You totaled one 996, and received enough to purchase two. I know who I'll be asking for a referral from....

Maybe you can use some of that money to fix up one of those junkers ... I mean 914s ... you have:

Schnelly is a whiz and building LiPo batteries now so I'm sure he can help out. What could possibly go wrong?

I would be converting my buddy's 914 to an EV, except that I really want to turn it into an outlaw 914; stupidly, he wants to sell it before I hack it up. That's a problem.

914 have gained value. You should get your brother to reconsider and start a rebuild. It would for good brotherly fun too! ;)

That's why he wants to sell it - blah blah appreciated value...sure, it will be worth a bit less after I ruin it, but what are friends for?
