    are you a small person? They're kinda dinky, and by that I mean like a toy floaty boat for the bathtub as compared to a real floaty boat for the ocean.

    Don't worry about the rust, unless it's really bad. They came with rust from the factory. :o

    Rust isn't called car cancer for no good reason; if it's in a couple places you can see, it's in a dozen places you can't see, too.

    I'd say if you can find a 356, that may be more rewarding to restore.
    I was only 10 when my dad restored a 356B, but it was really memorable.

    You'll love it once you're done and driving it.

    But man, you'll be fucking screaming the whole way of the process of resto/build.

    Restoring a 914 can be like spending $10 000 to build a $5 000 car.
