Just joined and was able to get my first 914- a roller 1975 2.0 in great shape with great start for restoring from the 914 World classifieds. Looking forward to the super knowledge that is shared so generously on this forum. I am located just north of Dallas TX so any folks nearby please don't hesitate to reach out! Really beneficial to get linked in locally as well cause I will surely need the help!

1975 with a bumper backdate? Or does your VIN start with 474?

Hurst / Colleyville border here. There's a lot of 914's in the area, a ton of parts (mostly up in our attic, just ask scottthephotog (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) ), and a wealth of knowledge locally.

This coming Saturday (12/05/2020) there is an all Porsche Mavs & Mochas (Cars & Coffee) starting at 8:30 a.m. at Nordstrom, NorthPark Center. Just google "maverick pca" and you'll find the local Porsche Club's website with the details.

Clay and I will have his monster 6 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) and our original 6 there (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving-girl.gif) . I'm betting some other 914's will show up. Even if you don't have a P car to drive, it'd be great to meet you, look at cars and talk 914's?! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cheer.gif)

Looks like a clean car to start with. Is that a spare transmission? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welcome.png)

I'm down in Oak Cliff (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ar15.gif) so I'm sure we'll link up at some point for a drive, don't have a running 914 YET but I'm willing to come out and help if you need any help on a project. Tell us about the car and your plans with it... is that a GT front bumper? Looks like an oil cooler opening.

Welcome to 914World! A great place to learn and meet other 914 people. When you are all sorted out and ready to go for a run, come on up to Moncton, Canada, first beer is on me!
