I missed the last one, so this will be my 914 adventure for the year. I need some warm weather to get the fuel tank and sway bar installation back on track. piratenanner.gif

Had a blast last year. Can't wait. If you golf bring your clubs, you can get 18 in on Saturday afternoon.

Betty and I will definitely be there.

Already have vacation scheduled for it.

Donna and I look forward to this event every year. This is always a well organized and very well run event. The German town and winding mountain roads are perfect our cars. In the evening, everything is within walking distance and the German food and beer are a great way to end the day.

Cant wait to see the new paint I can neither confirm of deny those allegations. All I can say is they do amazing things with photo shop.

We have a tremendous number of great vendors that support this event. I hope that getting to see their products on display at the event helps people make up their minds to buy an item or two.

However, many of us like to do the work on our cars ourselves so sometimes it might be a real learning experience to see the installation process on an actual car.
I am looking for ideas for installing certain items or parts provided by our supporters that could be done at the event and allow everyone to observe.

A few I came up with:
Replace Sail Vinyl
Clutch cable replacement of all pated from pedal to end of cable
CV joint replacement
New front or rear rotors
Shifting bushing replacement

Just looking for a few sound ideas that I could take to our supporters. I sure that a switch out of your engine for a Raby or 6 might be at the top of the list but kind of an impossible sell and difficult to do in a non-shop environment.

Give me some of your suggestions.

Let me know at Route 66 if you plan to drive Tail of the Dragon (about 100 miles north of Helen). I'll bring a map I have of the area showing other nice driving roads in that area, some nicer and less crowded than the Dragon.

OK.. I am going to bump this thread because I have to tell y'all about the dream I just had. I have been pushing really hard on my car to get it up and running for the trip, so maybe that affected the dream.

Betty and I were at the hotel in Helen, GA trying to pack the cars to come home from Okteenerfest, but we are encountering a bit of resistance. Bob Saville and Bill Dunster are dressed in Pink Tutus, including pink tights. Above the waist they are dressed in smoking jackets which are smoking more than the cigars in their mouths. They are throwing already cooked steaks (medium rare) at us. Nadine is in a black full formal floor length dress, including the elbow length black gloves, yelling at them to get out of the way.


OK. I agree. I have WEIRD dreams. But it is about 914s and Okteenerfest so I had to share it.

I can recommend a good therapist because even in a dream you cant un-see that!

Stephen, calling you a world class artist doesn't do you or your work justice.

In your latest tour de force, your depiction of Bob and Bill speaks of your ability to convey feeling through gesture and expression, a la Rembrandt. The gentle, ethereal smoke wafting from their 'smoking' jackets demonstrates your supreme mastery of the depiction of light, only hinted at in works by J. M. W. Turner or Delacroix. The... whatever it is... peeking out... immediately calls to mind the surrealism of Dali or even the palette of Van Gogh (during his 'Pink' phase of course). And those floating steaks - they just revel in the thought provoking artistry of Magritte. Finally; there is your piece de resistance - the pink tutu gracing Bill's form. It just shouts of Toulouse-Latrec's wondrous ballet themed masterpieces.

I bow to your artistry. I salute your mastery of the artsy-fartsy stuff. You Sir - are an Artistic God Among Men!

I was thinking the floating steaks were more Dali-esque and the whatever peeking out was more of a Ron Jeremy influence during his pink phase.... in theory anyway... blink.gif

That's because payment is via check.
You should have received a confirmation email with payment info.
Check your junk/spam folder if you don't see it in your inbox.

Bob is willing to take Paypal payments but you will need to add 3% to cover the fees.
