Just received my 56 Mk II. I purchased it sight unseen based on the pictures and video provided by the previous owner. Its as described and I'm ready to get started on making it mine. I would like to know if there are any members in or near the austin area so I can see what a good complete car looks like. I plan to have mine in nice driver status, meaning solid mechanically with a nice paint job. I 'm not a mechanic, but consider myself pretty handy and could greatly benefit from a shop manual. I'll keep using the search function for now. Proud to be a Mk II owner!
