Pulled the car out of the garage to dust it off and run the engine for awhile. Sure sign of Spring just around the corner a fly.

What a beauty. Is that a one-off front spoiler?

Love the side euro lights.

You're in St Boni? I lived there for a few years in the early 2000s.

I was thinking about your car the other day. Somebody on the bird site posted a Craigslist ad near me of a guy selling a 77 turbo engine. I reached out and started fantasizing about that engine in my 914... guy never called back, I’m sure he got bombarded with lowball offers like mine...lol

Bet you never thought you'd be so glad to see a fly.

That's not a fly that's the state bird

So not looking forward to it. I guess it's the one time that I'm happy to not have a 914, otherwise I'd be itching to get out and drive.

My poor paver driveway has been destroyed by the road salt over the years, i never sealed it. i have alot of pavers to replace, most of the really bad areas are where the cars were always parked.

I might have to consider orange or a red on my car..

Enjoy the snow this weekend everyone.

Welcome back!
All this white crap is coming down because Chappy had the nerve to tempt mother nature by rolling the turbo into the driveway. Putting your snow blower away before the first lawn mowing will cause the same thing.

The snowbank that was in the photo behind the car is now about 7 ft. Tall. I cleared about 20 inches off the driveway today with more on the way. No golf no turbo car happening for awhile, just think of the dirty trick mother nature played on that fly.

Today was cold here in North Texas. The low was 48, and the high was 67. We had a hell of a wind the last few days too. Spent the last two days cleaning out the garage.

Ya I thought we were over it. The storm was supposed to stay south of us. Woke up today to another storm.
