I'm sure by now all of you have read about Mary Shortridge. Her brother Lee Cyr was a long time 914 enthusiast. Lee had put his life on hold to move back home and take care of his family. Through Mary, we have learned that Lee was a great guy... unfortunately, his life was tragically cut short in an auto accident.

In Lee's memory the family decided to take on the task of restoring Lee's 914.The restoration so far has entailed extensive body work and paint, a full engine rebuild and transmission rebuild - basically everything. Through the efforts of 914world members and vendors, part donations have come in from all over the country. Thank you ALL again.

Some of the 914world members have been working in the background to find a way to help complete the car that Lee loved and his family holds dear. With Mary's approval, we are organizing a recon team to go in the weekend of January 30th to set up the car, tables, parts and figure out what is needed to complete a build. Then three weeks later, the weekend of February 20th the event will take place. This is when we come together to actually build the car.

The build on February 20th will be in Garden City Kansas. It will be held at a very special site which has been arranged for us (it's nice). Additionally, there will be food, T-shirts, and games.... it will be a purposeful reconstruction of a very special 914 AND a fun 914 event and celebration. Sign ups for the event will happen shortly.

Anyone who has ever organized a 914World event knows there are costs associated with putting on an event. A major challenge will be to get members to Garden City in February on short notice. Usually these events are planned well in advance. Costs associated with running an event are usually supported in part by an event fee paid by attendees. Of course we are hoping for a large turn out but in order to insure success we are looking to raise $1500 from members here.

One of the costs we are looking to cover is airfare for one of our own professional Porsche mechanic's to oversee this build. Safety is our first consideration with the assembly of this vehicle. We will also need to have tools and supplies available for the build team.

We are not raising money for Parts. Mary has graciously accepted the parts you all have provided. She is willing to continue to accept your parts gifts but insisted no money is to be raised to purchase parts. Her family will make all final parts purchases.

All funds will be managed by two long time members, and any money left over will be donated to public NET radio http://www.netnebraska.org/radio/ in Lee's honor. Every donator will be recognized unless you wish to remain anonymous.

Donations can be made by Paypal to: edwardblume@gmail.com managed by Rob Ways (RobW), or by check / mail to Mike Moorman (Kansas 914). For questions PM: RobW, Rick 918-s, and Kansas 914. We will also be tracking the tally.

The event itself will have an entry fee of $35 which will include a tribute T-shirt, games, and other extras. Additionally, T-shirts will be available for non-attendees for a short time period for $25- again, all proceeds above the costs of the event will go to NET radio.

Thank you for your interest, support, and for being a part of this build!

I'd sure like to fly out there and help with the car, but the money I would spend on travel could be put to better use on the project.So I'm in for a cash donation (I'll need to check my bank balance first) and a T shirt.

This is just the kind of event that affords everyone the opportunity to be involved. Whether you travel to be part of the build off or send a small donation or purchase a t shirt to support the event. Thank you for caring.

Here's a turkey day bump. I hope everyone had a wonderful day with family and friends.

If you have a little time to read through the above post and are inspired to get involved with this wonderful event. It would mean alot to me and others who have brought this opportunity to you.

This a a chance to help a family fulfill their commitment to each other and build a 914. With your financial support or by hands on wrenching we can get this car finished.
Wrenching skills or not, All are welcome and encouraged to come out for the fun. Our group has been brought together through our common interest in 914's but we have come to realize it's about the people. Please help make this the special event become a World success!

I am in for a donation and a t-shirt.

I'd love to go in person but I don't like to fly and its a little far to drive.

I am sure everyone who attends will learn a lot about the right way to put a 914
together. When I finished painting my shell six months ago I thought I was done.
Little did I know how many things you have to figure out in order to reassemble
one.

Thanks John. You rock! Many of us have been touched by Mary's extraordinary journey and when she drives away in Buttercup in a few months, there will be a lot of us riding along. Thanks again!

This is going to be great learning event for anyone not already in the 914 expert category. I know I hope to learn a lot before I put the '72 back together this Spring.

We hope to announce the build team leader soon - he is a master....

Thanks John,

You are very generous!!

I mentioned you to Mary's body guy on my first visit to see the car - he made a quick rotisserie for her car. I had to tell him about your project - you have inspired a lot of people!
