Wanna a BIG SCARE? Keep track of the maintenance costs.

My 914/6 conversion costs weren't too bad. $6,687 in 1987, not counting brake & suspension upgrades. I got back $1,250 selling off the 2.0L & SS exhaust.

But, my 914/6 spreadsheet shows I have spent $19,029 on maintenance stuff since 1985. Things like tires(6 sets), tune-ups(18), alignments(7), batteries(6), trans rebuild(1), windsheilds(3) etc..

Thats roughly $1057/year over 18 years & 190,350 miles. Can't complain, I have really enjoyed designing, building, modifying & mostly driving the moneypit!
