Come celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Introduction of the Porsche 914 September 12-15, 2019 in Banner Elk, NC.

REGISTRATION CLOSED

What better way to celebrate than with over 100 fellow 914 enthusiasts for a weekend of driving, showing and socializing! So finish up that project, dust off the garage queen, trailer that race car or hop in your daily driver and head to the mountains of Western North Carolina for a weekend you will not soon forget.

The fun begins Thursday afternoon with event check-in. Watch and be amazed as fellow teeners arrive and the parking area fills up with a kaleidoscope of colors.

Friday begins early with the “main event” - a drive on the area's fantastic mountain roads. With planned rest and lunch stops along the way, the daylong drive is a 914 lover's utopia.

After the drive, attendees have Friday evening free to do as they wish. Many will gather to eat dinner and then later hang out and socialize. Informal swap meets generally pop up about this time so bring parts or cash.

Saturday begins with a People's Choice Car Show followed by a “free” afternoon. During the afternoon, the event promoters will be busy preparing for the evening's Awards Banquet where upwards of $10k worth of “goodies” are given out thanks to our generous sponsors.

Sunday begins with the sound of 914s rambling out of the parking lot as the event ends and attendees head home.

Throughout the weekend there will be scheduled “clinics” demonstrating how to perform a variety of maintenance and upgrade projects. Also, a 914 Tech Quiz is generally given towards the end of the Car Show.

My wife received the update from the FB page and hasn’t stopped talking about it. We had a great time last year!!

Posted by: dr914@autoatlanta.com Mar 16 2019, 10:04 AM

for such an event as the 50th we should be able to round up 200 914s to attend. Many of us will not be around for the 75th. Every east coast 914 guy should make an effort to attend this historic event.

Posted by: 914four Mar 16 2019, 10:28 AM

Looking forward to another great event and this time celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 914!

No need to limit it to east coast teeners. We have quite a few folks who travel from west of the Mississippi to attend. beerchug.gif

2.) The M471 car for 100 cars attending smilie_pokal.gif
3.) The 916 for 150 smilie_pokal.gif
4.) All three for 200 cars attending first.gif

Though I think it would be awesome to see 200 914s in one spot, a more realistic goal for this event is 100+ 914s bye1.gif

You and Clay were great tour guides last year. I might take a more northern route but if I decide to go thru Texas I’ll plan to hook up with you guys. The exploding trans was not bad as I was in front of you, it might have been a mess behind you when the fluid dumped on your exhaust. Looking forward to seeing you guys again

Thanks. I'll consider it seriously now. I'm gonna be there for sure... Registered #31 and check is in the mail!... I'm just not sure if I'm driving the 993 or flying into Charlotte and renting a car... OR if the 914 is by chance driving by then. Hopefully if I don't have my own 914 with me, someone takes me under their wing and has a spare passenger seat spot for Friday's driving tour smile.gif

Will probably trailer down, I'm sure the car would make the drive, but without AC my GF would be less than happy.

See you all there. beerchug.gif

Betty insisted I post this, and it gives a free icon_bump.gif to the thread.

Last night I had a dream. No, not the one from last Okteenerfest with Bob and Bill in Lederhosen and tu-tus. This is completely different.

I was trying to get the 914s out of the garage so we could leave for Okteenerfest. But my garage had grown until it was huge! And I couldn't get to the 914s because I was trying to get all the camels out of the way. They just kept walking around saying "Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike" like the camel in the Geico hump day commercial. I just couldn't get through them all to get to the cars! screwy.gif


Yea, I know I have an overactive, weird imagination that creeps into my dreams. But at least my dreams are entertaining. Betty's all time favorite is the one about the old, toothless shark attacking me and gumming my legs. I woke up with the blanket wrapped around my legs. av-943.gif


And the first person to come up to me and say "Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike" is gonna get it!!!!

I wanted to throw this out there to all that are planning to trailer your car...
An email will be sent out prior to the event with details, but we have VERY limited trailer parking. If you trailered to Banner Elk before, you know we have to use the grassy area behind the parking lot. This year...hopefully...we will be a bit more organized about it and have people access the area via the side road and not through the parking lot. We will once again have 914 parking only in the back and side lots.

