so here's the deal. i love the 356 coupes from the days of old but something about owning and maintining a near 50 year old specimen seems a little daunting to me. I've been looking into some companies that make replica turnkey models available from anywhere between 15-20k (approx). From what i can see these cars use many updated parts, some including new frames and up to date suspensions with new engines and such as well as including Air conditioning ( a must for TX). mostly using VW parts.
now my questions pertain to daily driving a car, such as this, on a daily basis. Would it be reliable enough? i know the cars are fairly simple in regards to new cars made today, but i dont want to be stranded every other day. also, i dont want something like this to be a garage queen rested for her sunday parade around the neighborhood. it'll be a replica, not an original, so i would rack up the miles on this bad boy. hell i would probably rack up the miles on an original too - i find it blasphemous to park such cars and not drive them.
that being said, would this even be a good idea? do they even have airbags?what is it like to insure one of these cars?
any help would greatly be appreciated
