ABOUT VINTAGE TRADER
As a kid, pretty much all of our family vacations revolved around 356 events. I spent countless hours in the back of our 356 travelling to meetings and gatherings stuffed in between bags and suitcases. As I got older my interest in early Porsche cars increased and my dad and I restored dozens of 356s as a joint hobby.
The idea of LED upgrades to our beloved air cooled classics evolved out of dire need. With my 25 year background in the automotive industry, I clearly saw room for improvement to the various dull 6 volt candle lights in my 1957 356A coupe. Especially in modern traffic, our little cars are barely visible, distracted drivers only make matters worse.
But I wanted it to be state of the art, bright but with the ‘period correct’ vintage look - so no modern blue white refrigerator LEDs. With that said our mission was set!
