When I gifted Rod Emory his 1:18 custom I asked only two things from him in exchange. First, a drive up the canyon in his personal 1955 A Coupe. Second, a real 356 Outlaw badge which I swore on my grave to never leave my possession. In fact this was the last one from the original batch and he didn’t plan on making anymore due to people reproducing fakes. I agreed as long as he would never let my creation out of his grasp as well. In fact he did one better and also gifted me an exclusive signed book of pictures compiled from the restoration of the 356 SL which I was allowed to sit in briefly. Such a surreal day.
