 Jim Smeltzer of Hilton Head displayed his Twin Grill Roadster at this years Concours and came away with the Palmetto Award. His Twin Grill is one of 248 built in 1962. It was great seeing some local Porsche’s win this year. Congratulations Jim!

Jim’s Roadster has won four 356 Registry East Coast Holidays, 2003 in Ashville NC, 2004 in Williamsburg VA, 2005 in Berry Hill VA and 2008 in Lancaster PA. 

It has been restored in stages with the paint work being done in 1990. Can you believe how fantastic that 19 year old paint job looks? A testament to the care Jim gives the car. The engine, underside, brakes, electrical and chrome were completed in 2002.
