one of my favourite Audis—-the B3/B4 Audi Coupe quattro—gets overlooked because of the Ur quattro, but that just makes them even better—so cool.  I still want one….

cheap eurocar wants: under $4k

I’ve got this weird desire to own a ‘cheap and older’ european classic car.  It is a persistent desire and I constantly find myself perusing the classified ads looking for that perfect cheap-ass eurobox…..something that makes me look like a disgruntled member of the United Nations from the 80s or 90s.  Clearly it’s a stupid desire, as i possess MINIMAL mechanical ability to fix these on my own, and them being european; i am virtually guaranteed things going wrong……..but regardless, the desire lives on…and i can’t get rid of it.

my top 5 ‘cheap’ classic cars i want…….WHAT are you guys after? Do you already own a ‘modern’ classic euro car? any stories?

1. Audi 90 (B3): Not sure why i want these so much, but i think it stems from my experiences with one back in the year 2000, when i bought a used 1993 Volvo 850.  During my test drives, I had also driven a 1995 Audi 90 quattro….and i LOVED it…it was so much better than the Volvo.  But it was also $15k, i bought the Volvo for $9k.  I still have an eye out these days…looking for that old woman selling her 90 Quattro.  I’m hoping i can find a REALLY clean one for less than $2500…..unmodded, unabused…i think it’s possible.  It’d be fun to throw these around in the winter…and to use as a utility car….

2. Audi 4000 Quattro: While looking for Audi 90s, i started seeing these 4000s popping up….for cheap.  like $1500 for those weird 80s boxy Audis….with quattro.  They’re sort of like buying an Audi quattro coupe….but not really….Either way, they look very german, and i really dig em.  Similar to the 90, if i find an old couple selling their unabused 4000 quattro, i’ll be so tempted to buy one.

3. BMW 3-series E30: Yeah it’s all played out now, because every european car enthusiast knows about the $2000 E30 that you can find on craigslist, so now you have thousands of people looking for these E30s….but they really are a cool eurobox to pick up cheap and drive around for kicks; the biggest problem is how many people are looking for em……

4. Alfa Romeo GTV6: Such a cool car, i still remember one of my best friends in 3rd grade used to get dropped off by his mother in one of these….and i loved it then.  They look much smaller in real life now than i remember them to be back then…but they make a helluva noise still.  It’s tough to find a ‘cheap’ one in good condition, but i think it’s possible.  I know Brad from Automobiliac picked his up cheap….and it looks great.   An affordable way for an american to get a very cool Alfa Romeo for sure…(look at the one in the picture below; it is the HOTNESS)

5. VW Corrado: Another car i always wanted.  Unfortunately all the kiddies into VWs have bought lots of them, abused them, modded them poorly and distastefully, and most of the 2nd hand Corrados i see are quite broken.  Even more unfortunately, when i do find ‘clean’ Corrados…i’m pretty sure they WILL break soon after getting it anyways.  So it’s a car i look at, but i would NEVER buy unless i become trained as a mechanic, because they are always proned to breaking…..

Before the Audi Quattro.  Before the…err…80’s. Before the advent of shaving moustaches.  Before the banning of orange and brown vans.  THERE WAS  THIS FOTO! 1979, german style! AUDI 80 rally car and associated weird Audi Van.

car of the day. Audi RS2.

Well, i’m a self-confessed Audi person; however these days i’ve had an overwhelming fascination with the Audi RS2.  Developed with Porsche in the mid-90s, the Audi RS2 is the beginning of the entire RS brigade that Audi would further launch afterwards.

Yes, it’s a wagon—yes it was engineered by Porsche—-and yes it’s faster from 0-30 than a McLaren F1.  They never brought these to the USA, and that blows—-however word is there are a couple in the US, and a couple more that are being converted into RS2s from regular Audi 80/90.  Avants…..interesting.

A friend of mine from Norway, Espen—-recently had his RS2 stolen in Norway.  Those daft bastards—–you’re gonna get busted.

I WANT!
