I saw this and was speechless. The amount of time and effort spent to do this must have been enormous. I just can't figure out why? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/icon8.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/WTF.gif) seems like it would have been easier to get a Fiero or a Europa instead of going through all that trouble.

@Chi-town

This coming from the guy that builds Porscharu's. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

Now before you get mad, I'm just kidding . . . . I'm a live and let live guy. But like you, that one is a real head scratcher. I at least sort of get the Subaru thing . . . well maybe not totally. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

But the fact that you've rescued an 914 from an EV conversion is more than enough to appreciate all that you do! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif)

Besides the motor I can’t really make out anything that is from a 914. No VIN listed.

Looks like it. Definitely not built on a 914 - you can see the center tunnel typical of a VW floorpan. As stated above, only part even remotely "914" is the engine.

From the seller when asked how vehicle is titled:
This is a custom built brand new car w/Porsche engine Ebay would not allow us to post with IL assigned vin so we used vin from motor

And then a followup:
This is a brand new custom built car inspected and titled by IL sec.of state has new IL clean title and licence VIN S0S314604IL can supply any and all info you need

I suggested he remove the info about it being a Porsche 914 since it is very misleading. The ad has remained unchanged. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

"A VIN is composed of 17 characters (digits and capital letters) that act as a unique identifier for the vehicle."

It doesn't help that the VIN starts with S-O-S.

I kind of like the Cyberness of my Kid's red clay 914...made in the '90s in the Boy Scouts; pottery & ceramic field trip. It's been fired in the kiln too (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)
