Porsche 356 Do I really want one?
I really love the looks of the Porsche 356 and I'm thinking about saving up for one instead of another musclecar. I currently own a '69 Camaro RS SS 396 convertible and would like something different to sit beside it. I've owned a few VW Superbeetles and had a lot of fun with them before the bottoms rusted out. How would the Porsche's handling, braking, and highway driving compare with a VW? With a modern car? What about the dreaded maintenance costs? Is a 356 as expensive as a lot of other foreign sports cars? Do you have to adjust the lifers every 3,000 miles like you would a VW? I'm thinking about a '62-65 Coupe with the emphasis on the '64-65's because of the disk brakes. A factory sunroof would be great but they seem to add another $5-10K to the price of the car.
