Good time for a good cause today! Thanks for pulling this together, Mark. I know it meant a lot to Barbara and the McLeod family.

Good to see everyone -- I'd mention everyone I can remember -- but then I'd forget somone. Special beer.gif to Oscar, however, for making the trip. Really good to meet you, and don't worry, I won't tell Larmo or Elliott what you said about them! happy11.gif

Still a lot of parts available. Man, Jim knew how to collect stuff.

What an amazing collection of parts! Thanks to Mark for organizing this event for Barbara. I'm happy to report my car is running again thanks to Jim. It was nice to meet everyone today.

Jim...RIP

Guess who?...some escaped prior to taking picture.

Gratitude goes out to Barbara, The Mcleod family and Mark for setting this event up.

It was a great day of buying parts, talking cars with 914 world members and the Mcleod family, awesome food and just hanging out. The sun even came out for a change!

It was a pleasure meeting Oscar from the west coast as well.

Jim - your parts collection will help keep other 914's on the road - thank you. beerchug.gif

It killed me that I wasn't able to travel for 45 minutes and meet everyone. I'm recovering from hip surgery on the 23rd and just couldn't do it.

Thank you to everybody be who came to the party.
Thank you to everyone who helped at the party.
Thank you to Adam at Unobtanium for a big contribution that everyone enjoyed.
Thank you to Barbra for her hospitality and sharing Jim with all of us.

Just wow. Stopped by for a bit.. Wasn't looking for anything much but wow.. if Jim had 1 of something, he had a dozen of them. Amazing number of parts/cars etc in that garage. I thought myself somewhat 914 knowledgeable, but when faced, even with labeled boxes/parts/drawers I wondered what some of the items were. No wonder his his family are overwhelmed.

Met some nice folks.. talked 914s and other stuff.. Not sure if there is an ability to do this again... in the back of my mind, it takes someone with a lot of time and patience to go through it all, figure whats working/fixable/broken etc to help keep other 914s on the road.

To the two fella's who seemed to spearhead the effort, thank you.

I thought about it on my drive home. My suggestion to Barbara would be to have Garold and Brad stop by before Hershey next year and pick up all the rest of the 914 parts. Then sell some Hershey and take the rest home. Even though a lot of good stuff was cherry picked, I noticed a lot of new parts from Raby to build an engine and Brad might buy the project car to finish it up. Having a lot of the parts that don’t always bring big money but are needed for repairs might be a good fit for Brad.


Before that is Ski Roundtop on Sept. 15th. If you bring a trailer load of stuff and price it right it will move, it's an all air-cooled show and buyers come ready to buy.

The show is in Lewisberry, PA, only two hours from Vienna.

It's my favorite swap because buyers come to buy and sellers come to sell, no ebay pricing BS, just people who want cash and guys who want parts. Also, you get a lot of old racers showing up at Roundtop, so you never know what will make an cameo.
