A Quick Late Night Post...

Back in April I wrote a post about a 1992 Audi V8. I like these cars. They're not especially exciting to look at, but their performance is top notch.

Here's another one...

This one is interesting because it's a 5 speed. Being an "executive car" most Audi V8s came through with automatics. The manual transmission adds a little more fun to what is already a fun sedan. According to the seller, only 76 Audi V8s came to the US with a 5 speed transmission.

The car being offered on eBay is far from perfect. It has some slight body damage and the seller says it has a few spots of rust. The engine has recently has some service done to it and it has new tires and brakes. The seller also states that the power windows and sunroof work. (Those can be troublesome on older Audis.)

Older Audis have little value. This may be a chance to get a lot of car for little money.

The Audi V8 had a similar problem that the VW Phaeton did by looking way too much like an Audi 100 (or Passat in the case of the Phaeton). That said, I too always liked the V8 and it says a lot that it was available with a manual transmission in the US. Now, you cannot even get an A6 with a manual (and yes, I am still a hold out and only drive manuals fro my cars)

I had no idea that they made this with a 5 speed. Audi automatics were problematic.

I'm with Max... Manual is the only way to go.