According to registrations, we have over 15 trailers we have to figure out SO FAR. We'll make it work, but just be prepared that you may not have an 'optimum' trailer parking spot and things may get a little tight.... so if you can... PLEASE drive instead of trailering.

i was considering trailering like last year but, its such a great drive from Charlotte to Banner Elk, but too hot from there to here in SC so I am considering taking it up early and leaving it at my sons house in Charlotte a few weeks before, then we can come up that Thursday and leave the truck/trailer in Charlotte and drive the 914 the rest of the way!. Gets some great driving in still on the way up!

Best Western is the host hotel and where everything happens: registration, dinner/banquet, the door prize display of items, Friday drivers meeting and where the drive starts from, wash station for the cars...and just the general gatherings each day/night to hang out and lie about our cars... a big part of Okteenerfest is the comraderie of the people so just hanging with everyone each night IMO is one of the best parts...(and not worrying about drinking and driving)

I have a couple of these and they are great! Also if you are an attendee, PM me for a special deal on flags. No one else is making these flags and they are in high demand. Kennedy RPM Flags is making this special deal for attendees to show their support for the 914. So this is an additional bonus for attending!

As a prose this year, Chris will be providing one of his amazing engine lift plates, an Oil Pressure Relief Valve, and a $120 gift certificate for the event.

You need to call 1) to get the special rate and 2) because our block takes up a majority of the hotel it won’t let people book online because the rooms are blocked off. There are still a few rooms left as of last week.

I may be the first casualty of Okteenerfest. My wife has just been diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer and will start radiation/chemo immediately and probably won't finish until early September...then surgery. Way too many unknowns for me to be away from her so I'm out. I have 2 rooms booked which I will cancel over the next couple days.
I understand if there are no refunds and if that's the case can someone mail my t-shirt?
I will, however, try to drive my car on 9/14.
Maybe next year.
Have fun and stay safe.

Oh no Michael! Nadine and I are very sorry to hear about your wife. Absolutely you need to stay there....right now she needs all the support you can provide.

We will obviously miss you but we will be thinking of you and your wife. Tell her to get well soon from all of us!

Posted by: naro914 Aug 1 2019, 06:36 AM

There are a bunch of people that have hotel rooms and have NOT registered yet. PLEASE...do not book a room until after you registered. Reserving yourself a room under the block because you THINK you might come, then cancelling the room after the special rate date is pretty rude to those that genuinely need the room because they are actually coming.

This happened last year in Helen - people booked rooms, never registered, then cancelled the room after some people that couldnt get a room already decided not to come. And when those rooms opened up at the last minute, the rates were now MUCH higher than our negotiated rate was.

Again...PLEASE do not book a room unless you are definitely coming. (I understand last minute changes in plans and all that you need to cancel... but at least register and send payment if you're actually planning to be there).

OK so we have some great sponsors! Tarett is one of the best.

Anyone need a front https://www.tarett.com/items/914-products/914-suspension/914-swaybars~drop-links/front-swaybar-assy-65-89-911-912-930-914-fsba_-detail.htm?

With the quality of Tarett it is hard to completely give away this $525 setup but Ira is offering one at a 30% discount. Also, swaybar installation will be one of the tech sessions this year!

So for those of you willing to buy the swaybar at a 30% discount, sign up for the tech session to have it installed while you are at Okteenerfest! Because of the limited time at the event the best option would be for a people that have a swaybar currently to sign up for install portion. But we won't limit peoples ability to sign up but if you don't currently have a swaybar installed you can still get the 30% off but the install will passed to someone else that committed to buying.

If you don't win the tech Session install, Ira has committed to offering discounts for anyone else that wants to make a purchase.

So talk to all of your friend and see if we can get enough people to buy so that you can get the following discounts

10% of for 1 to 5 kits sold
20% for for 5 or more kits

Oh and Ira will ship all of them to Okteenerfest so you wont have to pay shipping!

