Signal Yellow is one of the colors I'm considering for my -6 conversion. Do you have more pics?

Lately these cars have been doing it for me more and more. I haven't driven one yet, but what a great way to get into a classic Porsche. If only my garage was bigger!

Your car looks to be in great shape. Enjoy the miles.

Komeda, the fun factor is fantastic while driving, they are lower and wider than you 911 was, balanced well, and can make wonderful noises with the right motorvation.

I love my 951, but will probably sell it once my six conversion is finished! =)

I'm amazed when I take things apart how clean this car really is. Not unhappy at all with how it drives either.

Nice 72'

Congratulations on getting your 914. Like you I've wanted one forever. Since they were new actually when I was a teenager. I picked up my Irish Green 72' about 5 months ago and have been having a blast fixing it up and driving as much as I can which really has not been that much. My car is a lot rougher than yours but pretty damn solid. I see yours is a 1.7L. Do you have the high compression motor? That's what I have and it runs pretty good. I will put a larger engine with carbs later but for now enjoying the 1.7. I hope to get mine painted within the next couple months and when I do I'll post up pics too! I'm staying with the original Irish Green which I love. Your color is a close second in my book! Enjoy your car this summer!

Great timing for getting your gorgeous car. Enjoy the summer tooling around in your new head-turner. Congrats
