Congratulations Eric. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif)
We are so proud of you and your beautiful tribute 914-6 GT (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
When you opened up the rear trunk you displayed your 914-6 tool kit and the rear fog light made my heart go pitter-patter. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/flag.gif)
Wow, what a wonderful presentation. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)
You made my bucket list of joy when we toured the tunnel of trees on M-119 during the Porsche parade 2013.. Wonderful memories. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif)
Tom


You made "MY" bucket list. Thank you for being you. Much love brother (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif)

A small number (2, I think) of 914/6s were delivered with Sportomatics. Uncertain if any four bangers had the Sporto (shudder), beyond perhaps a prototype or test mule.

Quite a lot more than 2 actually ...

You are right. I was probably confusing with the two factory 914/8s. Relatively small number, for sure. Was it twenty-something?

It was fun to see how out of his element Jay was. Seemed like he was a little off balance and scrambling to ketchup. Hope he learned something about these great cars.

Eric, what a fantastic build. You should be very proud.

Eric, you represented the 914 community well. It must be a be a weird sensation riding shotgun with Jay driving & evaluating your car.

Bravo!!

This was a nice feature. I got into 914s in 1976 when I was 6. I always thought it was unfair the negative reaction to the car when it was so fun to drive in and enjoy.

Even when I was DDing a 993, I was still a 914 guy.

The car, this site, and the people have made 40 years enjoyable. Thanks, let's make it 40 more.

PS - I need to get off my butt and finish my 74 /6 conversion.

Hi!

Saw the episode. Not bad, but I heard them taking jabs on the 914. Especially the son of the head designer whatever his name is (spoiled rich brat (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)). Just wanted to share that because I get smirks from the cocky Porsche owners myself. Haha whatever!

Great job Eric. Sad you never learned how to drive an “anemic 1.7” but maybe you will learn someday (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
