A 356 jewel

I was up in Autowerks in Charmhaven two weeks ago and Simon-pictured with the bones of a RSR replica being built in the shop-showed me a quite stunning newly restored 356C which was in for some minor work and to get registered.The car has just been totally restored in Victoria.It is in concours plus condition.Breathtaking.
I was scared to walk near it.Simon confessed that he was nervous about road testing it.Who would want to be the first to collect a stone chip on that pristine paint? And there are plenty of stones on the roads around Charmhaven.
Then at last Saturday's German Car Day on the Foreshore at Newcastle there it was below -registered and being driven on the road.It looked superb.As did the quite stunning Mercedes 300SL Gullwing at the same display.Sorry-not a good photo but it was always surrounded by people.
