A few years back, Rod Emory auctioned off the first 356 he ever rebuilt. Quite understandably, a fan in Connecticut fell in love with Emory’s creation; the car changed hands. But when Emory found himself in the tri-state area a few weeks ago, he decided to give the buyer a call to ask if he could take the original car out for a spin. Emory told me the owner immediately obliged, saying, “it was your car to begin with, you have more of a right to it than I do.” Ever the humble car builder, Emory invited me along for a drive, wishing to share his first build and the memories that came with it. He hadn’t seen the car in six years — it’s the original Emory Outlaw 356.
