My Porsches (2 Boxster & 914)

Hello Folks,

So I'm sort of a newbie to any Porsche forums, including here, and so far for the last 8 years have been modding my Boxster purely by my own imagination and some of the research and experience I've brought from previous car ownerships and modding.

First is my 1997 Base. It is actually manufactured in 10/96 and based on the VIN was assembled in Stuttgart as part of the first batch. I have many accessories for it, including humps, hardtop, multiple set of rims in 18's and 19's (oz, and ssr gt1)






Second is a 2001 Boxster S I picked up few month back to put some of the ideas that I did not put into my 1997 986, including ram-air, and also being the best base for the engine swap. The price was too good to pass it up.




The third is a 1975 custom wide body 914.





Enjoy

Didn't mention but the 1997 has tons of mods. Everything from brakes, exhaust, suspension, interior, intake, etc.
The list is very long. Always been a bargain hound, so some of the parts I would be hunting down for years until I found it at the killer price. Example being, I paid $600 for the hardtop. I paid $550 for Litronics. I paid $400 for the Porsche GT steering wheel, and the list goes on.

Wondering what you guys think

I like them all! I am not particulary cheap but like you, I will look and wait for a good deal on an upgrade, e.g., spent several months until I recently bought a set of Bilstein PSS9's brand new for $1500.

Post up a few more pic's of the 914, that is one cool looking car!

Sorry I don't sell my Porsches. Hoping to expand my collection and keep it for life.

But out of curiosity, how much do you think it would be worth?
