I'm back in the 914 world after more than 35 years!

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

I am the lucky winner of The car known as the Screamcicle and probably several other names.

It was originally built by Bill who frequented this forum.
Then bought by Paul who also was a 914 world member improved and refined this 550hp monster.

Unfortunate events left the front end damaged and in need of extensive repair.

Paul didn't want the car parted out, rather he wanted it to be purchased by someone who would bring it back to it's most recent glorious state.

Enter me... I had just sold my hit rod El Camino and finally the timing was right. Andrew sent me a note as he knew I was looking for a project. And a Hot rod 914 fit the profile. A lightweight classic car that could be autocrossed, track driven, and maybe a trip to taco Bell.

My previous 914 was a 1971 1.7 with Monza exhaust, Weber carbs, and Rivera wheels. This will be a big change. Fortunately I will have been buffered into the outlaw world by Andyrew's build over the last 15+ years. Quite excited to have Son/Father outlaw widebodys.

Many of you know that the car was on the east coast and I live on the west coast. It was picked up yesterday but the transportation company. Paul was a great help accommodateing the driver and reassuring that it would tranport just fine. I wish this company had tracking but at least this way I won't be watching it's every move as I wait the 7-10 days going coast to coast.

If you see a white 914 on a red auto transport truck. Please let me know!

I'll ad to this thread more later,. But here's a teaser picture.

That's great that you've got this monster in your hands now! And welcome back... Andrew and I talked a little over 3 years ago about our projects at the 2015 WCR. He's finished his while I went through some major setbacks but I'm still working on it. It'll be good to see your progress and will be a boost to my motivation as well. I'm looking forward to seeing these father/son Outlaws at the next WCR if that's what your goal is - She's in great hands! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

Clay,. Thanks,. That was one of my decision factors,. A lot of people saw it and liked it enough to give a people's award.

Bob, thanks, I will be posting updates.

MGP. Andrew and I will motivate each other as well. I definitely want to park / drive these side by side.

Rick,. I was reading the old posts and saw that. I d
Had and will have lots of time to do research.

Jeff. I think they are calling it a tribute car, but I'll get you the VIN anyways.


One more picture of what it looked like in it's prime then we'll get to the current situation.

Here's a pic of Paul at the Meadowlands in 2011 on the day we co-drove the car in an autocross, right after Hershey I think.
I made some changes to the suspension for Paul based on the experience.

Thanks guys .
Jamie and all, the plan is to go back with the Sheridan bodywork.
Andrew and I just spent some time taking measurements. I'll be able to see how far off the white one is compared to his orange one. Its far from exact but it will give me some idea.

To say I am excited is an understatement (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)


We have been strategizing this for a while now and have a decent plan of attack. I'll let Dad post on that but how he does the repair will be VERY interesting to watch. Unfortunately I wont be able to help much due to location...

This is going to be a VERY long couple weeks waiting for it to show up (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

Im already bench racing in my head... Loosing.... But still bench racing (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Chris,
Thanks for.the picture. I might try my had drifting

That day the car was way too loose, even for drifting.
He did a full 360, smoking the tires while trying to get the car going in the right direction again, after a spin on-course.

Sounds like the next Workshop Day should be at Dan's? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

Looking forward to watching. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help out.
