Product Description

Much as the Speedster 50th Anniversary Event of June 25-27, 2004 was the ultimate gathering of Speedsters, the official book that documents the event in images and text is the ultimate Speedster picture book. The major events of the weekend are presented in superb images. Under headings such as The Tribe Gathers, Vroom With a View, and Force Field of Dreams, Edwards sets the theme for each collection of photos in eloquent prose. Heinrichs, in a continuing quest for accuracy, comments on the number of Speedsters and Convertible Ds produced, how many of the first 200 Speedsters were finished in 1954, and how many Speedsters had 1954 model year dataplates. He also examines how many Speedsters had the original side script and the controversy surrounding the Speedster D side script. From the pre-event presentation of Porsche #1 and Speedster #1 at Bernardus Lodge to the grand display of cars at Quail Lodge, the event comes to life once again. The cars, the camaraderie, and the spirit of the event leap off the pages. Between the covers of this marvelous new book, you can relive this once-in-a-lifetime event. 12″ x 10″ landscape format. 332 color photos.