For full disclosure, I committed to Tarett to buy the tech session swaybar at the discount. I did this so if no one else commits to the 30% price, we will still have the tech session. If someone else will buy the swaybar, I will pay for one at the discount Tarett has offered.

Hello Dave, yes I am coming, and I can't wait to see your awesome car again.

Bob, sorry for registering for the hotel, ahead the event registration. I thought the hotel block expired before the event registration, but I could not find those dates on the website or in this thread, I must have missed them. (Edit- Block of rooms are released Aug 12th, it is in the Okteenerfest email)

Either way, registered for both, and check is in the mail.
Thanks to all for coordinating!

You all know https://vintagecarleds.com/shop/7-inch/vcm3-7-inch-led-headlight-kit/ provides quality lighting solutions for many vintage cars. This year they are introducing a smaller more compact solution to converting the 914 to modern LED technology.

We all do performance modifications to our cars but this in one that will pay back many times in increased safety and visibility.

Not only is Matt and https://vintagecarleds.com/shop/7-inch/vcm3-7-inch-led-headlight-kit/ providing a set for the prize drawing, they are sending another set for the tech session where they will be personally attending to answer all of your questions! PM me to get entered to have the LED headlights installed in your car. There will also be some additional goodies for the lucky winner.

As if that is not amazing enough, they are also providing a 15% discount on purchases as an Okteenerfest special. It will be hard to match this discount so if you are considering going to LEDs go to https://vintagecarleds.com/shop/7-inch/vcm3-7-inch-led-headlight-kit/ and use code OKTEENERFEST15 to get a 15% discount.

Even if you are coming to the event and entering to win the tech session, go to Vintage LED and buy. If you win, I am sure there will be multiple people who will be glad to take them off your hands.

This is an amazing show of support for the 914. Thanks Matt!

I think we all know Ben of https://914-6werkshop.com/ makes great products and does some amazing stuff. Anyone doing a six conversion or has missing engine sheet metal 914-6 WerkShop has you covered.

If you coming to Okteenerfest it gets even better. Ben is sending a complete set of https://914-6werkshop.com/product/914-6-engine-sheet-metal/for some lucky attendee!

Attached Image

He is also sending some discount cards and while not quite ready for the website, Ben is also expanding out to make 914 mufflers! They are similar to the OEM 911 mufflers internally, so they flow nicely.

They retail for $850 but for Okteenerfest attendees and 914 world members he is offering a considerably discounted price of $700 plus shipping. We are working with Ben to get some photos and will get them up as soon as we can!

A usual http://www.restoration-design.com/ is helping out!

Peter is going to be providing samples of their new alternator harness and engine regulator harness for demonstration and possible installation. He is also planning some other goodies that we don't know the details on yet.

But he is also going to continue the http://www.restoration-design.com/store/product/PP336S Discount he provided last year. The 20% discount on the springs brings the price of a set to $49.60!

Attached Image

PM me for payment details and specify early or late. I will bring the spring to Okteenerfest for everyone that makes the purchase.

Wow this is really cool. Doug Leehr is providing some really awesome set of aluminum rocker panels.

These are made out of 1/16” aluminum and weigh a fraction of a steel set but have much better corrosion resistance. While they will come with mounting hardware, winner will have to paint to their preference.

Rumor has it he will have a few sets to sell at the event as well.

He is also sending a kit to block off the front bumper shock holes for those that backdate bumpers. It will have both plates, gaskets, and mounting hardware.

At Stop: Do I put in Neutral or Sync to first Gear and hold clutch?
Pop out of first gear: Some time hard to get into First gear or part into First gear. Other time no problem

For me during the build clinic I gained a lot of information when you reviewed the things that typically fail and those that don't so that would be useful. Also the cost of some of the bearings are very high so it is good to know which ones you are likely to have to replace.

Explain stock gearing, modifications that can be made, and in what application does it make sense. Everyone I know seems to think the 914 needs a taller 5th gear so the engine will only be at 2,000 RPM while cruising on the highway which is a bad idea.

Address what HP a stock 901 can handle and improvements that can be made to deal with higher HP.

