hello everyone. I am new to this scene so please be patient with me. I haven't been in the car forum world since the late 90's (Hondatech) followed by some brief usage of VWvortex. I was glad to learn of this community and all of its resources. My name is Dan, I live in Charleston SC, and I have recently acquired a 74 model. While I was not a previous enthusiast of this model, this little thing is growing on me. Don't really have the plans figured out or what direction I plan on going. I am no stranger to the European car world but this marks my first Porsche so that in and of itself is quite exciting. As with everything on the internet, I am well aware its worthless without images so....enjoy.
Good way to start with a Bumble Bee! Welcome to the madness.
Welcome to the madness Dan
Nice looking Bee.
Would love to see it at http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=308716this fall
Hey that's a great start. I would just suggest you read, read, read the threads on this forum before you make any hard or fast plans. Until then drive the car and enjoy it.
Nice car! Doesn't look like it needs much, maybe just some
welcome fellow South Carolinian! there are a few more of us here,
since you are new to the 914 world, anything you need to know about these cars is right here at your disposal--
of course we like pictures and stories! please share your purchase and car history!
would love to see more of the car and what you have!
Dan, you should introduce yourself to Jeff Bowlsby. He is an expert on the Can Am or LE Models. He'll want your VIN# for his registry. You could PM him directly or edit your title so it says Bumblebee. He doesn't troll the site as much as many of us, but he'd pick up on it if he saw the word Bumblebee...
"this little thing is growing on me"
Starts out like an innocent freckle, then turns into raging cancerous obsession.
Welcome, I'm also on VWVortex/TCL I was probably just getting started on there in the late 90's though.
.. welcome and this is a fantastic community... If you are unsure then ask away as the experts are always lurking in the back ground ready to pounce with answers..
Buzz Buzz man!
Search can be tricky sometimes, so use google and type "914world" before what you want to search for.
Great choice. Lots of support and information here.
If you need any help just ask.
EVENTUALLY, will be redoing the interior as it appears a rat(s) have been living inside for many years. Don't know how long the car has been sitting up.
Looks like you got stung by a BEE! Great start!!
Fortunately, 914Rubber.com has almost a complete reproduction interior at very reasonable prices.
Except the targa bar pad. We've begged and begged but Mark just teases us on the targa bar pad...
Here's my interior. All of it from 914Rubber.com. Except that damned targa bar pad.
Nice car, enjoy the hell out of it.
Hi Dan, great looking 914LE!
I manage the 914LE Registry...is your car on it?
Please contact me through my website or this forum.
Nice start is right. Nice grab and welcome.
Great looking car.
Welcome, your in the right place. I know the calipers can be rebuilt simply enough, but you may want to check out PMB performance. He strips them and re plates them, not your typical rattle can rebuild. I have done my share of brakes and PMS's look so much better when done.
Hit me up if you have any questions on rubber, interior or anything else you may need.
And yes Rob you will not have to wait too much longer for the roll bar pads
Welcome to mid-engine-madness! Your in the right place people here will help you out and try to keep you from those that will just take your money.
............everyone knows any car with yellow on it makes it faster
You done good! Some of us start at the bottom and work up. You came right out of the gate with an LE. Good job. Congratulations!
