Default Happy 50th Golden anniversary to the 914

Our beloved & fun 914 first introduced at the Frankfurt International Auto Show in 1969, turns 50 years Young this year. Please post up any 914 meet-ups, exhibits, rallies or Porsche authorized 914 gatherings that you have heard about Here !
I've read up about the Stuttgart Museum having a 50th 914 gathering in June/ July 2019.
This is pecla's outlaw brother, seen this week in the San Fernando Valley bringing his 914 Charm to Y'all !

My car should be home to celebrate the 50th after a complete restoration- years in the making.

We (MSDS) provided some swag for the last OcteenerFest...and the organizers said that it was one of the best in the Raffle. Need to ship more swag to the next event !

...It will be one of the hottest 914s on the planet; maybe the first 9146 I've ever seen that utilized Bi-coastal bodyshops !!

Yeah....not the high point of the restoration. But Kent's skills are beyond anything I have ever seen- and I worked in a body shop as a young kid when guys still did lead work on cars. Were it not for Kent, Jim, Andy and Bob stepping up to the plate my Six would have likely been a stalled, never finished project car. I expect to be posting some pictures very soon as my car goes from Kent's to Jim's. But really, it's a pretty stock restoration with a 3.2 added so nothing to get anyone really excited. Most people looking at the car will never know it has been enhanced a bit. It's amazing the way the project evolved. Initially I was going to do a GT flared, all-out street car. Then after reading and listening to a lot of people decided to keep it narrow-bodied. Finally, it was Kent, Jim, Andy and Bob that walked me back to pretty stock in all ways except the aforementioned 3.2.
