Yes well "junkers" usually refers to those vehicles found in a
junkyard/recycling center. 
...must be a 'regional' definition.
How much did you end up spending on this rebuild?  Would you have been
better off buying a 92-95 year model in good but high mileage form?  Was
this a personal challenge to spend that much time/money on the project?
Congradulations on the outcome of the project!  It's certainly more work
than I would have undertaken.  Glad to hear your Audi dealer was so helpful.

ahh Thank you for the good reference....I will be looking at that later

I have received few but good responses to my question.....Thanks to all!

>>Great sport to anyone else who finds this sort of thing "Good Clean Fun".

I love a looking through a good junkyard....esp those with european or
pre-1960s american  cars.  I have come across many cars that are not
wrecked, but in need of an engine/tranny rebuild to get them on the road
again....*sigh*  if only money weren't the problem.