Bring a stack for people to see and look at gears.

Address pros/cons of LSD and what options are available.

Side shift vs tail shift and converting tail to side.

Looking at going to Okteenerfest again this year. Went last year and had a great time and gained a lot of inspiration.

Wife cannot attend with me. Host hotel is filled. Wondering if anyone may be looking to split a room and defray some of the lodging costs? Anyone need a roommate?

This is a very generous community as I've learned by reading these posts. However, sharing a room with an unknown is a bit Weird so I do understand.

Thanks for considering.

Registration for Okteenerfest 2019 is now officially closed. Including a last minute registration (a new 914 owner from Georgia), there are 154 people signed up to attend.

This event has grown from 40+ people and just over 2 dozen 914s in 2013 to this year's record setting 154 attendees. And, though 15 914s will be left at home, 79 will attempt to make it to Okteenerfest... 22 being trailered and 57 being driven to the event! piratenanner.gif

The next couple of weeks are going to be crazy for many of us as we make the mad dash to prep our 914s for this special weekend. See you all in September!

Yes.. it will be running at Okteenerfest. Lots of things won't be perfect, but it will be there.

I was thinking about bringing some ramps to put the back end up in the air so everyone can see underneath.

last 2 years actually and remember 2 years ago we even had power outages in Helen due to the tornado damage from that storm(Matthew I think) so here is praying for no storm to contend with in 2 weeks- we are moving the next 2 days and our forecast in coastal SC is 65% chance of rain and storms, headbang.gif pat.gif

We are planning lunch in Knoxville on the way in on Thursday. Anyone who is traveling through Knoxville is welcome to join us. Details are in the DFW Caravan thread.

We can get a large group headed from there to Banner Elk. biggrin.gif

I would like to propose a HUGE ceremonial box of Band-Aids be given at the Saturday awards banquet to:
"The Person With The Most Injuries To Their Body, Received As A Result Of Thrashing Their Car Until The Very Last Minute Trying To Get It To Okteenerfest 2019".

(The thoughts that come to you, standing in the pharmacy, in the aisle with all of the First Aid stuff, holding a big ol' box of Band-Aids, thinking to yourself "maybe I should get two?")


I'll even supply the box of 'Ceremonial Band-Aids' to be given away... we seem to have more than one of them. biggrin.gif

You want to talk about fixed?! Clay was saying the other day there should be an award at Okteenerfest for the 914 with the most spark plugs (his new engine is a twin plug with a grand total of 12). I just told him to quit trying to think of pity awards he could win and get back to working on the freaking car! biggrin.gif

Well... I'm sure that the 914 isn't making it (currently at Translog getting the engine compartment painted, etc.) and the 993 is stuck in the shop having an AC repair completed and was getting an alignment before the 15+ hour drive (round trip to/from Baltimore/Banner Elk) but needs some rear upper control arms so I doubt it'll be ready by next Wednesday to drive down... so, looks like I'll just be driving down the daily driver (2014 VW Tiguan R-Line). Anyone need anything? Air Compressor? Floor jack? Air tank? I'll have plenty of room to haul crap down now... LOL. Still excited about coming... just wont have a Porsche with me this year.

In the meantime, here's some pics of what I wont be bringing... haha

One “new” item that may get into the garage before next week is my original back pad was recently recovered by a local auto interior guy. Foam is in great shape, and a month ago just a day before my heart attack episode I removed the old vinyl, with intention of recovering it myself but with having to move etc I didn’t think it would get done, so many thanks to my friend Jim that knew this guy and took it all over to get done! Now
I just need to locate an OEM back pad light !

Mike , looks like you are going to make it! Praying for it to fire up and run on with out complication.

Little time with the sewing machine and I whipped up some protectors for the tie down straps going through the wheels.

When I picked up the Cayman last year I had to trailer it home and I had cut up a old blanket in to pieces to wrap around the straps so they wouldn't rub the finish on the wheels. It worked, but looked kind of shitty with the loose ends flapping in the wind.

so this morning I dug out the pieces and sewed them into tubes. Then I can slide them over the tie down straps where they hit the wheels.

