Hello everyone my name is Jerry also known to some as (newbie hoser scammer ) I recently within the past few days purchased our first 914 . I immediately fell in love with the car at first sight along with my two sons age 9 and 18. I was very nervous about purchasing a car that I knew nothing about, with that said the car arrived today and I had already prepared myself for disappointment because in the past every time I bought a project car it turns out to be way worse than I thought. I'm pleased to say this car did not disappoint me. I immediately started looking the car over expecting to find rotted floors and rockers , quarters or something. I pulled the trunk carpets out and no visible rust. I poked around with a screw driver and nothing. I scraped under coating off in the wheel well and corners thinking I'll definitely find rust there but nothing. I haven't pulled the rocker covers off yet so there is still a chance. The only place with rust was below the battery which didn't even look that bad, the dreaded hell hole was the only spot I could find so far and didn't look as bad as I thought.
