Stoddard Customer Wins Amelia Award at 2015 Amelia Island Concours

We love customer emails like this one from Dave DiMaria at Vintage Car Works, "I just got back from Amelia. We had a great event and won the Amelia Award for our class—finishing second in sports cars from 1955 to 1959. I am pretty sure that we were the only Porsche in our class, which included Maseratis, Lancias and one-off coachbuilt Fiats, etc." 

"The car is a 1959 - 356A Carrera GS Cabriolet, which was highly optioned from the factory. We performed a complete restoration on the car. The body and floor pan were metal finished and the car was painted in single stage acrylic urethane with a little bit of orange peel left in the final finish in order to achieve a period correct look for the car."

You can find out more information about the Amelia Island Concours here.  There's some great photo galleries on Sports Car Digest's site here.  

Here are some images of Dave's 1959 356 Carrera GS on the showfield
