silly money for ropey old wrecks! i couldn't believe the money being asked for a mk2 rs2000 these days, even with a silly wheel/ tyre combo and unforgivable dash mod like this!!

the number plate is more than appropriate!



i'm sorry but this old heap is going to rust to bits the first sign of rain and salt!

i would rather have fifteen audi 90 quattros, thank you very much!

A fabulous picture of Per Eklund in his A2. Love it. '85 RAC was a belter, debut of the Delta S4, 6R4 and the astonishing S1 E2 Audi with the PDK box.
