The Porsche 550 Spyder is right near the top of my “must-have” list. Sadly, the prohibitive costs involved are probably going to make that impossible, however I do have my eye on some of the modern 550s built by companies like Beck Speedster.

Sure it’s not the original, but it’s fast, good looking and cheap, exactly how I like my women.

There will come a winter, probably a few years from now, that I have a kit delivered to the garage entrance and set about building a Little Bastard with some hand tools, some patient friends and a well stocked beer fridge.
