Californian Guy Newmark's C Coupe, which has been in his family since new, had 982,000 miles on it when this video was produced in August of 2013.  He expects to be a little shy of a million when he celebrates the car's 50th birthday next year, but who knows?  What is certain is that this is a guy who loves his 356 in a way that is an inspiration to us all.


For a number of Club members who live on the North Shore or are willing to take an early Sunday morning drive, the monthly Coffee and Classics get-together in Winnetka has become a favorite driving-season activity.  In April 2013, Sheridan Road Magazine did a feature on C&C and also filmed this video, which features several Midwest 356 Club members.

A European television commercial, ostensibly for Shell gasoline but really for Ferrari, featuring the latter's Grand Prix cars being driven at speed on the streets of various cities throughout the world.  This one is best played with the sound volume all the way up.  Thanks to club member Curt Crowell for calling this to our attention.


A television commercial, presumably from the late 1980s, in which a visitor strolls through a garage filled with historic Porsche street and track cars.
