I recently posted a picture of a rusted Porsche 356 on the True Driving fb page and there were a ton of negative comments. Firstly, I never understand the hate, but I guess that will always exist. The whole “rust” look has been around for a couple years now, and although I never liked when people purposely rust a hood or fender, there is just something about finding an old beat up rusted classic, and keeping the body just the way it is. Of course, restoring a car properly is always something that will get the most respect, but the rust look sure does add a ton of character. It may not be for everyone, but just because someone enjoys a rusted Porsche 356, it doesn’t mean they are “doing it wrong”. I like it. It’s different. And different is always welcome.
Yet another great video from the great Stephen Brooks. So much to say about the videography. The car itself is absolutely beautiful. The setting is perfect. Uh, just watch it.
We all know the Porsche 356 is a classic. It’s a monument in Porsche history and today can fetch a pretty penny for a real example. It really is a pleasure to see guys starting to experiment and modify the beautiful car. As you can see, classic color combo’s are the way to go. This very light green/yellow is absolutely perfect, keeping the car’s classic look and a generous drop that would make anyone in the mod world very happy.
I mean, look at it, it’s absolutely perfect.
Highly modified aircooled beetles have been around for ages. But for many reasons, you rarely, if at all see these Porsche 356 so highly modified. I have to say, this flat grey example slammed on it’s balls makes me want one BAD! btw, The green Bus in the background is nuts too!
