Why?

This seems almost like being married to the woman of your dreams, getting along for 20 yrs, and selling her off to the Russian mafia.

What could you come up with that could possibly be cooler, better, or more deadly at its chosen activity?

David, Very nicely put! After reading your comment, I had to ask myself the same question. It's just that I've done everything with the car that can be done. I truly love the car and it would tear me up to sell it but I do not seeing myself running it in the near future. I like a challenge and I've started another project. It's a street legal/auto-x combo 914 with a 3.2. It's not nearly as fast as the one posted here. If it sells.....OK. If not....still OK! I'm sure I would regret selling it in time. We'll see what happens.

Heh, heh, yes I did and when all was said & done, got more for it & all the "stuff"
than I was asking....and more than you offered. Selling "stuff" in chunks worked out well but I could have done better parting it out. The buyer sold the motor alone for 8K
then all the 914 6 conversion "stuff" for a bunch more. This nearly covered the price for an infusion of Subi HP (about 70hp & 70 ftlbs ....stock motor numbers).

In case you missed it:

Of course he can no longer run in the Parade....but he has bigger fish to fry.

Good luck with your sale. So, now whatcha' gonna do?

Wow, that's quite a conversion. Running in XP or EM?

My 2.8 E/M car listed here is done and it's still the faster auto-x car in the world (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif) and I love the car but last year I started looking for a different kind of challenge. I wanted a street legal lethal auto-x car so I've been running a 3.2 conversion car. Greg Fordhal built this beast a while back. It's quite strong. Obviously not as fast as the E/M car but I can drive it to the events. Glad your sale worked out so well for you.

I remember when Greg built that car. It was WAY too much car for the guy who had it built.

Not Too much for me! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

I'm getting ready to fit 8 and 9x15's with 225 and 275 Hoosier A-6's.

Meanwhile bump for my 2.8 beast!

Yeah, it wouldn't be for a real driver but the guy who had it built wasn't a driver.

Good luck on the sale. Car looks like a lot of fun.

The car that inspired my 914 addiction. I spoke to you at an autocross (possibly ACU4) and ended up selling my WRX and buying a 914.

Good luck with your sale. This is really an amazingly fast car!
