1957 Porsche 356 Owned By Dom Chinea
“I’ve wanted one of these literally since I was a kid, it’s my absolute dream car.”

This Porsche 356a was buried in a barn in Pennsylvania, USA for almost 30 years. The story goes that it was an old hill climb racing car that had an accident. It was going to be restored and someone did start to take it apart - they stripped it all down and sanded down the front end - but they then gave up and moved onto something else, leaving the Porsche to rust away in the barn.

Getting the Porsche back to its former glory is a huge undertaking. Dom has been working on the project since 2021 and you can follow the progress of the Porsche’s restoration on his YouTube channel:
