i don't think we need it, but we'll see. if it works out, we'll have a one stop place to get the latest CW info, if not, we'll have a empty fair-ground ...

sounds like a win-win situation for the club ...

I already belong to another "purist" site on the internet, It's run by another east coaster!
This looks like an ambitious undertaking, Andy. I hope it doesn't keep you from your other duties on the club. ;)

I'll start...
"why should I be a 914 Purist"
Beacause
1. keeping the stock paint color is easier than painting the whole tub.
2. My girl friend likes the side marker lights.
3. I don't have any money for, Carbs, a 3.6 twin spark, a 911 suspension, or steel flares.
4. The more stock the car is, the sooner it'll be done.
5. My car didn't come with a plaid interior.
6. I only need one chrome washer nozzle, a chrome "2.0" and some aluminum pop rivets for parts bin to be complete.
7. The "stressed" look of a well broken-in interior is hard to duplicate with new parts.

Andy,

Just noticed this new site on 914-Club.

Hope it works out & I plan to contribute. Hope that guy from Blue Balls, PA joins in the fun.

Andy, thanks. I too hope that we can compile a lot of original information for this site. As I have 'restored' the cars that I've owned, I have been leaning more towards the orginality of the design. Yes, there are certain things that can/should be modified/improved for more enjoyment, but this forum will allow everyone to share their experience. I know that Steve Gaglione will/should be a serious contributor, once he finishes his 'assignment' in N.O.

As of this date, this forum is evolving - thankfully! It's primary purpose now is to promote and provide information available for preservation and/or restoration to original spec 914's (both). 914 discussion here is NOT intended to be solely for the CW (I REALLY hate that designation!).

If you have even a passing interest in, or have quetsions conceerning originality on 914 models, this is the place:

Original owner & want to impart your wisdom - your place!

Not the original owner, but want to be certain it's kept so - your place!

Restoring & have originality questions - your place!

Thinking about dipping your toe into the concours waters - your place!

Veteran of concours - your place!

Just an originality geek - your place!

Converting a four to a six - may be your place, if you want it to look "real"

Putting a "subie" or "chebbie" into your 914 - go to the Garage Forum (no slam to those who do, but this is NOT the place).

Flame on! You can always have the moderator fired. And, I WILL moderate at my discretion.

Hi Pat & concours guys.

I will not be around for the next few weeks. Have important things to take care of & will check in once in a while. I have lots to post, but other things take preference.

Tom
BTW: Important stuff is,
Very busy with work (Power & Utility Industry).
Baby sitting our daughters (2) boys for a week while our daughter & son-in-law visit Guatemala for an adoption of a little girl. Wife will need all my help for this first of two visits before they bring her (Megan) to the U.S.A later this year.

5. My car didn't come with a plaid interior.


I haven't had my low-mileage original '76 with the aforementioned orange/black plaid for long, but it gets positive comments from everyone who sees it. Plaid rocks ;)
