Porsche 356 SC Coupes; back alleys of Banff

from Alex Emond, in Banff:

"Here are a pair of early 60's Porsches . Over in Heinz' driveway . I think he owns the red one , recently acquired and the blue one is probably getting some work done on it even though it looks to be in mint condition. Valuable little sports car .
"The Fargo lurks just up the lane from me and I suspect that it will be getting some attention soon, once someone can afford the project. Nice , simple , basic truck. No nonsense whatsoever."--AE

from Pat Rogers; "These are SC coupes. The speedster of Porsche is an open car with cut
down windshield,no roll up glass (for weight saving) ....pre A series
and A series only.The Sc cars were C series only.....had all the final
improvements of the 356 cars before the introduction of the 911
