914 "Sportback", Lime Rock Park Connecticut 1978 Posted: Wed Oct 31, 2018 5:25 pm     Views: 147      Rating: Not rated

Lime Rock Park race track was slightly less than 2 hours away. In '78 I drove there to watch one of the summer race sessions in my VW Dasher. The parking lot was always fun to walk through because most visitors were "car people" and there would be a big selection of modern imports or otherwise interesting vintage cars. I saw this modified 914 with a "sport roof" addition, and Western turbine-style rims. I wonder if the MA dealer plate was from Autodynamics, the dune buggy and Formula Vee builder out of Marblehead? I never saw another such conversion, and don't remember seeing it advertised in import magazines (e.g., "VW Greats").
