The 1974 Porsche 914. My car is a 74 2.0 which I named Little P. I have had her now for just over 2 years and I’ve loved every minute of it. Not one moment has been spent in regret with that car. She is my first car and I hope to keep her forever. It’s a very sensual, mysterious, indescribable feeling when you drive a 914. Little P, sometimes referred to as Tiffany(named after the first girl I fell in love with), is in excellent condition and has had many modifications done. But her one true virtue is her condition. Perfect interior, only very minor SURFACE rust, very straight body, and the engine usually starts. Here is a list of modifications that have been done:

So Tiffany is a pretty wicked car. She and I have a strange relationship though. Some days I’ll sit there cussing at the top of my lungs at her, and others I’m ready to sacrifice virgins to her. Generally, I am in complete admiration of that car(almost exactly like the realtionship I have with the real Tiffany!). A lot of other people dig her action too. I paid 6000 for her, with receipts and documents stating that over 14k has been invested. I’ve had all sorts of offers too, anywhere from 1600 to 8000. Still the most intriguing offer was 1700 and two 911s.

Interesting to how people react to the car. Mainly the appreciation comes from other 914 owners, but I’ve had 914 guys ignore me completely, and 911 guys wave and comment at me. So there is a great deal of mixed emotion about the car.
