Our friends at Bring-A-Trailer (the site that causes my marriage to to take a step back anytime I email my wife a listing), have found this formerly excellent 1956 Porsche 356 for sale on eBay. I say “formerly” because this car had a massive fire and needs more than a Maaco spray job and a Pepboys exhaust to return it to Barret-Jackson Lottery ticket status. A link to the auction and a few more photos after zee jump.. I ZED JUUMP! SCHNELL!

The auction is of the No Reserve variety, and the current top bid is just over $4,100. If you are a master of all things Porsche or you just want to torture yourself with a project that will no doubt ruin your life – then this is your chance to scoop up a really terrible iconic vehicle at a fraction of a fraction of the usual cost.

    I like the way you think. It somehow manages to scare and comfort me at the same time.

    Braff, from one married man to another let me tell you: never email BaT listings to your wife. I learned real quick this is a good way to put her in a foul mood. Only email her pictures of diamonds and flowers. Then a) you don't actually spend money on said diamonds and flowers, and b) you can keep your obsession of vintage race cars, burned out Porsche's, and obscure European steel away from her until the time is right. When is the time right? Well, according to the Al Navarro School of Auto Purchasing, when the car is sitting in her spot in the drive way.

    You say "needs a spray job", I say "amazing flame-surfaced patina that anyone outside of the Snow Belt would be a fool to destroy".

    Burnt 356 + welder + grinder + wrecked WRX = EPIC WIN!