Yeah I am trailering down.

Since the car doesn't need the engine pulled out or anything like that.....
All it will need is a bath before we go and I am ready.

See you then.

Well there you go. 2 links about $20. I guess you will have to re-register, but just once and never again.

Here in middle TN they have a few more years of emissions testing. That is why I went Antique with my 86 VW. But I was always worried that I would get pulled over. They say, if you get a ticket, driving on a weekday, you could have to pay ever year's registration fee since you got the tag.... confused24.gif

Another benefit of going with a 70s tag is most cops don't know it is antique. With yours, it is right there in front of them. Now get off the PC and start breaking in that new engine! first.gif first.gif

I’ll be there for the first time in three years. I attended the first three then we had three years of hurricanes and related damage in SC. This year no hurricanes. However, I did have to go to DC for work this week so won’t be in a 914. I’ll be driving down from DC Thursday. I did drive my Boxster to DC. So, at least I will be in a Porsche!

Well I got one of my 3 punch list issues taken care of- back pad recovered and last night reassembled! Should get this in car tonight!
- this was a 914rubber.com kit, with my original backpad and foam.

- so btw I may be selling my other back pad- it’s the fiberglass ones that have a 1/8”foam and wrapped with sport vinyl, perfect for someone that wants a backpad that does not stick out as far as a standard one, say if you use some type or racing seat like Sheels etc. my car had 911/993 seat in it at one time and the seats could go all the way back - PM anyone if interested- that one is also black.

In total, this group has owned well over 300 914s over the years... this number does not include the half dozen who answered "I lost count" happy11.gif

We hope to see ~70 of these 914s at Okteenerfest aktion035.gif

Looks like a couple of us have had mechanical problems. I had to go to Virginia for work before coming to Okteenerfest. So, rather than be Porscheless I drove the Boxster. Was 10 minutes from the hotel in Banner Elk and lost the Boxster engine. Probably IMS.

Much thanks to DrPhil and his friend Jim. They were about an hour behind me. When he got to my location Phil unloaded his 914 from the trailer and gave me a ride to Enterprise so I could rent a car (made it 7 minutes before closing). In the meantime Jim stayed with my Boxster until AAA showed up. I got back to the car just as he finished loading it on the flatbed.

Oh well..... crap happens! At least I made it this year even if it is in a rented Kia!

My first Octeenerfest was in a rental car but I passengered in Bob's/Saigon car and had a great time.

My issue turned out to be the fuel pump. Got hot in the Atlanta traffic Thursday afternoon (98 degrees plus bad traffic) and the pressure dropped, causing the rise in AFR and the rough running. Glad I turned around and headed home though we hate that we missed Okteenerfest this year.

We did go to the PCNA event for the 914 on Saturday in Atlanta and the car ran fine but the event was a bust from a participation perspective....only 10 914s.

George Hussey from AA has loaned PCNA 7 of his very collectible 914s (including his 916) for their museum for a few months. George did a great job giving a very informative and entertaining talk with a history on each car. So we missed Okteenerfest but did get in a little "914" fun this weekend.

So Okteenerfest 2019 was a phenomenal success and a great time was had by all! I believe we had 60 cars there, Bob and the gang will need to confirm, and over 150 people in attendance. We gave out over 150+ prizes as part of the raffle drawings and we added in a trivia quiz this year that was spur of the moment but made for some lively entertainment.

Much thanks to all our sponsors for supporting this event and providing so many prizes and even more thanks to all those who attended. I will echo what Bob said on Saturday night, without you all, there would be no gathering of truly wonderful and people who all love a unique and often maligned little car. The 914 may have been the bastard child of Porsche and Volkswagen but the people who cherish this rather sexy illegitimate child continue to impress and amaze me every year at this event.

I belong to many automotive clubs from Mercedes to MGs to the Antique Automobile Club of America and although each have their quirks and personalities, the people who own 914s are by far my favorite! It is a community with a wealth of humor, mirth and giving who always step up to help others in need and never put on airs.

I hope to see you all again next year and lets see if we can break the record of cars and participants!
