Dumb question, but is the car a '74 or a '70? Eric, you say it's a '70 tub, but Jay introduced the car as a '74"
Inquiring minds want to know?

No, he said "... if this was a '70 ... "

At about 7:30 he does say it was a '70 tub.

Nice film. Very well produced and a clear exhibition of Eric's talent and commitment to the marque.

Not to say screw the 911 snobs but I have owned outright most every p-car available from 62 notchback to current day C4S and everything in between. Not a a dealer but a broke enthusiast with a hankering for stinkin squareweave underfoot or a smokin hot interior in a 74 Targa...... literally..

For me.......... The 914 is the new norm.

No heater.

No radio.

No defrost.

Just a simple car with a hand throttle to warm it up / and a screaming engine right behind your brain just to the right center. My Fuely ap shows a reasonable 17 MPG on a 3.0 ^ on Weber 40's. ... for the money, one cannot do any better.

Tomorrows drive is to a place called Queen Valley off the 101 and 60 east. This place may sound questionable to Larmo and others in SoCal - but out here / open land and open roads.

In open land AZ, it is an flat straight road that goes on for ever and has at its end, a legal open shooting range where a man can set up an electric flinger for clays and a picnic. Photos to follow.

Sidebar: Still testing the wierd failure of the MSD ignition. So I will drive further and further out until AAA comes to save me again......... so far perfect...

past pickups to follow..

Oh yea, at least for me the next video that pops up is another Jay Leno's Garage featuring a pair of nice early 911's from a shop called LA Workshop 5001.

A quick google search mentions that these are $400,000 builds! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif)

At about 7:30 he does say it was a '70 tub.

The way i heard it, as they were discussing details, he said:

"We made this ourselves. If this was a '70 tub ... I didn't go too crazy, you can find all those parts but it was just one of those things, you know ... with a '74 car ..."

I was searching for something else on Youtube and came across this earlier about 16 minutes after it was uploaded.

Cool episode, represented the 914 very well.

Congrats Eric Shea!
