'92-'95 Audi 100 Scale Model [1:43] "Audi 100. Eine Klasse fur Kenner"

 Hello, q-listers (and one very generous South African),

   My quest for a scale model replica of my car has ended just now. I've
just placed this very cool little Titanium Gray 100CS on my desk here
(assuming CS since the fog lights are perched precariously out at the front
lower corners just as mine are).  I originally requested the 1:24 scale, but
to no avail, so I settled for the 1:43 for a total of $15.70. A bit pricey
for a desktoy slightly larger in scale than a Matchbox, but what my wife
doesn't know I spend won't kill me.

  So for those interested, and I know there were a few, the part number ZAW
876 502 fetches a lovely little 100 created by a company called C.E.
Schabak. The model, true to form, is made in Germany. Hmm, I wonder if there
are performance upgrades for this? Anyway, the product order tag that I have
here includes a comment on it to,  "Pick a gray car." Apparently, that works
in the warehouse, who knew? Call your local Audi parts department today.

BTW, does anyone know what "Eine Klasse fur Kenner" means? Its printed on
the back of the box containing the scale model.
