Re: Pros and cons of v8 Quattro

In a message dated 97-06-29 17:33:41 EDT, you write:

<< HA!!! A major engine rebuild would be way to easy.....you MUST buy a
 complete short block.......$9700 >>

Ummm....well, all of my cars put together don't come close to that
amount....although that amount is also more than the price of a nice 944
turbo, a GTI 16v 2 liter,  A 90 20V quattro,  a 928S, a decent 88 M3,  or
even a early 80's 560 SEC.  Hell, you could also pick up a really nice early
MGB, a super 2002Tii, a Corrado SLC VR6,  rougly 9 1984 GTis,  a nice 84 TQC,
 a decent late 70's early 80's 911, a 88 735i, 2 or 3 4000CSQ's, 2
5000SCTQW''s, or a nice set of 20 inch BBS wheels with BFG Comp TA R1 tires.
 I bet they'd look good on a V8 even if it didn't run.
