Not often I have strong feelings about this sort of thing.

What is being used to make a beautiful marriage is perfectly good viable classic cars rather than ones destined for the bridge. Yes I understand the arguments for and against, money rules, people do what they want, its a free country, etc.

However, more classic audis of all types still alive and on the road means there will be many different types of owners. This creates a stronger classic audi community. Every time someone cuts up 2 audis to make one car means that the community loses the potential to have 2 NEW owners.
Overall that is what any club/community needs is fresh blood being encouraged and welcomed no matter which model of audi they own.

I do see your point, indeed. But as a guardian of 3 classic Audis, I suspect (despite his modifying urges ) Mr Simmonds is being a bit tongue in cheek

Damn, rumbled.... Making mischief, sorry.

I actually agree, I'm not a big fan of most 'home grown' shorties. Very few were done completely properly with the modified 'C' pillars and roof skins. The little 80 that's for sale also makes for a lot more work in turning into a road-going short sport as it is a 4 door shell... It is indeed better keeping its humble roots.

The fad for making SQ's also appears to have passed.

I guessed as much however i felt like saying it. I almost added top the conversation a while back about what is a classic audi and I think the above still counts for that

Glad to hear that basically we're all batting on the same side and let's hope the new owner of the 4 door 1500 joins us on CA Forum to let us know how he gets on with getting the old girl back on her feet/tyres.

Chris, you have to click on the "Ebay Link" above where I've written my text......although it'll just take you to Gumtree as it appears the ad has been removed.
