I am considering purchasing this project car. I am mostly concerned that rust may have been covered rather than fixed. Does anyone have knowledge of this car or any advice on what exactly to look for when I go and personally look the car over?
Thanks,
Jon

it has just been cheaply and poorly repaired, the fact that it has been converted to a v 8 or something makes everyone want to stay away as those cars are most usually cobbled together and are worthless and do not handle worth a damn. I would stay away unless you want to take on someone else's castoff and start to pour good money into it only to turn into bad

Thanks for the advice. My first Porsche was a 993. I loved the car, but I did not like how the ass end would get light if you got off the throttle at the apex of a corner. This time around I want a mid engine Porsche. I want to be able to drive it to the track a few times a year for drivers education. Maybe I should be looking for a cayman?
Thanks,
Jon

I certainly would, 914s are just too old and a nice one would be the cost of a good cayman. People buy 914s these days to collect not REALLY drive anymore (what price nostalgia)

Most any car will start oversteering it the driver gets off the throttle. In the next-to-last turn I did it every hard lap in the Skip Barber 3-day course driving Clossle 32Fs.
