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.

What is your take on how to redo your car?

Transplant all the goodies in a new body or get a body shop to rework the body on this one?

Or are you a guy with mad skill sets like we have seen here?

Thanks for the offer.
It's not likely that I would loose interest in my dream car. I've wanted one since Hot Rod Magazine did an article on Rod Simpsons red V8.

Yes I'll have earn it, so to speak, but all the better to earn a piece of it. This will make it back on the road.

You're pretty close to me relatively speaking. I'm in Eagle Point.

Yep pretty much. I need to get my hands on it to put a plan together. I'm toying with a couple options. I'll post more pictures next week.

I remember standing next to this car when it was on a chassis dyno up the street from my shop right after a camshaft change (to de-tune it slightly) and new crank/rod bearings.
I watched the 180mph speedo get buried with the left rear wheel no more than 2 feet from my right leg.

That's crazy. Do you remember any numbers?

I've been trying to figure out which cam is in it.
It looks like a combination of 2 profiles.

Here's a teaser of the current condition. Yes Paul is ok. Probably a bit heartbroken I know I was when I did similar work to my BMW.
The 914 sustained front end damage. But fortunately the really important stuff is fine. Even the radiator looks ok.

I'll post more when it's in my hands. Keep a look out for a red truck car carrier doing the cross country bit. Let me know if you see it!

I want to say 425 at the wheels but that's not a certain memory. I don't think I have the dyno graph in my records.
The cam was ground for 1.8 ratio lifters IIRC, which were supplied with the camshaft. I don't remember the cam mfr & p/n but it was more conservative than the one Bill built the engine with.
