Hi Guy's,

I'm visiting L.A from UK on July 13th-19th. This will be my first time on the West Coast.
Are there any meets taking place that week where I could meet some fellow Fourteeners?
Or any general recommends of car stuff to see & do?

Kindest Regards
Darren C

Thanks in advance

Where on the west coast will you be? There are some cars and coffee meets usually happening on Saturdays.

I'm near Huntington Beach.

Can't commit to an outing however feel free to swing by my place. I'm always working on my 914's.

Maybe lunch (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chowtime.gif)

There are quite a few of us in that immediate area.

Marconi Auto Museum is worth a visit.

Multiple cars and coffee events that weekend

Not sure about any broader Porsche events.

Some neat Porsche / classic shops to visit in Costa Mesa.

If a day trip to LA is in scope that opens up a lot too.

Darren

As you see, loads of options when come out for your SoCal visit on the 13th.
I'd enjoy meeting up with you.
There should be at least 3 other members at my house that day and more than eight 914's. Some 4 cyl, some 6 cyl and a few V8's. Both narrow and wide bodies.

I'd love to hear more about your restored blue 914.

Come on over.

Oscar

Thanks for kind offers, it'll be a privilege to meet you guys!

My Alaska Blue 2.0L has been a whole load of fun since importing from Desert Hot Springs to UK & finishing the restoration (in Build-off Challenge a couple of years back) I've been to many shows over here in UK & we've got a BIG 14 meet a couple of days after I'm back in UK to mark 50 years of the 914 at Brooklands, the worlds oldest & first racetrack. Hoping to get most of the UK 14's & a few over from France/Germany to make it a great day.

Beforehand though, it's all systems go for a meet in CA next weekend/week after.

Kindest regards
Darren

Was your car written up in one of the UK classic car magazines a couple years ago that did a feature on 914’s by chance? Classics and Sports Cars maybe?

Watch out for Oscar. He will make you drive one of his beautiful 914s.

Ask James how we treat you Brits when you visit!

Good to see you back on the World. Too bad I'm on the wrong side of the country to be part of this meet-up.

Who from the Bay Area wants to drive down there to meet Darren? I don't think the wife will let me drive that far by myself.

Hi Darren, so glad to see you posting again!

Thanks for the bump Mike, not really been away ;-) I have been checking in regularly to see what you guy's have been up to! Was really waiting until I knew if my trip was going to happen before posting anything. It's been a long time coming.

Watch out guys, Darren is a detail maniac, he'll be all over your cars!

Show him half as warm a welcome as you've been showing me, and he may teach you some more English vocabulary ;-)
