This is the best Porsche, or any auto board I’ve ever been on.

Thanks all of you

I've been on a solid 20 of them, this community is far and above the best and its members have stood the test of time.

More than a board....a community.

This site has been in large part the only way I've had the pleasure of driving a 914. Thank you.

Without the help of the members on this board, and the skills of Chris Foley and Ed Morrow of Tangerine Racing, I would not have been able to restore/modify my 914 and get it back on the road.

Hey, great to see a newbie in Middle Tennessee. I am east of Nashville in Mount Juliet. Let me know if you need any local help.

Without this board I would not be able to live vicariously through the highs and lows of 914 ownership biggrin.gif

Posted by: Optimusglen Mar 20 2017, 02:45 PM

Not only because of the wealth of knowledge, this board is great. I've had a lot of different makes/models and usually join a forum for any new car I own, so I'm on everything from Jeep and classic Ford truck forums, to Volvo, VW, Audi, BMW, Land Rover, and BMW Motorcycle. Often times multiple forums for each make/model. In all, likely close to 2 or 3 dozen.

When my birthday rolls around, my email is FULL of all of these forums wishing me a happy birthday.

But 914World has been one of the best, easily top 3.

Agreed. Owning a 914 would be very difficult were it not for this site. Much appreciated!!

Posted by: raynekat Mar 20 2017, 05:11 PM

I'm on Pelican Parts and Early 911 S Registry a bunch. I prefer this one too. We'll done gang.

My only wish was that I knew about this community BEFORE I bought the car.
It has been a year of heavily relying on the brain-trust here to get me through the challenges. Including engine fire, electrical confusion, exhaust mismatch and the list goes on. Just gotten the car to start again today (again with the advise of this great group).
Wil drive it for a little while, before asking quetions again (probably about streering wheel/hub and all the issues that go with that).

Thanks girls and guys.
And lets not forget the vendors.

I could not have kept a 914 without the Information, parts sources, and events; thank you

Contrary to what the others are saying, I have to strenuously disagree. this place is freakin' dangerous.

I have spent a ton more money on upgrades and improvements making it a far superior car than when I got it. Which isn't saying a lot compared to some of the master works others own.

And then there's the people here that rush to help every time I paint myself into a corner, which is just about every project. You'd think they'd learn. wink.gif.

Welcome

If it weren't for you mother_______ers with real 914-6s and /6 conversion cars, I'd still be driving my car.

This six conversion thing is expensive and addicting.

To note, for some reason I think the reading comprehension of many active posters is far below average. Post up asking about an apple and you get 20 replies about how oranges can cause acid reflux.

Despite this, still the best forum around.

Yea, 914 World is the very best for 914 content. I got my 1st 1974 914 back in 1978
And had to learn from mechanics that I new. Over the years lots of different Porsches and lots of Chilton books on how to fix them.

Lots of years gone by and lots of different Porsche cars. When I was on the bird board they had some info on 911s but almost nothing on 914s. Some one there suggested going to World for 914 content. When I bought my factory 6 in Dec 2006 I needed some info on how to open the front hood when the cable was broken. I asked the board how to do it and I got an answer back in 1 minuet. I found the Internet age of car clubs for me.

Almost everyone is very nice and very helpful and for a beer or less would help you out.

The talent of our members is unreal. I see some really talented people building some incredible cars and just ask them for ideas on how to do something and there are right there for you. I have helped out my share of guys and always am happy to do it.
Paying it back.

I have traveled all over the world on business and am not alone in my hotel late at night with an Internet connection. Understanding that lots of people here make there living from car parts or services for 914s or Porsche and I am happy to buy from them when I can.

So thank you 914World and all of its members and moderators for all that you do.
Every one of you. Thanks for your answers for a problem that is very specialized.

Yup.

Enough said—other than thanks to Andy, and so many others (y'all) who make it so.

My car was on blocks in the garage from 1987 to 2015 why'll I was busy racing dirt bikes. When I first started working on the car I wasn't a member that's my biggest regret. Once I got connected with the 914world and the local OC 914 gang I was able to straighten out the problems I was having. I thank the world...oh wait thank you 914world piratenanner.gif av-943.gif

I went to the forum in Rome, and I couldn't read anything. It was all Greek to me. My reflex was to drop acid.

talk about a forum, but too many foreigners. You'd think they do something about that.

Great place, changing all the time!

This place is definitely the best for 914 content. I frequent rennlist a lot but for the other models, and OT stuff. The 914 board there is basically crickets...
