Thought I'd take a moment to introduce @TINKERGINEERING

She reached out to us and with the help of her dad they are doing an electric 914.
There's a whole story they are documenting, but thought I'd encourage them to post up a little of what they are doing.

Subscribed, definitely.
This kid has loads of personality. She won me over the first time she pronounced Porsche. Her Mom and/or Dad definitely know their way around video editing. Thoroughly enjoyed the clip.

She is a very smart, talented little girl with so much personality. I think she is going to do well in whatever she wants to do. Very cute video. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

So, she is like 11 yrs old...
Looks like something this board can get behind and support.
Be interesting to watch her progress over the next few years.

There was another thread about taking a teener on a first date. Can you just imagine her in high school driving this car? With her personality, she will have guys lined up around the block asking for a date.

Yes spent about a hour on the phone after they reached out to us. After listening to her lay out what they were doing and needed we had to help. Got them hooked up with EV West and will be helping on an ongoing basis. I had encouraged them to join here and post up some progress to help keep everything moving forward and have access to the "brain trust"

So amazing and enjoyable! My favorite watch now that "Mystery of Oak Island" is off-season. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I hope she caught the Vintage Voltage episode. That electric A/C system is intriguing. Wondering if it also would work with a gas powered 914?

@Mrholland2 the answer is yes, though the kit so far has been built for 911s. He is working on a 914 kit, as that is his car they where using for the build in the show.

She nailed the first skill you need for a 914, steering it on the trailer.

The Force is strong with this young Padawan.
Someone in the family has some nice video equipment and there is definitely some marketing savvy here.

Thank you all, especially Mark, for all your support! We are still learning how the forum works. I will have so many questions for you all. ( Should I start a new thread to introduce myself, or should it live here?)


Hello 914 World!
We are new here. It is clear that this is the best space for information on 914 projects. I was so excited to learn that this forum exists.
I am Frances. I run a YouTube channel called TINKERGINEERING
Tinkergineering is all about my journey in tinkering. Joy is what this gives me. Learning to share this joy has become my purpose. For my next project, I want to solve just a minor issue for myself. On September 16th. 2024, I will turn 16. This Winter I bought my first car, a 1976 Porsche 914 with the money I earned from picking the grapefruit tree at my house.This is my favorite car of all time and I will be converting it to electric! My main goal is to show other eleven-year-old girls how to take action in what they believe in. From bumpers to batteries I got my work cut out for me.
Who knows, maybe there is another kid out there who could gain inspiration for their dreams from this project. That is my purpose, to pay it forward.

I’m Frances.
I'm 11 years old.
Together my dad and I write and read these posts.
You can track my Tinkergineering progress on Youtube and Instagram.
The first episode of this journey is here:
