Roadster
Chassis #: 84328
This 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster with chassis number 84328 was purchased by Dale Hersh as a white 1600 Normal from a private party who were fellow 'Porsche Owners Club' members in the early 1960's. Dale decided to paint the car Metallic Green which was a popular color in those days found on GTO's. Dale was a gentleman racer who was always on a tight budget doing most of the work on the car himself, to include the rebuilding of the Hurth Roller Bearing crank shafts which he used in his race motors. Being a machinist in those days it was not difficult trying new ideas as he, Roger Bursch (Scientific Automotive) and Ray Litz (competition Engineering) were all close friends. Dale would go to Ray's shop and help out with new ideas that would take SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) E Production Speedsters to new performance levels.

This car was extensively campaigned on the west coast from the early 1960's to 1965, better known as the era of the 'Speedster Wars' as many filled the grids of most of the popular SCCA races competing with all other makes of sports cars. This car became the Pacific Division SCCA E Production Champion earning 44 points and an invitation to the 1965 National Run Offs at Daytona. This car was at many of the same races when drivers such as Jack McAfee, Ken Miles, Scooter Patrick, Dave Jordan, Alan Johnson, Bob Kirby, Walt Maas and Dennis Harrison, who were also driving Porsches.

One of the most memorable events for this Porsche was the 1965 'Times Grand Prix' three hour enduro at Riverside Raceway October 9, 10, 11 for sports cars. Dale was given the pole position for the race and was on the front row with Scooter Patrick (904) and Lew Spencer (Cobra). This was a very unusual situation for Dale and his speedster. He questioned the organizers that they had made a mistake as his qualifying times were no where close to his fellow racers in the top 6 qualifiers. They said he had earned it and go out there and race.

Dale started the race with 65 other cars and held off all of them until the back straight when 'The Train' started passing him on the long back straight. Dale finished the race in first place for E Production and 8th overall, which was fantastic for he and his Speedster as only 32 cars finished. Later Dale found out that the organizers had given Dale Dan Gurneys qualifying time for Sundays big race as both of them had car number 19. Scooter Patrick came in 1st place followed by Kraus in his Corvette Stingray. Some of the drivers which DNF'd were Denny Harrison, Bob Kirby, Ken Miles and Dick Gulstrand to name a few.

Dale raced at Candle Stick, Port Stockton, Laguna Seca, Willow Springs, Holtville, Del Mar, Santa Barbara, Palm Springs, Pomona, Riverside, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Great Salt Lake Road Races, usually finishing in the top 3.

Dale retired the Speedster in 1967 and ran an E Production Porsche Roadster having 86 starts and also went to the Runoffs in Atlanta, as the Pacific Division Champion once again, finishing 8th overall. He went on to race a D Production 911 also going to the Runoffs in Atlanta later in the 1970s. During his whole 356 era he was sponsored by 'Roger Bursch' of Scientific Automotive in Pasadena, California.

Noted 'Vintage Car Historian' Ron Cummings owned Dale's Speedster for a short while during the 1980s. Dale purchased it back and did a street restoration painting it the color it is today.

During the VARA vintage race weekend at Pomona in 1995 Dale drove Jack Mcafee in his speedster during the parade laps honoring famous race drivers who were a part of the tracks history in the early 1950s and 1960s.

Currently the car is pretty much the way it was raced, original upholstery, Carrera front brakes, steel alloy wheels and roll bar.
