24 Spiel – February 2022 Dennis has held many positions in PNWR over the past 38 years including President, Tour Chairman, Social Chairman and Currently Concours Chairman for the past 16 years. He loves driving all his Porsches and other hobbies include boating in the San Juan Islands, travel and anything with his family. Auction week in here in AZ is over. I may report on some of the top sales in next month's column. Meanwhile, here is the second installment of Darryl Deppe's 914 refresh. Thanks Darryl.

As I was finishing up the restoration of my 1964 356C last year and well into the pandemic chaos, I found myself encountering longer and longer waits on backordered parts from my usual sources: Stoddards/NLA Parts, Pelican Parts, and Sierra Madre Collection. As I started on the 914 and saw full container ships at anchor outside backed-up ports on the evening news, it occurred to me that the way to avoid supply chain interruptions was to make scouring Parts for the 1974 Porsche 914 Techanical Refresh Story and Photographs by Darryl Deppe
