East coast party and 914 parts sell-off. August 4th.

In 2015, we lost a good friend and 914 enthusiast, Jim McLeod. Jim had amassed a very large collection of 914 parts, a couple 914’s and a 914-6 conversion project. Most of these parts are in great shape, sorted, and ready to use. Barbara, Jim’s wife, would like these cars and parts to go out to Jim’s friends and all the 914 enthusiasts that shared his passion for these cars.

We are having a party and parts sale on August 4th. We intend to sell all the parts and would also like to sell the orange auto- x car and the white 914-6 conversion project. Think of the party as a big 914 swap meet with free food and all the parts priced to sell. Everyone is welcome, families, friends, and enthusiasts. We will be pricing parts to sell and will be negotiable on everything. You are welcome to come in your 914 but I’d suggest showing up in a car or truck that can hold a good size parts purchase. Example: we have 2.0 heat exchangers, 2 rebuilt transmissions, engine cases, p&c’s, mufflers, headers, wheels, upholstery, boxes and boxes of new parts still in their packages, bins of small hardware and unique parts and tons of used and refurbished parts. I’m including some pictures that show a fraction of the parts available.

This will be a great way to pick up parts for your project, spare parts for your car or get the second 914 that you know you want. We will have free matchbox hot wheels cars for the kids and free giveaways, good friends, food and the chance to talk 914’s with fellow enthusiasts.

Location - Glen Ave SW, Vienna, VA 22180 - plenty of parking is available.

Please call or email me with any questions. RSVP is not needed but if you can come, please post on this thread so we keep it bumped to the top. Thank you, Mark Epstein 302,540.9242, Mark@MarkEpstein.net

*I am not charging a fee. 100% of the proceeds go to Barbara.

GLWS, Jim was a good man. Hopefully you'll get Top Dollar! Were all those items shipped to the east coast to sale? Seems an added expense, if so. Will this be locals only or an online auction that runs concurrently?

Do what I do when we go to Hershey.

Take the parts to the nearest Office depot. Give them your address and have them pack and ship the parts. They will arrive a few days after you get home.

The party and sale is at Barbara McLeod’s house in Vienna, VA. It’s a one day event. There isn’t an online sale at this time. Getting top dollar isn’t as important as getting it all sold and into the hands of 914 enthusiasts, while remembering that we want Barbara to benefit from Jim’s 914 passion.

I'm planning on being there, Mark.

The six engine in that one pic Jim bought from Tangerine just around the time of his heart surgery. My son and I helped him move it across his yard and into his garage so he could work on it in there, just before he passed (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) .

Barbara told me he had a video of it running before he tore it down. So while it’s not a running engine, it’s not junk. I’ll touch base with Chris to see if he has details. We would like to sell the six parts with the conversion car but that’s not set in stone. Thanks!

I’ll make sure I can be there. First 914 I looked at, with my dad, to buy was one of Jim’s...passed on the car but remained friends. He was always willing to lend a tool and BS.

Yeah. Jim was a great guy. Back when I was event planning more he was always the first guy who offered to help. We would share spots at swap meets. He and Ken both would drive over to my place and help out.

When Ken died I tried to buy up as much of his stuff as I could to keep it in the family. I hope we can do the same with Jim’s stuff.

Planning on attending. Don’t have a need for parts but can lend a hand. Mark, give me a call if you need anything from me.

8 hrs away, but added it to my calendar. Mark, this really hits hard as I know if something happened to me, my wife would be in the same boat.

So thank you for doing this for her (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)


Now to save a wade of cash to bring and make the sale. Also may want to setup a PP Acount for the sale, yes the fees can become a pain, but in this situation, an up-charge to cover the fees would be appropriate. Fee calculators I use all the time, to make sure the seller does not pay for the my choice of transaction, and I still get the protection on the sale. Not that I have ever had issues buying things on the site. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer.gif) Some of my other interests can become a bit lets say not as honorable of a transaction.
