Built on an original 1956 Volkswagen frame, Nick's 356 was purchased from the good people at Automotive Legends in California. A shop that will custom build both Porsche 356 Speedster’s as well as the 550 Spyder and 550 Coupe, Automotive Legends creates spot on replicas of some of the most infamous cars from the 20th century.

Powered by a 1.6-Liter OHV four-cylinder good for 67bhp at 5000rpm, Nick's 356 Speedster may not be the fastest car on the road but it is certainly one of the coolest.

A nice touch, Nick managed to find a replica Yale University parking sticker from 1962.

When asked why he chose this particular car to be his daily driver, Nick responded “It’s 32 bucks a month to insure, gets 30 miles to the gallon and if somebody opens their door into me, I don’t care, I go buy another door.”
