Ok guys,

After a few "near misses" I still did not find the right car. The world has been very helpful with a few guys performing PPI's for me. Big thanks to them.

In the meantime I kicked out the 2008 HD Roadking classic which increases my budget a bit. Still looking for the same :

* as from 1973
* chrome or normal bumpers, don't like the big bumpers
* 2.0 or more
* prefer flashy colors (olympia or arctic blue, tangerine orange etc)
* still allergic to rust and mechanical issues (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
* like the appearance package especially fuchs wheels
* budget around 20K (depending on location of the car this can still be stretched a bit)
* no projects, car should be ready to enjoy

PM me but expect a list with a million questions fm me and a PPI by a 914world guru (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Bye for now
Dax


Greetings fm Belgium,
I’m once again on the market to find a nice and honest 914. My wife thinks I’m crazy after the issue I had with buying overseas but I’m convinced that the best 914’s are on your side of the pool (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Last year I made the mistake to buy a 73 914 2.0 with appearance package in Olympia blue fm Ebay sight unseen. Spoke with the seller several times, pictures looked nice and the real owner was “a dentist” and the car was only used to make trips to his cabin by the lake blablabla. When deposit was placed, shipper and pickup was arranged I found out that the seller/builder was a guy banned on this forum and Pelican for being dishonest.

When the car arrived Rotterdam and I had my first look I felt sick to my stomach as the car was dripping oil, paintjob was crap, crunching 2nd gear, engine was not performing well on the single carb etc etc. In his description the car was restored (new shocks, new paint, no rust, strong engine etc) but stupid enough I did no PPI and did the payment outside Ebay. Tried to contact ebay but soon after his account disappeared, phonecalls left unanswered (old lady on the phone saying that she didn’t know any Danny H…. – just google)

Anyway I invested some money but still the car wasn’t good enough for me and sold it with a loss (informed the new owner about the flaws of the car).
Perhaps being a fool I’m on the hunt once again but it is stronger than myself. I will now only buy from longtime forummembers, will arrange PPI etc. Perhaps still not 100% watertight but ok, will see.

If anyone has for sale a nice 1973 2.0 in good condition pls let me know. I like the flashy colors like Olympia blue, orange and red but would consider other ones as well (no black). Prefer the fuchs wheels and centerconsole. Rips in seats, no problem I can re-upholster myself. Allergic to rust and mechanical issues so that part should be sorted. Don’t care much about originality as long as it is done properly. Seller has to be patience cause I need to arrange PPI, get a shipper, make payment etc . I’m an honest buyer but I can’t get it all done in one day.

The car I like very much is the red one fm Ontario/Canada but price is a bit too high (need to ship it, import etc). Don’t want to make an offer as I perhaps offend the seller (if the car is really as good as he describes then he will get it sold local). Budget about 15 K (with a little stretch for the right car). I don’t expect concours condition (ofcourse not) but I sometimes see cars sell really quick within my budget which I like.

If somebody out here has one for sale which is not advertised yet, or can assist somehow I would highly appreciate. No links to craiglist ads of sellers you don't know pls.

Final note: like the 944 s2 convertible (had one years ago but sold it to finance another project) as well but I don’t think that anybody of the aircooled lovers here has one (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Thks in advance
Dax

Msg sent as I don't see the car on their website.


Also contacted the owner of the sepia brown one on ebay (thks Mike in Munich) and even placed a few cautious bids (damn doing it again) but have a strong feeling that the car will score high (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

enjoy yr weekend

Without shipping/import taxes. Shippingcost itself can be a huge difference if the car is located close to a port or not. Washington for instance is also more expensive than LA.

Thks for responding

enjoy yr weekend !

This is the last message I got from Danny (NSFW)

"I will clue you in about somthing, That none of your click new abouty, The whole time that you boys were running your bullsit bad seller routine, Just to keep the people who you have been living off buying from you boys, I sent 20 parts out in good faith, If your a little slow i will spell it out for you, That means i send the part out even before they pay for it, Do you understand that, 22 parts were being deliverded to people as you boys sat their and bad mouthed me and the buisness and everything under the sun, I had so many emails from members who could not beleive you guys were really saying this crap, When i am Taking the risk of loosing thousands of dollars, You see here is what i know, The majority of 9145 guys arent skum bags like you, You guys screwed youselves while everybody watched your guys tv show, I wish i could show you how hard i am laughing at you all, You guys screwewd yourselves in front of thousands of whitnesse sayin what the hell are these jerk off talking abou, Then alot of them got pissed off because they are just people like me want a decent part for a decent price, I really apreciate the laughs evertime i tell this story, Go hide you heads, ha ha ha ha ha ha And by the way I Did around $ 600.00 in sales today every one was from the club, Have a great new year einstein,"

dax, I would sell you mine, but I think it is out of your Price Range.

It is the current Car of the Month (Voted in, but yet to be put on the Homepage (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif) )

I'm going to have my Knee Replaced within the next Month which means I won't be able to play with it for 6 months (not like I have ever driven it much). I have other projects to work on anyway!

I have a friend who has a 73 2.0 - all the "S" components. Phoenix Red. Paint is rough in a couple spots, but mostly fine in others. The car has an upgraded sway bar likely Weltmeister, and I believe Konis. Momo steering wheel. Runs great and is fun to drive. He doesn't want to sell it right away, but likely would in the upper teens.

Good luck with your search!
