunch (for that matter, he still is)
but there in the corner of their small showroom sat 106062, in
Meissen Blau. A deal was made-- the Coupe DeVille was
traded on the Porsche.
The 356 was not to be a weekend toy, but a car for all

Chicago Region events, several Porsche Parades and
numerous trips throughout the US., in addition to the
mundane things such as hauling groceries, wallpaper
steamers, balled and burlapped nursery stock, etc.
Throughout the seven continuous years of this service and
72,000 miles, our 356 did not fail us once. How does one
improve on the car? You don't.

No, old 106062 was no longer just a car. The homely little
thing with the stepped on nose had become a ... well, you
know, sort of a friend. Minor areas of rust had begun to
appear on the fenders-- the bottom sheet metal and bellypan
We used a hot water six to eat the snowballs while the
Coupe underwent restoration, which is another story. While
the restoration may not be authentic by today's desperate
standards, it was good enough to garner 16firsts in 16 Porsche
Concours events, beginning with the Manhattan in 1972.
Now the old Coupe sits out the winters under its MG
Mitten in a heated garage. It deserves it. Yes, I remember the
