      Hnnnng! is right!

      That is absolutely gorgeous, Mario. I believe my skin is actually turning green with envy as I type this. Congratulations on having restored such a beautiful example of what may be my absolute favorite car of all time, the 'B' with finned brake drums.

      Love to see the end result, well done!! Again for my own records for when I choose to restore my car which is also a '63 Super, how much was the cost? PM me if you don't want to say publicly.

      Did someone forget their password and have to create a new account?


      That is really beautiful, Mario. It looks like it only has lap belts in the photo that shows them. Did you not opt for shoulder belts, too? It should have mounts being a '63, correct?

      No, I'm the son, you can see I've posted plenty in our general aircooled porsches thread. I do a lot of the posting, but forgot the password to my dad's account. He's been pretty busy lately so I took it on my own liberty to update not sure on the shoulder belts, I'll ask/have him respond later

      No offense, but that gives me the heebie-jeebies. I put period correct reproduction 3-point belts in my car, but I think I might go for retractable if I were doing it again. Well, I say that, but that’s because I wasn’t the one who did my interior and it doesn’t (yet) look original. If it were finished like I want I’d go period correct again.

      All of that being said I know it’s not like he’s driving the 356 to work, so there’s that! I’m just a safety nerd. At least to a certain degree. If I were a safety extremist I wouldn’t be playing with tiny 50+ year old cars!

      If life were actually fair I’d have a stable like that, too!

      What a collection!
