What Is
Speedster Dreams?


My name is Patric Fransko and I have been thinking about this for over 10 years. I have always loved the Porsche 356 Speedster, but owning one has always been out of my budget. I have also always been a fan of James Dean. So, I decided to team up with Vintage Speedsters to create a James Dean Tribute Build.


The plan for this website and social channels is to document the build completely. We will also document a cross country drive in the car immediately after its completion. I will be starting in Scottsdale and following Rt 66 when possible including stops at the Dean family farm and James Dean Museum in Indiana.
