Of course after the trip the car was a mess. using a motel wastebasket as a bucket and some motel shampoo I gave the car a quick bath in the parking lot and headed to the show. Turned out pretty good.

I got to talk to Mike at the SOUL tent, looking into a Catted downpipe for the 718 Cayman. Seeing their parts in person made me confident that is the company I will go with when I decide to part with the cash. The quality looks top-notch and they are enthusiastic about meeting you and discussing their wares.
Thanks for stopping by, it was great chatting with you!

Olympic Blue Some pictures from the Hershey Porsche Swap meet & Show

Didn't see any 718 cars in the Concours area. Mid engine class had 12 entries 6-914, 5- Boxster and a lone Cayman GTS. The 914s swept the class taking not only the top 3 spots but the announcer stated they got the 4th and 5th place votes also. this is not a Councours judged event, its a Peoples Choice. Where the others that entered the Concours show area get to vote on all the cars in the show. only way to get a ballot is to enter.


Funny thing, in previous years the 914 owners would complain about being grouped in with the newer Boxsters / Caymans models. So you have 40+ year old cars competing with sometimes NEW or newer cars. Well this this year when handing out the trophys the PCA judge/announcer said "looks like the 914 guys can quit complaining about wanting their own class"

This is swap is worth the drive if you are in the East.

SOUL Tent



This was the E-class Mid-engine row, E-class had the most entries of all classes.



Couple nice looking GT-3





Some of the 914 competition.




this beige 914 took the 1st place in class E.



And one of my car



Now this picture was from last year 2018, He was here again this year and was the lone Cayman GTS. he had driven down from Michigan. I had parked next to this guy last year because I had been looking at the Sapphire Blue 718 Cayman at the dealer and had decided that was what I wanted.



this is what I got...…

Sort of a Prophetic picture don't ya think....

If it weren't going to be a total wrencher, I wouldn't mind having an original stock one. But I'm too old anymore for spending all that time tinkering.

Nice car!

upgraded from 1.7 to 2056, bigger brakes, slight flares. stock interior, original color paint.


you can find the build thread google > 914 World Olympic Blue Resurrection. It won't let me add a link.
