I have the opportunity to buy a very lovely 1991 Audi 90. It is equipped with the 20v, and Quattro. It has a manual trans, and all options other than a sunroof (I don't know if it was an option).
The car has 90,000kms on it, and was imported just a couple years ago from Germany.
The interior is perfect, the engine has a full service history, and the body is mint. The only downside is a very leaky PS pump, and needs a couple small thinks like new rotors and pads, and a set of tires.
So would you buy it if you could? I'm looking for a project car that is winter capable, and will respond well to a turbo.
A friend owns it now, and he just picked up a BMW 530xi wagon with a manual transmission and is looking to part with the Audi. I could probably get it for under $2000. Opinions?
It would be strictly a project car. I have a beater 2001 Civic that I use day to day. The Audi would sit in a garage on the west coast until I move back next summer. Obviously sitting for a year won't be all together kind to it.
Pics for clicks!!!
Not the actual car. I'll try to find a couple shots I took of it a few years ago. It looks like this, but black. Small bumpers, euro headlights, etc.
