Greeting Earthlings!

Got my 1st of many 914's back in '96 or so...'75 with a bad 1.8, installed new motor, drove it for a while and took apart...sold or cut it up, I don't remember...I've repeated that process about 4 times. Then finally in '07 I sold my last 914 along with my trailer and sold or gave away almost everything I had Porsche related except for a few small models and tee shirts. If you look at my member number, I have been around for a long time...I even have a "Smilie" (IMG:style_emoticons/default/MDB2.gif)

At the beginning of '15 I mentioned to a co-worker I'd like another 914 and we made a deal for his in which I was able to make payments and I paid it off last week. ($200 a month for a grand total of $2000)

The car:

1973 which originally had a 1.7 in it. The PO installed a 2.0 bus motor with megaquirt on it and drove it for a few years and parked it about 4 years ago due to no more compression in cylinder #3.

I knew the car had some engine compartment rust in the hell hole, but it is worse that I thought it had, but I still think I got an okay deal on the car considering I was able to make payments and I knew the history of the car before I even considered buying it.

5x130mm redrilled /4 hubs with extra long studs up front with slide on spacer and bolt on 5x130 to 5x130 bolt on spacer in the back, not keen on either end.



Plans:

Install 1.8 motor I picked up from McMark after I fix a few broken exhaust studs (not Marks fault)

Redo all suspension bushings and possibly the shocks (I think it has KYB's)

Undecided on the wheels, now it has 16x7 53mm offset Phonedials with 205/50/16s.

Fix hell hole.

Fix up the interior.

Do "something" with the turn signals front and back, I don't like 'em (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif)

Body needs some straightening and paint for sure. I might toss the green Porsche decal(s) for nothing at all or a different color.

Below are pictures as the car sits across the street. Why across the street and not at my house? Well, I made a deal with the wife that my on going 6 year project car will be driving before I bring the 914 home, that will happen once I install the entire front suspension, install a wiring harness and finish building the engine and install that also.

So possibly before the end of the year the 914 will be home!
