1959 Porsche 356 D convertible

I was having wine with an older friend yesterday and was completely blown away by the revelation that he is a car guy.  For most of the time that I have known him, he drove a late 80s Oldsmobile.  His favorite car was a white 1959 Porsche 356 D.  He said it's easy to identify because it has one grill in the back (as opposed to two).  He bought it secondhand and autocrossed it.  He later had a 914, which was underpowered but perfectly balanced.

in certain company, being a car guy is something you keep close to your vest -- it can be a little embarrassing. on the other hand, i think classic (or near-classic) car ownership has never been more widely accepted and admired by mainstream society.
