Yesterday morning Betty and I took her 74 orange 914, and my 73 red 914-6 to a PCA Cars and Coffee and car show at Northpark mall in Dallas. We had over 250 Porsches there.

After that, we went on a Toy run with the club, ending at the Police station in Plano, Texas. There were over 500 items donated by Maverick Region PCA.

Next was lunch at a Distillery with @Scottthephotog , his wife, and some friends of theirs that own a new 911, but they really, really want a 914.

Later that evening, we took my red car and the blue original six to the Maverick Region holiday party at Grapevine Porsche. I had been asked by the social chair to gather together about 10 914s to display at the party because Maverick region PCA was showcasing the introduction of the 914. The cars ran the whole spectrum of 914s, including 2 factory sixes, and all the way from an original 73 with steel wheels, hubcaps and a luggage rack to my wild six conversion and a four cylinder race car. We took the 70 blue factory six, and the red 73 six conversion.

At the party, I found out that my red 914-6 six conversion won best in show at the Cars and Coffee! I was outside and Betty went up and got it for me. I was surprised when she came up and handed it to me.

And this was on the dash of a 356 in the Dealer Showroom. I sooooo want one of these.

It was a great event, and everyone loved the 914s in the show. The only real downside was when Jack Griffin tried to roll up the passenger window on his factory six, it shattered. There was glass between his car and our factory six.

If anyone has an early passenger window for sale, let me know. I will pass it along to Jack. BTW.. Jack Griffin sold his 911 RSR and kept his 914-6. He also drove at LeMans one year.

Jack Griffin story.

Definitely a super fun day. Thanks to Clay, I was able to get my car up and running in time for the event. It was super cool to see the line of 914s both at Nordstrom in the morning, and later that evening at the banquet. They had 914 cookies at the banquet that were super cool.

My wife is quite good at wrapping presents and came up with the idea of putting them on the luggage rack.

I'm with you. Great bumper sticker that just about sums it up. Everything available on-line with a simple Google search.

Yea, I live here in Dallas and had no idea about this get together (need to join PCA).. have no running Porsche yet either but would have loved to stop by w/my son just to see Porsche's in mass, which is always cool. .. How in the world did the group manage so much parking at NorthPark Center Mall, especially at this time of year !! I can't get parking there ever! Cool pics btw.

The parking was pre-arranged by Maverick Region with Nordstroms. They opened their doors early so we could get to the Nordstrom coffee bar and the restrooms.

You can see all the events at http://mav.pca.org. It doesn't take membership to come to cars and coffee, just show up!

Sweet event! My uncle is looking at an orange 914 which is probably a '74. Can't wait to start working on that car and enjoy meet ups and car show like that.

There is an event called "Motoring Mavs at Mayos" that happens every month on a Saturday. This month it is on the 21st. Even if you don't have a running 914, show up. We can sit and talk 914s all morning.

It's at Mayo Performance. 1521 Baccarac Court, Euless, TX. 76040.
