On the last page it says "fahrvergnuegen".
don't they realize that the 914/6 isn't a VW? :-)

Translation (literal)

Page 1:

The body of this vehicle was already restored and painted before 10
years. Then the owner began the adventurous search for the rare GT
sections and rebuilt the vehicle. Now is it so far - the car is
drivingready and the last handles and checks pends.

Page 2:

Einige of the GT specific sections and special features:

On the right: Cathedral props in the trunk down: mechanical pig
thrower operation down on the right: the large tank

Page 3:

Left above: Overroll bar and on the right bowl seat above:
felt-referred instrument panel at the bottom left hand corner:
Emergency power switch down on the right: Hood opener

Page 4:

Special features outside:

Left: Catches for the front hood at the bottom left hand corner: the
opened front hood down on the right: punched hood hinges

Page 5:

******Oben left: Tank opening in on the right front hood above: Openers
for the engine cover ***Unten left: through-punched engine cover down
on the right: Catch of the rear flap

Page 6:

**Der oil cooler - correctly inserted is half cooled... On the right:
Frontal view of the radiator inlet center left: low-cut front sheet
metal for air intake with lattice center on the right, at the bottom
left hand corner: Soil window for ventilation shaft (output) down on
the right: inserted ventilation shaft. The ventilation shaft is
available in the trade out of plastic or sheet metal (as also in the
original). In addition, build is problem-free possible

Page 7:

The oil cooler - line process at the vehicle original wiring
- screen sequence in "read direction" - from workstation and assembly
run the lines base first from the trunk into the interior and from
there by (the one which can be again cut out) a hole in the rear left
being wall at the Aussenschweller. Fixed at the Schweller along the
lines finally run to the rear of the vehicle and into the engine
compartment.

Page 8:

*Fahrwerkeinstellung: The chassis of a completely dismantled and again
assembled vehicle must again be adjusted on an oh measuring status, in
order to ensure an optimal handling. This protects the lowest possible
tire wear and an optimal measure to driving safety in the
kurvenverhalten and a clean keeping in track regret.

Page 9:

*Fahrvergnuegen are called in English by the way "drivingdivert" last
handles of the owner personally: Number-describe screwed on and then
kann's loose-go...

Just a computer translation from Sherlock... I have no idea how accurate it is.

I suppose it would be like trying to translate someone riding a HOG (harley) into german... it wouldn't make sense either.

I can't stop laughing when I read that. It's just really funny to me!

Oops, and I meant to say - did ALL GTs have them.

I'm holding out for the updated electro-hydraulic pig thrower or EHPT.....widely used in the professional pig throwing competitions.

Pig catchers are generaly fitted with baseball type catchers masks, but modified with plexiglass to keep the "pig spray" outta their eyes.......this is considered the "s****y job" at these events.
Catchers use the term EH, PhhhhT !!! upon receipt of the flying porcine missile.......thus the origin of the word "epitaph".....wait, I have more....

What happened to the good old days when we used catapults to throw our pigs? Heck JP, when I was your age....... Ok maybe not :-)

Yup, I cracked myself up again, but you started it.

Maybe they were talking about a Gunea pig thrower like in this article: (is it Friday yet?)

Guinea pig throwing ban
Press Association, 29 September 2000

The New Zealand Education Ministry is cracking down on animal cruelty after two secondary school teachers at a conference were caught throwing guinea pigs. It has brought out a new document, Caring for Animals - A Guide for Teachers, which explains proper care techniques for pets. The teachers threw the animals to protest abot changes in education policy. A spokeswoman for a local Guinea Pig charity told Press Association: "You saw what they did? It was bloody ropeable! I want their heads on a stake, the two of 'em"

Nope, definitely a pig thrower. This one's got too much torque for Guinea pigs.
