INTERVIEW WITH GARY KEMPTON IN 356 REGISTRY NOV/DEC 1999 BY DICK KOENIG

Have you ever heard of a 1500 RS 356 Carrera?

Not many people have. These were the very first 356 Carreras and they were equipped with Spyder engines. Some years ago I had a brief opportunity to examine one. The car was in nice condition but needed restoration. Recently I was excited to discover that the car had been completely redone and was now in Gary Kempton's shop. He invited me for a visit to see the Carrera. We shared stories and pictures and talked all day. It was wonderful. Gary met me at the Tallahassee Regional Airport and we rode in the pickup truck to his business, Made-By-Hand, Inc., in nearby Crawfordville.
