Are there any shift pattern "plates" available that display our 914 shift pattern?

I have the 917 wood knob...In the rare event i may leave my car with a valet or let a hot chick try to drive it they don't know the pattern.

Maybe somebody can create a small plate (group buy?) with an engraved pattern that can be mounted to the dash?

Any ideas?

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/WTF.gif) You would actually let a valet park your 914?? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)

Gary - Aside from Elliot's well placed comment ....

IIRC there were 911/912 shift pattern decals &/or plates for their optional 5-speed 901 tranny (same pattern on 914s), so try looking at the Porsche Classic parts, Einmalig in Huntington Beach, & the other Porsche parts houses for one.

Back in the day most folks just used either the factory Bakelite knob or the AMCO aftermarket Leather wrapped or Walnut ones with the shift pattern, if they needed clues.

Back in the day I never let a valet park my car, but do admit to letting 1 or 3 girlfriends, a fiancee, & 2 wives drive it. At worst, they started in 2nd where they thought 1st would be!

I have the leather wrapped AMCO knob with the Porsche crest - so also "blind" to the pattern.

There are some members doing CNC & die-cut stuff on here, so maybe someone will step up, if you can't find the 911/912 ones.

I see that you're on the LA to Canada Freeway (local radio ad), so Einmalig & Sierra Madre in Pas are close to you. Some online searches will save you time & miles though.

I do the 911 and 914 ones in Delrin. The real issue is the insert needs the base to be machined. Which would require you to send the knob in.

Also gonna have the 911 and 914 knobs (with option for set screw) on sale for black Friday.

I always thought that to steal a 914 you better put it on a trailer

Even if you have the key still takes me 5-10 mins driving to
Adjust to the car and forget about driving the work truck



But then again

The title of your post led me to believe that (like me) you have trouble with your memory. I was going to recommend the shift pattern on a tattoo on the back of your hand but thought better of it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

Went somewhere several years back with my son. We parked and he ask why I didn't lock the car.

I told him that should a thief figure out how to start it, he would play hell figuring out how to shift the gears.

Well the main thought is I want to teach my son stick. Valet would be a nice option at certain times. Still too uncertain

My know is the 917 knob VaccaRabitte makes. Got it a couple buys ago. Love it and don't want to change or cut the top.

Maybe just the insert by itself velcroed to the dash?
