Now tell him to buy you some new tires...

Congratulation Eric! Thanks also for making the 914 on a higher level and for mentioning 914world too!

Jay did seem to enjoy it.
On some of his episodes you can tell he's working too much behind the wheel to carry on much of a dialog. Not here. Seemed like he was really ripping it up on the road.

Very good press for us! I totally forgot about that 10k rpm tach, I'll start working on it. smash.gif

Well done, the you tube comments was a interesting love it or hate it read.

Very cool, congrats Eric. first.gif aktion035.gif

Congrats....

I could actually see a slight increase in the popularity of our 914s more with Jay Leno's drive of Erics car than with Magnus buying and modifying a few 914s himself.


Got this cranked up in the garage running thru my 3 foot tall stereo speakers for the neighbors to enjoy as well.

Anyone know the significance of the 2 red strips near the gas cap?

Thanks Gang,

I simply couldn't have done it without 914World and the support here.

A special shout out and thanks to Jaime Mejia (Oldschool) for all of his work as he tirelessly pushed the 914 to the crew behind the scenes. This never would have happened without him.

Again, thank you to everyone here for all your support and comments that helped us grow.

The 914 is here to stay...

Shows the pit crew the engagement angle when putting the cap back on. Something I stole from looking at all of the various GT pictures on Armando's site (another invaluable resource for us all).

really well done Eric. Great spot and a great car. So glad this is the one Leno got to see. No excuses needed for any thing about it and presented tastefully and with a great attitude!! Way to represent. Sweet !!!!
pete000
Best car on Leno !

Watch the prices soar now !

1971 914 1.7 needs TLC not running, has some rust. $42500.00
chandler1969
My goodness, what a great car!! I could watch that video over and over. Superb job eric! It's also amazing how small these cars are compared to whats on the road these days....
sbsix
My favorite Leno so far.
sfrenck
What's the episode number so I can look for it on TV and/or when will it be on TV?
cuddyk
Is it just me...or does Jay seem like a comedian with cars who needs to get coffee?smile.gif

Thoroughly enjoyed! Congratulations!

Interesting how monotone Jay is before he got in the car and then all of a sudden he got all bubbly.
HaraPuzo

I was a fan of the show before I worked on it. But seeing and being around all the cool cars,I knew our 914 needed to be recognize on his show.
Thanks to Hans for coming in and Eric for bringing his 914 out for the show...
here is my cameo...look to right I'am with this hot chick.

Dumb question, but is the car a '74 or a '70? Eric, you say it's a '70 tub, but Jay introduced the car as a '74"

Inquiring minds want to know?

No, he said "... if this was a '70 ... "

It certainly looked like Jay was enjoying his drive. He’s always seemed like an honest enthusiast that enjoys all things mechanical and appreciates the efforts it took Eric to assemble this car.
Justinp71

That was Awesome! Great example of a 914-6 too!
Cairo94507
That was way cool. I really enjoyed seeing that. Our 914 stock just went up by 20 points. I would love to see Jay Leno build a 914-6. Eric's car is very cool I saw it before it was finished, but it was pretty close to being done. He did a terrific job and we are fortunate he is a part of our community. Jay is right, if you have a 914 question, not even brake related, Eric is an excellent source of information.

Cheers. beerchug.gif smilie_pokal.gif

Do you get any swag for being on the show?
jim_hoyland
Fantastic ! Best review ever
rdauenhauer
first.gif Awesome.
Good Job Jamie , Eric aktion035.gif
So envious!
I noticed at the very end Jays comment "I gotta get me one" smile.gif
Erc did Jays wardrobe people veto the salmon shirt? biggrin.gif
Unpretentious
Way Cool!

Yeah, that almost got lost in the fade away at the end. Look for a new member here soon named "Jay"...

Did anyone notice Leno cringe when Eric suggested that some people have installed chevy V-8's in a 914? av-943.gif Nice job Eric. Did Jay offer to buy your car? biggrin.gif

Funny how even after all this time guys either love them or hate them....very little middle ground.

Some guys have class and some don't. I think we know which is which. biggrin.gif

Nice film. Very well produced and a clear exhibition of Eric's talent and commitment to the marque.

Not to say screw the 911 snobs but I have owned outright most every p-car available from 62 notchback to current day C4S and everything in between. Not a a dealer but a broke enthusiast with a hankering for stinkin squareweave underfoot or a smokin hot interior in a 74 Targa...... literally..

For me.......... The 914 is the new norm.

No heater.

No radio.

No defrost.

Just a simple car with a hand throttle to warm it up / and a screaming engine right behind your brain just to the right center. My Fuely ap shows a reasonable 17 MPG on a 3.0 ^ on Weber 40's. ... for the money, one cannot do any better.

Tomorrows drive is to a place called Queen Valley off the 101 and 60 east. This place may sound questionable to Larmo and others in SoCal - but out here / open land and open roads.

In open land AZ, it is an flat straight road that goes on for ever and has at its end, a legal open shooting range where a man can set up an electric flinger for clays and a picnic. Photos to follow.

Sidebar: Still testing the wierd failure of the MSD ignition. So I will drive further and further out until AAA comes to save me again......... so far perfect...

past pickups to follow..

Oh yea, at least for me the next video that pops up is another Jay Leno's Garage featuring a pair of nice early 911's from a shop called LA Workshop 5001.

A quick google search mentions that these are $400,000 builds! screwy.gif

At about 7:30 he does say it was a '70 tub.

The way i heard it, as they were discussing details, he said:

"We made this ourselves. If this was a '70 tub ... I didn't go too crazy, you can find all those parts but it was just one of those things, you know ... with a '74 car ..."
