After spending GBP8000 in three years on parts and labour - I'm actually buying
a second one!
Actually - not quite. John Coughtrie (also an ur-quattro nutcase) is selling
me his 1983 Coupe GT (with a 1985 injection engine) for GBP700. He can't
afford to run three cars because, largely, of parking restrictions near his
home. His wife _insisted_ that he find "a good home" for "her" car - so it's
moving four miles north and she can visit it Sundays.
I'm just looking through John's (inch-think) invoice file ...
We think the car has done, overall, around 210k miles.
Anyway, this should give me the chance I need to get the ur-quattro up on axle
stands for some serious restoration.
