Feel the Love Dave

I'm batting a thousand.

DaveD shuts down a fun thread and I got kicked out of a V8 conversion list. LOL

I wanted to apologize to all the 914 PP people for my wild outbursts and flamboyant posts that are both cynical and uncalled for.

Somebody should have turned my computer off last night. I came to the shop after spending most of the day at a barbeque in San Jose where I was thoroughly hammered on Margarita's and Corona's.

After reading my posts today.... oh boy.

You'll get over it.

I thought it was sort of hilarious myself. 914 conversation is cool, but sometimes a little spice is needed. Oh and where was that conversion list? I noticed Porchev at Yahoo is no longer available.

In case this is just the season of the rant - why don't we all fire the 'puters and bombard Porsche AG with emails about their stupidity in going after every nuance of german windsuckers on BBSs?

Careful tho' - they have REAL laywers and may lien sale your project for damages.

I didn't mind the first couple of replies. But when I woke up this morning and saw 20 some replies to my original post I was like cool lots of feedback on my chassis.

WRONG ANSWER
Nothing but jibberish.

Take your useless replies and send private messages to each other. It does not benefit this board. And BLAH BLAH BLAH, you get my message.

Speedo,

I got kicked out of the V8_Porsche_Conversions group.

They shut down Porschev.. so I started my own.

www.all914.com/porschev

The plan is to move it to Trackaccess.com so the 944 and 911 people dont feel so bad.

Ron,

I like the idea of bombarding Porsche AG. I sent 1000 emails to Gray Davis a few months ago about security on the Golden Gate bridge (or lack of).. Now the FBI helps me on the 914's and opens my truck door for me when I get home.

Kevin,

The world has leaders and follows. Those that can be leaders normally bump heads against the other leaders as they run across them. I learned this in business several years back.

You cannot win them all.

No worries, B, just trying to defuse things there. Note that neither you nor Derek (nor anyone else that I know of, come to think of it!) have lost posting priveleges.

Besides, if I piss you off too badly, where will I go when I want to be able to disassemble 914 engines for fun???

Ok I was waiting for you to show up Dave. What is up with your ride? It seems you are always working on it or something. Just wanted to know if you got it runnin. Being so close to all these guys I am sure you have an abundance of help and maybe deals on parts. Maybe even runnin onto six conversion parts all the time too. Is that what your doing? Stuffing in a six? Just writin out loud.

I havent touched Daves car in over a year or so. I *think* DaveD just got back a good pressure sensor that Brad Anders checked out for him along with several good 2.0 brains.

We actually dont see much of Dave. He is a social butterfly as we all know, but its rarely at a shop...more like the pub or club. LOL

Well, I haven't really even looked at the car since I took the muffler off of it to loan to Apoplexy for testing. BTW, has she been by the shop for that yet, B? When I find/make some time, I will get out there and put on the tested-good MPS and ECU. That will at least give me a starting point again.

I havent been able to get her in here. We have a race this weekend with POC at Laguna, so... it will probably be next week before I can even think about it.
