I just read that they are closing and have a ton of 914 parts to offload


I’m very sad to see them go

You're about 2 months too late. I doubt there's much good stuff left by now ...

I thought the thing I read was dated late December??

Did individuals buy the stuff or did someone buy a large quantity to resell later?

It was my understanding that the Saturday meetings will continue, that EASY has become kind of a club house for Porsche, just no more parts sales.

Rod Emory bought the remaining inventory:

Here's a thread about it from November:

Some of us knew since early 2017 that this was going going to happen.

The way the article reads is the Emory didn't buy or take any 914, 924 or 944 parts. Anyone know for sure?

I wish the destination of the 914 parts was clearer. Although, I do know that there will be parts on here.

Rod did not purchase any of the 914 parts as per Rod himself. I have no idea as to who may have though.

I was there today—there are lots of 914 parts. Make your lists folks.

John said they’d be open maybe another month or so.

I got a few good bits in November. John was literally walking on top of a pile of 914 parts to sort through and get me a good one. Crunch, crunch, snap, "...oh, here it is!" (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)
He also sold me the wrong oil filter (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif)
End of of era! For us CSOB 914 owners finding parts will never be so EASY (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

What is he planning to do with what is left?
When is he closing?
I should be out there in the next 4 weeks for business.
I sure would hate for a huge stash to go to the crusher.
Maybe a few shipping container????

I mean, big barn, parts junkie here.
