Description

A partnership - The car and you must agree when it is time to shift into the next gear, how close to hug that corner, and when to just relax and put the top down. In this partnership, you make one another look really good! Being an Intermeccanica owner is being part of a story of roots, passion, and innovation. When I was seven years old, I decided, the 356 Porsche was made for me. When I was in my 20s I realized that driving around a rare historical artifact was less than practical and not particularly affordable. Yet, I had much respect for the 356, too much to turn to the average kit car. That is when I met Henry Reisner of Intermeccanica: history, roots, passion, innovation, craftsmanship and respect. Intermeccanica is a hand-built coach that, with every sanded down curve, pays tribute the 356 Roadster Convertible D. This car is solid and provides the driver the ultimate 356 experience with some modern extras, power windows, air conditioning, USB audio connection, and a couple of cup holders. At this age-stage in my life, the hum of this motor and the simplicity of this machine gives me a break from daily life. Maybe you will find the same Zen moment behind the wheel or add to your special occasion with her tuxedo-look. Whatever the occasion, it is sure to be a classy, yet cool partnership experience; in an iconic sort of way. *Custom Coach Intermeccanica Build 1998 Roadster D, Hard and/or Soft Top.

Guidelines

No smoking Secure Garage overnight storage is ideal. However, there are outdoor storage situations that are acceptable as well. If you plan on storing the car outdoors overnight, give me a heads up and I can run you though additional security features. If storing in a garage, a parking mat is provided to protect your garage floor from vintage car mishaps.

Faqs

  • What if it rains?

    This car is not suitable for the Seattle rain. If you get rained out, I'm always flexible by extending your time or rescheduling.

  • safety on the road?

    This is a vintage driving experience. There are no airbags or other modern safety features, aside from seatbelts and headrests. You must be a defensive and alert driver as if you were on a motorcycle. Note that you will often fall in other vehicle's blind spots. Use your driving skills to predict the actions of others and stay safe.

  • What do you mean by "hard-top" or "Soft-Top" options?

    Uniquely, this car can switch between hard and soft/convertible tops. Let me know what top you would like ahead of time. The hardtop provides more protection from the elements and is more inclosed - but not suitable for drivers over 6'

  • I would love to use this car for my wedding or special event. Can I pick up the car before my rental date so everything is ready to go?

    Great! I love helping out with these amazing days! Let me know what I can do to make things run more seamlessly and have the car in the best possible condition for you. Unfortunately, Turo does not offer a lower rate option for an no-use/overnight storage so that things are ready to go/set up for the big event. However, I have been able to work with wedding parties to figure things out and make sure everything is all set with minimal hassle. Let's talk!

  • Can other people in my party/family drive the car

    Your additional driver(s) must have their own Turo account and must be approved to drive on your trip. See instructions below for how to add a driver to a trip. Hosts cannot add a driver to your trip. You, as the primary driver, must be present at check-in and checkout. An additional driver is not permitted to pick up or return a vehicle. How to add a driver: 1) Log in to Turo.com or the Turo mobile app. 2) Open your Trip page. 3) Open the “Booked” tab. 4) Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the “Drivers” section. 5) You’ll be listed as the primary driver. 6) Enter the email address of your additional driver. If they have a Turo account, enter the email address associated with their account. If they’re already an approved Turo member, we’ll auto-approve them to drive on your trip. If they don’t have a Turo account or we haven’t yet approved them, we’ll email them approval instructions.

  • What condition is this classic car in?

    This car has been used as a daily driver and gone through a restoration process. However, it is not museum quality. It is a classic car with some squeaks, personality, and a patina... meant to be driven. She has story, as all good classics should. My intention of sharing her on Turo is to create a community around her that gives back to the car. Every dollar earned goes into car upgrades and improvements. I love hearing guest suggestions and ideas on adding the extras or changing out something. I’m so excited is to share and create an collective enthusiasm and partnership around this little 356!

  • Ca I park my other car at your house during my rental time?

    For sure! I have a large driveway, end of cul-de-sac. You are welcome to leave your car at my place.

What an incredible experience. Leann is very sweet and the car is well cared for. Truly enjoyable for anyone who wants to experience what the essence of driving really is about. Fun for the planned trip but also fun just to grab groceries or coffee. A timeless experience anyone who loves the road should make a point to participate in.

So great to meet you Drew! We have much in common, so let's stay in touch. Drop me a line anytime you want to go for a drive...even just to do errands ;-)
