First be gentle

Yes, the 914 can be a rusty can, but there are many good ones still around (I'm selling my '73 so I can buy a quattro)....sorry you view it as the worst car you've ever had...maybe a ride in a good one would alter your opinion.

Money in pocket can be a key...I bought a 1953 MGTD in excellent shape for $400 at a poker game (his rent money to stop eviction). Also bought a 1960 150S Jaguar Drophead w/D Jag racing engine from factory...triple Webers and for $400. Wife was mad at her husband who'd gone to Alaska looking for work a year previous and never returned...she just wanted it gone like him. Bought a 1929 Pontiac Opera Coupe and a 1951 Pontiac Chieftain (both excellent...towed the 29 w/the 51 after a battery switch) for $100 and an afternoon's conversation with the old lady that owned them. Deals are always there for those who look...the guys that bought the above from me probably feel they got great deals, as I sold them too cheap (in retrospect) and wish I had all of them now...
