PCA Photo of the Week
Here is our '89 Speedster. The car was out of Scottsdale, Ariz., when we purchased it about ten years ago with 12,800 on the odometer. It currently shows 22,000 miles. It is 100 percent original and unrestored except for the chromed, paint-to-match wheels and a black-on-linen gauge cluster. We've shown it only once and came home with a Best in Class at a PCA Concours at Art Center College in 2011.
