                            Often rusted out, and sometimes even missing on cars which
                       need restoration, the heater valve is a vital link in your heating system
                and should be inspected regularly. Besides losing heat, which should be flow-
   ing to your passenger compartment, a deteriorated heater valve can allow noxious en-
   gine fumes to enter. New heater valves will keep you both comfortable and safe!

   The Boone Police Department were prompt and the proces-
sion for the Concours left exactly on time. They had all in-
tersections blocked, lights on yellow and the escort to the
Parkway. The Boone police were very cooperative and made
us feel very special.
   The drive to the Concours has always been the most emo-
tional part of any Holiday for me. This year was certainly no
exception. Leading over 150 356s down one of the most ex-
citing sections of the Blue Ridge Parkway and over the fa-
mous Linn Cove Viaduct is not an experience I'll soon for-

injuries sustained on the descent. Even the detour route was
pretty that day.

  Restoring a "correct" Porsche is becoming more and more
of an art as time wears on, and we are forced more and more
to search the details of the past for clues. As a case in point,
an entrant in the East Coast Holiday in Boone spent two days
assembling a 1957 Speedster in our shop just prior to the
event. He preferred to perform most of the detail finishing
himself, and found an original paint 1957 coupe on our
showroom floor to be an enormous asset. The point is that
a great deal of "correct" information can be gleaned from
good, original cars that have not been tampered with. Un-
fortunately, very few such cars exist, especially if the vin-
tage Porsche is of a more unique sort.
  With regard to a very unique 550 Spyder that is currently
being restored to debut at the Porsche Parade in Boston, the
assistance of owners of that type of car is invaluable. I have
spent hours with one in particular, and owe a great debt for
the help of Jim Perrin. During one of our bull sessions, I hap-
pened to mention to Jim the existence of a unique factory list
that I have listing Spyders beginning with #15 and unfor-
tunately running off the page with #46. After we talked for a

   Since you are ready to start cutting and welding, now is
a good time to stop and assess what you are going to do. First,
you are NOT going to cut away every piece of rusty metal.
Some of this is helping to hold the car together, it is also use-
ful in making patterns and observing construction. If you have
lots of original, rusty metal, you are "lucky". You can sketch,
measure, and photograph your car. If there is just a big hole,
you will need to get this information from another original
car similar to yours, B. Johnson's book, etc. Some day I will
