1970 Porsche 914-6 S/N 9140432654
I’ve had this car for ten years but I’m getting older and my Cayman is much easier to drive. It isn’t a concours car, it is fully caged and has a few warts. It was tweaked by Stoddard years ago and has most of the mods in the Panorama article attached below. Engine runs strong but rich, still needs some tuning.
