I went to western Sydney for a birthday party for a car yesterday afternooon -as you do .The car in question has been in the Reed family for 50 years . Purchased from the Australian importer back in 1961 by the late Brian Reed the 356 is still owned and cherished by the Reed family .
Justin Reed, a complete Porsche tragic , organised the gathering of fellow enthusiasts who toasted the car appropriately with German bubbles .
A few of the 356 tragics muttered about it being time to restore the car to its original condition (" those mirrors are awful Justin") but the Reeds want to keep it as Brian intended at least for now .
