Chevy V8: 1973 Porsche 914

When we get a tip from not one, but TWO of DT's most famous tippers...well...that is a sign of something...not entirely sure of what, but I think it means the car NEEDS to get featured.  Find this 1973 Porsche 914 with Chevy V8 offered for $6,500 in Cole Valley, CA via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck and Kaibeezy.

The shadow of a hooded figure stands tall in the late afternoon sun.  How did I get here?  Is that grass..or a thick lawn of weeds?  Our hero bends down to investigate the ground covering.  Click...whrrrrrrrrrrr of an auto rewinding 35mm film camera reminds him of a time long ago...had he seen this car before?

"Whatcha got under the hood, Karl?"
"Some people call it a small block. I call it a Chevy V8.  Mhm."
"And why did you do it?"
"Dunno.  I suppose it seemed like a good thing to do at the time."

"Why the cage, Karl?"
"Mhm.  I suppose you'd want to be safe in a crash.  I reckon all that power in the back could cause some trouble for folk."
"Should I have a helmet and harness for the test drive?"
"Just hold on real tight, you'll be fine.  Mmhm."
