Our friends from Petrolicious recently stopped by Savannah, Georgia for a closer look at Ken Sirlin's 1962 Porsche 356 Cabriolet. Sirlin bought the car while he was living in Brussels in 1985 from a man who carefully scoured the Earth for the perfect donor shell. Once he located it, the car underwent an extensive restoration in order to put it back factory perfection.

Unlike so many restoration queens before it, though, Sirlin's 356 went on to enjoy a little excitement after its rebirth. He used the machine in a few vintage rallies all around Europe, including the Liege Rome Liege event.

That was all before he packed up the 356 Cab and moved to Georgia. Now, the little red convertible serves as a daily driver, plodding around the shaded streets of the historic South and enjoying a life of quiet retirement. As usual, Petrolicious has done an excellent job of capturing both the Porsche and Sirlin's attachment to his car. We suggest you check out the full video below for a closer look.
