    Actually it is a horn ring. The light flasher is the Porsche emblem "button" in the center of the ring. It's a little hard to see in this scan but note that the "headlight signal button" is #3 and the "horn ring" is #29. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    Really interesting! I learn something new every day! On mine, it was originally factory equipped with just a horn button. I added the horn ring (love the way they look!). In any case, I have mine mounted the correct orientation!

    This is my favorite horn ring. It was optional on 356 speedsters. For looks I think that it is the "coolest".

    Awfully nice. What a process you have established for the cars your shop restores. John in CT

    The Speedster is finally finished. I'll post pictures today and it's now for sale.

    This is a stunning car. I've had four Speedsters in all, every one a gem. When I was much younger, and after a thorough check-up at Dieter's (of the car, not me:D) I drove my first one cross country from San Diego to Ft. Lauderdale. The fortunate new owner of this one will be very happy.
