I'm embarassed to say they park that way because after reinstalling the wiper motor and wiring I must have put the wires back wrong as that is where it parked. Like them out of line of sight so left it that way... even with a wiring diagram, being colour blind creates some problems.

I'm really wondering what will happen the first time I hook up the battery on the '73 after putting it back together!! Think I'll have my son nearby to disconnect in a hurry if I smell smoke!!


A picture of my dad with his '71 he bought 6 months after I got mine- didn't want me to have all the fun. I luckily inherited the car gene from him and his dad... pic taken around 1972.

Boy I wish this one was mine! A friend took this today at the Collier Musuem in Naples FL. It has reopened to the public 3 days a week as the Revs Institute

Wanted to get in that place for years but never timed it right as they only let car clubs in sporatically...

Steve - did you buy that front spoiler or make it?

The Collier Museum is open again? Looks like I just added a trip to FL!

Hi Matt,

I got it from Patrick. I since have added a aluminum splitter, and better ducting to the oil cooler.
It fit really well

Heres my 72 . Got it a couple years ago It was in two floods and off the road since 84' Folding in half from the rust. Actually doesnt look too bad in this pic but had gallons of bondo holding it together. Cleaned up pretty good! Still got the 1.7 but it gets the job done. Looking forward to putting more miles on it this season

Yup the beetle is a 62 that was my brothers progect. We actually got them on the same day. coming home from buying the beetle for $200. We spotted the 914 and asked about it. The lady was a recent widow. We were the only ones that ever asked about it that didnt want to scrap it so she took our offer of $200. She got the better end of the deal I think But the beetle needed floors and a good rebuild. My brother is an extremely low budget kinda guy but we made it solid and its been a good car. Widened the fenders 6" in the back and 2" in front to get the look

Some of my "gone but not forgotten's" with varying degrees of seller 's remorse on each.

Most memorable was owning the Daytona winning GT. That's my wife and I standing with the car in the Daytona fan zone at the 24hr.
We were invited to attend a reunion with other class winners and got to drive in the 24 minutes of Daytona.It was quite a thrill.

I just recently sold the "purple" car and at age 66 probably won't do much more racing in 914's. ( but I still have my SM)
Its been a great 22+ years with these cars.

Regards to you all.

Tom B.
