Holy Crap! The last one I saw in a yard in MN was at French Lake, completely covered by 20 years of brush grown over it.
Anything good left?

Any chance of getting the PORSCHE lettering from the engine cover and 914 1.8 badges from the rear if present?

Happy to make payment for your trouble and cover all costs and post

I think I'm free on Saturday and would like to look at them. They don't look that bad from the pics, I've seen much worse that have been saved.

Salty winter roads aren't kind to cars in Minnesota, but given the hole-free rocker panels, those don't appear to have been driven much during the winter.

Just got back fro the yard - they are closed on Saturdays and Sundays. Bummer.
The cars were out front, so I could take a look.
Worth Saving: rear targa trim piece x2, gold letters x2, maybe 1 set of tail light housings, maybe brake calipers, maybe warm air valves, not sure what else as I couldn't get in or under. Not sure if I will be able to make it out during work hours, but I'll try.

I would have a set of the letters if you were to sell
Any 914 1.8 badges?

Just for the record those two are from Colorado. They arrived 6 years ago and set out behind a warehouse until they lost the storage space.
