Watch out guys, Darren is a detail maniac, he'll be all over your cars!

Show him half as warm a welcome as you've been showing me, and he may teach you some more English vocabulary ;-)

It would be a blast to drive down from up here in Canada to meet another 914-shriven English bloke, but alas, too much on at the mo!
Don't worry Darren, these blokes make you really welcome! Have a good trip!

Hi Darren,
So glad to hear that you will be coming to southern California. Paul and I would love to meet you so we are presently planning to pop up from the San Diego area Saturday morning. I've looked at some of your posts and I am very impressed with what you have done with your 914.

Unfortunately, we won't be coming up in our 1970 914-6 as it is needing some work. So we cleared it with Oscar that it's ok to stop by......we'll hide our "non Porsche" away from view.

(We don't know where and time frame the gang of 914s will be Saturday so if someone could confirm that would be great as we may go and check out the events on our way up.)

BTW, We've been in your part of the world, Chichester, in the mid 80's and 2015, visiting my past room mate who is married to a lovely man from Chichester. We stayed in their little cottage outside of Chichester and could hear the cars racing at Goodwood! Love your area! We may get over there again in the next couple of years.

See you on Saturday! (Sorry we didn't get to meet James while he was here.)

Wait a minute, those other beautiful Porsche’s in your signature line and you’re driving up in a non-P car? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) maybe we get a couple of Turbo Carreras together sometime (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

Anyway, I wish I could meet up with the group too, I surely could use a cheerful crowd of like minded enthusiasts right now!

Would love to drive them soon, both are on non-op status presently and the GTR is strictly a race car. Sure would be cool to get a couple of Turbo Carreras together sometime....

Have a nice weekend.....

Ok, Darren landed safely. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Tomorrow morning he and his friend are starting off at Cars & Coffee at Crystal Cove around 7am before heading to my house. Just in case someone wants to meet up with them and possibly convoy to my house. They will be in a 356.

This is our project for tomorrow.

Finally Jeffrey’s engine run for the 1st time after months of restoration.
Good too see lots of 914 guys and with UK guest Darren who helped Andy to figure out the issue. Wow Jeffrey has an import mechanic who is just visiting SoCal for the 1st time but was able to helped since morning till afternoon.

Nice seeing Larmo, Jerry, Keith, Margie and Paul, Ed, Andy, Darren and offcouse Oscar (our host again to used his shop).

Hey Ed, pm me your phone number so we can exchange phone number and you can try sending me the video Jeffrey’s engine running so I can add a youtube link here.

Hi Darren, can you share the website of the various projects who have done. Can’t find it or maybe I didn’t get the right site name.

Thanks for being so nice and helpful also even with just a week vacation here in SoCal you still managed to hang out with us the whole day.
