What about Sean that had a shop in La Mesa a few years back? He had a few 914's sitting around his shop. His screen name was sean_v8_914 Send him a msg or email. He hasn't been active here since July 2018 so an email might be a better choice. Good luck kid. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

No time for a poem right now, but I would like to share the photos of something that I made around the same time I had the car. A cardboard body of a 914 built to fit my old 1/10 scale RC truck!

A mixture of cardboard and stucco tape creates a rustproof 914!

You could try carfax.com or one of the other VIN look up tools. It might show if the car was totaled or if he took it to a shop for repairs. Otherwise do you have a friend at the DMV or a cop? They could find the last owner.

Carfax won't work on this style of VIN, unless they've changed the way they work in the last few years.

If you can't find the VIN listed here, and a Google search doesn't turn it up (unlikely), you may be at the end of the road.

Have you tried contacting George Hussey at Auto Atlanta?
If the owner ever bought parts there, good chance the info will be in their database.
