After seeing the guy in the classifieds with 20 chair.gif rollers.
how many 914s do you have, that run and have current registration?
who holds the record? Current cars only,none of the past.

That's a rather inflammatory statement, don't you think? smile.gif

Be sure to add: "that the wife knows about...."

Posted by: VRROOMM1 Apr 15 2017, 07:10 AM

1 running 1 ready for paint

Posted by: RobW Apr 15 2017, 07:15 AM

Two, but would jump on the right roller.

Posted by: 914-300Hemi Apr 15 2017, 07:41 AM

Just one and it is running. City won't allow cars on the lawn for rollers.

Posted by: Cairo94507 Apr 15 2017, 07:44 AM

......I have one; registered but not running-yet.

Posted by: GeorgeRud Apr 15 2017, 07:47 AM

Just two, but willing to add more if needed!

Posted by: rgalla9146 Apr 15 2017, 07:51 AM

ONE.......but three every night just before I fall asleep

Posted by: Jett Apr 15 2017, 08:39 AM

We have four registered with three running and one from Cali waiting to be restored.

ALWAYS looking for another smile.gif smile.gif

One running, and a roller in a storage unit. I really need to sell it because it costs money every month to keep, and entails an extra cross-country trip every couple years when we move. It's cost me way more to store and transport than I paid for it 15 years ago when I could drive it.

Posted by: daytona Apr 15 2017, 12:36 PM

2 registered, insured, and running. 3 rollers/parts donors. Wife knows about all of them. That is my story and I'm sticking to it.
Any orphan rollers needing a home?

2. And they'll both be at Rt66 this year.

You can only drive one!

This thread offends me, I need to go to my safe garage space.
The OP is an evil elitist with his jackstand shaming.

It is time for a revolution where we, the oppressed owners of non-running 914's, throw off our stigma and declare...

Rusty Lives Matter (RLM)!

I'm not tellin'...

Posted by: michael7810 Apr 15 2017, 08:01 PM

1 and it runs. I can't see how I would find the time for more than 1, but I also don't know why you would want more power than a T4 on a street driven 914. And no I have never ridden in a six.

Posted by: Mueller Apr 15 2017, 08:04 PM

1 non-runner

Do not want another one, heck, I barely want this one anymore smile.gif

Posted by: Garold Shaffer Apr 15 2017, 09:45 PM

1 registered, but three (in total) runners plus 4 parts cars.

confused24.gif What, I don't have a problem. biggrin.gif

Posted by: cary Apr 16 2017, 09:37 AM

One running driving, one on the rotisserie in epoxy primer and three rollers.

Posted by: ConeDodger Apr 16 2017, 09:42 AM

Just one.

But that's one more than most teeners have! bootyshake.gif

Posted by: Larmo63 Apr 16 2017, 12:04 PM

One, officially on jack stands for one year now.


Posted by: BillC Apr 16 2017, 03:29 PM

Just one, but it runs quite nicely. piratenanner.gif

Posted by: Krieger Apr 16 2017, 03:34 PM

1.5 biggrin.gif

Posted by: lvnzdrm Apr 16 2017, 06:21 PM

2 registered, insured and driveable, does enough parts to build a third count?

Posted by: arne Apr 16 2017, 07:22 PM

One, registered but not running... yet. Stay tuned.

Posted by: Unobtanium-inc Apr 16 2017, 07:44 PM

I have three, 1 is running and driving, 1 is a runner but being re-worked, and one is a parts car.

Posted by: wndsrfr Apr 16 2017, 07:48 PM

Two....Both street legal--Kermee is mostly street lethal.

One running, two staged for -6 conversions, one a GT.

Have the running for sale in the classifieds. Don't know what I'll do if it sells....

Posted by: pete000 Apr 16 2017, 09:07 PM

Both of mine are finally running after six years...

Posted by: plays with cars Apr 16 2017, 11:53 PM

Define "running" ...

One now. I wouldn't trust it for a cross country trip (yet), but it's hitting the autocross circuit this year. smilie_pokal.gif

Posted by: JamesM Apr 17 2017, 12:16 AM

Three 914s but also a 951, a 931, and an 85 Westfalia all running registered and insured.

I also have a tolerant wife which is necessary given all the time I spend keeping all these things going.

Posted by: JOEPROPER Apr 17 2017, 05:44 AM

I have 2. One complete and running (insured but not registered) and one in progress. It's very nice condition but waiting for the engine to be completed...

Posted by: mbseto Apr 17 2017, 08:52 AM

I am currently 0 for 2. Wife knows about 1. When I got the second and started thinking I might be catching the disease, my buddy said don't worry, you can still make fun of people with 3 or more.

Posted by: VoPo914 Apr 17 2017, 12:32 PM

One, and it's a runner!

Posted by: SKL1 Apr 17 2017, 01:48 PM

2 running and used on nice days... '71 original owner, and '73 third owner (known history since new)...
Will stay in family, have two boys who both inherited the car gene, very understanding wife (who used to autocross the '71 WAY back when!)

Posted by: JawjaPorsche Apr 17 2017, 02:06 PM

I bought mine new and it runs perfectly. Don't know about having another 914. I am kinda partial to virgins. Don't want my ass sitting where someone else's ass has been!

Women? Not picky there! beerchug.gif

Posted by: GermermanCarGuy Apr 17 2017, 04:22 PM

Two. Oh, "running"....none. sad.gif

Posted by: Sea Dragon 914 Apr 17 2017, 08:40 PM

Two running well and a third that runs for about 20 minutes and then shuts down (think it is either fuel pump or CHT sensor). Hope to have a new engine and new paint for the third one by the end of summer.

Posted by: euro911 Apr 17 2017, 09:52 PM

Two non running as well dry.gif

Posted by: RickS Apr 17 2017, 10:24 PM

914s actually run? Stop the presses!

I thought they all came with Jack stands as standard equipment.

Posted by: jcd914 Apr 17 2017, 10:54 PM

What, some 914s run!! WTF.gif

I have 4, non run sad.gif

One of them is registered in my name!
That has to count for something? confused24.gif



Posted by: sb914 Apr 20 2017, 04:04 AM

Looks like Jett has the lead with four.

Posted by: naro914 Apr 20 2017, 07:02 AM

Just 2...both running really well (finally!!), but only one is registered...

Posted by: Coondog Apr 20 2017, 07:17 AM

And the winner is this guy..... first.gif

Definitely not registered and not many teeners.
This guy has a couple although!Attached Image

Posted by: Coondog Apr 20 2017, 07:57 AM

Nice call on that pic. Which always brings up the age old question of how many road worthy 914s are left ?? and at what point is a graveyard 914 going to start commanding $10,000 or more.

Posted by: hot_shoe914 Apr 20 2017, 09:49 PM

2 running
3 registered and insured
5 total
2 more runners and 1 roller in my shop that don't belong to me.

I could have 3 running real quick if I'd install a motor back in one, the other two are going to take some time.
