Weekend Quickies, Saturday, March 24, 2012

1970 Marcos GT - Marcos, like so many other British cottage industry automakers, has been in and out of business several times. Also, like so many British cottage industry automakers, they built some interesting, cool, cars.

The design of the Marcos GT body dates back to the early 1960s. It's a testament to the designers that it still looks fairly modern today.

The Marcos GT was available with a number of different engines. This one has a Ford 3.0 liter V6 in it. With this engine it is supposedly good for 120 MPH.

This Marcos GT looks to be in incredible condition. If you have the money and you're looking for something British and unusual, this would be a great car to check out.

1990 Toyota Camry All-Trac - This is something you don't see very often these days. A Camry with All-Trac.

All-Trac was Toyata's AWD system.

These were not incredibly popular cars as their cost was significantly higher than the standard 2WD Camry.

This is a blessedly unmodified car. It even has its original cassette deck.

Camry engines were prone to head gasket failure and this one has already had its head gasket replaced. Overall, the car appears to be in nice shape.

1994 Audi 100 - 1994 was the last year of the Audi 100. In 1995 Audi made a few minor revisions and started calling it the A6.

100s usually sell for relatively little money. This one however, is going for top dollar. There's a good reason for that...

This is a 67,000 mile 100 with quattro. (Audi's quattro AWD system was an option back then. Not all cars came with it. Here's a little trivia... Audi only uses a lower-case "q" when referring to the AWD system. They use an upper-case "Q" only when referring to the original Quattro car - The UR Quattro.) It has just 67,000 miles on it. It is one of the nicest 100s I have ever seen.

The asking price is $7900.00. For that kind of money you can find some newer, more entertaining cars. However, if you have your heart set on an Audi 100, and want the best one around, this car is worth checking out.

A big thanks to Sam for sending me the link to this car!
