Any other original owners?

Just curious if there are any other original owners of 914's out there? It was my first car and I've had it since Dec 1970... it will never leave the family as my boys will fight over it when I'm long gone.

I've had many Porsches over the years but the 914 is still my sentimental favourite.... (the silver one is my first, the red a gift from the widow of a dear friend who died way too early... we used to autocross against each other back in the 70's...)

And one of the race car- maybe not German, but it's the right colour combo!!

Now that I see your garage, I remember you from Rennlist. I think we chatted there as well.

I suppose... technically... yes..


but I don't like to think of an R32 as a GTI.. it has a different name =)

I am (an original owner). I realize technically I don't own it yet (too young), but it means just as much to me.
