Thumbs up 914-6 conversion values

a dedicated thread to this is a good idea; did you also start one on World?

it also would help the wannabees who are dreamin' about that $500 shell in the uncle's backyard who are planning a credit-card build

agree with racer - CSOB's still rule in our 914 scene

- i've been tracking 'em for some yrs & could probably post a bunch of links, etc - (on some cold rainy week when i'm stuck inside & bored....)

fwiw i've often suggested that the value of a conversion = the eBay(or similar) used value of the parts separately - labor is irrelevant & mostly not valued -

- have not yet seen many sales yet to change this opinion given the run-up in 911 used engines & parts values - that $21K sale is about there

- 'cuz the 911 resurrection & modding guys will still pay more for an item than will a 914 guy

- we can still get a decent driver project 911 for the money it takes to get a 914-6 conversion on the road

- just sayin
