1973 Porsche 914 2.0 (the 2)
Last updated Dec 31, 2009
This was one of the best 914's made other than the 914/6 which is so rare that few people ever even saw one. Still with the delicate bumpers, new 2 liter engine, new Fuch rims with a power increase in an attractive car for a box. Mine was in white, received in a trade with an uncle going though a change of life when he bought this one. Unable to work a standard shift he tried to learn during a Hamilton winter. Well after spinning backwards on an offramp he called me to take it, trading him a 1974 Datsun 260Z 2+2 automatic. The 260Z was my attempt at a family car and I was really bored with it so the 914 got me through a marriage breakup along with a new 78 Yamaha XS400 at the time. I kept the 914 for a few years, used it extensively year round and it was surprisingly a roomy car.
Sold to a lady running a hair cutting shop in the Beaches which led her on to a 911 SC evenually.
