I think it important that someone do this that ha NO commercial interest, even though people like Dave have a lifelong love for the 914

How about the Dr. himself. He knows these cars (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)


But he's got a whole 914Club to run. How would he ever find the time?



I think anyone with a commercial interest who doesn't think they could be an impartial moderator would disqualify themselves.

I would do it although Jeff Bowlsby would be a much better person to do it, along with TomT. These guys are both tremendous resources that could each do a lot to take our cars into the twilight of their years.

What does an admin do? Jump in a post a lot of stuff? I can do that....

Also, it's probably better to put your Mac Sports Folding Wagon condition and quality wishes for Pat at his original post which Andy linked above, & here again below:

Agree that there are some really good names mentioned here (Garold, Jeff B, Tom) Far far more knowledge and experience with these cars than most of us. I'm not fully sure what is required of the role but if there is an opportunity to help with the admin (while one or two of the guru's cover the knowledge part) I'd be willing to share some of the admin piece. I have a passion for originality and would love to see the forum grow.

Sheee...oot! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

I was just looking for who got appointed, not pandering for nominations folks!

It was started 8 months ago, & I'd have thought that somebody would been appointed by the in-crowd by now!

I just had a couple of suggestions for additional O&H topics which should probably be nailed threads based on recurring questions from the membership.

Thanx for the votes of confidence guys, but be careful or I may nominate you! LOL (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

This weekend I'm busy playing with our "new to us" camping trailer - the "Lil' Pucker" - so we'll be ready for her 1st vintage trailers camp-out with us next weekend! I had the Westy gone thru & a few things checked & done by my guy Hans, so hopefully all will go well, if slooowly with the 4 squirrels in the engine bay working extra hard towing that 700 lbs of trailer plus all of our gear & us in the Westy!

It just followed us home a couple of weekends ago looking for a good home & caretakers!
Some lady appears to be hanging her head out the back window though! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)

Attached Image
.... yet another thing to research & get up to speed on!

Brad Mayeur knows the cars inside and out. Runs a repair/restoration business and sells his longs kit, but I'm sure could be an impartial judge for the thread. Nobody has the thread-starting talent of Pat, though.

BTW, did he ever sell Fritz??
