Re: Audi Wagons

Jeff steps in it too!!:

where do you folks get this 'information'? you certainly haven't seen
an S6... I seriously doubt that mine's the only one in the world with
a 3rd seat (and a turbo to boot!!)

just ask any of the folks in the Northwest Quattro club as to how an
S6 wagon performs on the track. I think either my wife or I (we both
drove separately) caught and/or passed everything on the track that
day. There was one fellow who had a Ned equipped 200TQW, but he had
problems with poisoning (testosterone) and spun off the track. Never
got a chance to give him a try.

I could care less about stoplight drags. They really beat up your
car and only show one facet of a car's performance envelope. Since
you've bought an Audi (or are on the list anyway) I'd assume you are
interested in the others....

As for being 'cool', I guess I'll never be as cool as the guy in the
late model Camaro (w/ 'G-FORCE license plate) that we dusted coming
back over Mt. Hood. We had a full Thule top case, two bicycles and
otherwise stuffed with equipment. 

took him on an inside corner at 90+, definitely uncool... =80
