I am picking up my first 914 this morning. A ‘75 1.8.
I am driving it home from Colorado Springs to California over the next couple of days.
A little over 1200 miles. Should be a fun trip.

That's a good model. L Jet seems to be more reliable. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welcome.png)

Welcome to the club! You will never find a better group of people in my opinion.
Sounds like a long first drive - you've checked the car out thoroughly I hope?
Please post pics, as this gang will ride your A$$ until you post some.
Welcome!

I did LA to Michigan a few years ago, no hiccups. Best of luck! Also an L-jet but it sure didn't care for the mountains a whole lot...

Hello FisterD.......went to Boulder to school growing up in LA....made the trip at least 10 times to be honest....slept in the car (1970 914/6) often and I am 6'4". Construction on I-70 and I-15 was constant back then.....now a luxury drive. Motels are fun take your time. And absolutely positively take the top off!! The entire trip and the entire time you own the car. That's just me though. Have fun and drive safe and watch the temp gauge.
See you in SoCal.
