Congrats on the job... you are really working hard... nice to see.

Can't wait for the progress to continue.

I love the 914, but I am sorry, it pales in comparison to your architectural design. Keep that part up, the car has a limited focus, but some of these spaces are just incredible!!!!! aktion035.gif pray.gif wub.gif

Site blocked at my work, I'll check at home.

My wife is in the interior architecture/design field, so your work hours are something I understand. Sometimes I have to give her quick updates on what's going on in the world/news.

Good to have an update from you!

Congrats on school and the job...so glad you are going to start working on the 914 again!

Wasn't there talk of the next WCR being up North in the Seattle area?

Hey Everybody,

I just wanted to check in and see how everybody is doing. Finally the end of the Anklebiter's long hiatus is drawing to a close. I just started my last semester at UPenn, which means this summer will see my joyful return to the garage! piratenanner.gif piratenanner.gif piratenanner.gif

I look forward to becoming more active on the forum soon, I have been so busy over the last 3 years the internet has become a luxury, to see the work that has been keeping me from you check out DaneStokes.com


My father was a Seattle architect. Good luck and may you finish many projects. Especially in the Porsche variety. You have to have something besides fame and fortune.

Well, 3 years has come and gone, I graduated with a Masters degree in Architecture from Penn in May:

Just a reminder dude, you cut your car in half! slap.gif lol-2.gif

Congratulations Dana! New baby! New sheepskin! New job! That's the trifecta. Looking forward to seeing you in the NW. Do you know where you'll be living yet?

BTW, if you need some storage space I can always move Greenie's 911 outside to make room for the Anklebiter.

I'm still new around here (though I've technically been a member for a while), but can we even call this a 914 anymore? It looks about 15% 914 and the rest is completely custom and Subie powered. Just a thought and maybe it came up in one of the other 53 pages that I haven't gone through completely, lol. Very interesting build, that's for sure!

Congratulations Dane,
I spent an evening reading the entire thread waiting to see what was next. I am glad to see you are back because there is nothing worse than a novel without an ending. You have an awesome imagination and some mad skillz. I am sure with your drive and ambition your project's completion and a very successful life are inevitable. Congratulations again and get back to work!!

If it walks like a Duck and quacks like a Duck then yes, we can call it a 914.

If it has more than a quarter million views on a 914 site it might be a 914 biggrin.gif

I'f I'm remembering right this is the ORIGINAL Renegade Subaru car. The one in many of the videos. Orange with polished Fuchs. He then made a few "tasteful mods". It's gonna be awesome when done.

Reminds me of an embryonic sac...just visible enough to make something out, but not enough detail to know what it might become...

I just found this thread. I spent some time reading 'diagonally' through a few - in fact a lot- pages, looking at the pics. And every pic amazes me more! What a fantastic job you're tackling. I think I can safely say that I'm quite handy with most tools, but this... You are lightyears ahead of me!

I will start to follow this with a lot of interest!

They don't call it "Big Sky Country" for nothing! My cocktail of plastic wrap, duct tape, and tie down straps seems to be holding so far!
Getting a lot of attention on the road and lots of questions at gas stations, makes me excited to get this thing on the road under its own power!

Congrats on your graduation. Good luck with future endeavors.

Can't wait to see this project move forward. That's one bad-ass vehicle.

IT IS BACK!!!!! Now, I have to re-read the entire file to get caught up again on this build. Us older people take longer and longer to get through reading these threads and understanding what is going on. DO NOT LEAVE US HANGING AGAIN WITHOUT FINISHING THIS PROJECT!!!! LOL!!

Congratulations of finishing school and getting back to the project. I have missed this thread and the building of your dream car. The project is one of the more interesting items on the board and will be back following it with extreme interest.

Welcome back!

Now that all the greetings are out of the way; GET BACK TO WORK AND KEEP US ENTERTAINED AND INFORMED! Again, LOL/LOL/LOL/ETC.

"11 days later we welcomed our first child into the world" That would be Anklebiter II!

Excellent, I couldn't picture you in those sterile suburbs on the hill. How's your shop?
wingnut86

Geez Dane, you could have used "wreck wrap" in blue beer.gif

you know, you should really print out some cheap Gucci-flage and hide certain aspects of the car as you drive - all of us here could sign a non-dosclosure and giggle like crazy when the car mags start their coverage aktion035.gif

Welcome back Dane. Your car is the cover pic on the Facebook 914 Outlaw group. Looking forward to progress!

I'm really loving the shape of this "wrap" job of yours. I think you need to build a second set of aluminum or glass front and rear body clips similar to this that you could change out depending on how bad ass you feel! idea.gif

Exactly, give me a 100 year old house over a new one any day! The shop isn't huge, like a one and a half car. Luckily the huge chassis fabrication projects are behind me, mostly going to focus on getting the chassis running and driving next so space shouldn't be an issue. The shop is super old, with good character, just need to hang a bunch of crap on the walls and it should be perfect!
