With far too many projects on my hands and not enough
time for them, I've decided to give up the seemingly
futile task of keeping the 5ktq running happily.
Between a turbocharged & stand alone EFI powered
Miata, +2mm/headwork/carb modded Ducati, Boxster,
"project house", work (looking like 3+ mos travel next
year), and a sprint kart I haven't had a chance to run
yet - the Audi just isn't getting the attention it

I picked up a clean '97 Civic for those days when the
Miata just isn't practical daily transportation -
don't laugh, its my all purpose beater and we had ~4"
snow yesterday (Michelin snows are the key here).
While a quick 5k quattro seemed like a good idea at
the time, reality set in when I realized how much
upkeep these things require. The Civic should be the
exact opposite - never thought I'd say it but
appliance cars have their place after all.

So with that in mind, anyone looking for a mostly
complete '87 5ktq project car? Lots of new bits over
the last couple years including clutch(OEM),
springs(H&R), shocks(Boge), fuel tank, fuel pump, oil
cooler & hoses, steering rack, pentosin hoses, etc.
Pearl w/ Black leather. Interior in excellent shape,
sunroof works, has VDO 3 gauge panel in place of
center switches inc boost / volt / oil pressure, 186k
mi, lots of spare bits. Known issues: rear windows
don't work (switches need cleaning), radio not so
good, random short in dash lights - pops fuse
resulting in no instrumentation, fuel pump primes but
doesn't run during crank, A/C compressor gone (rest of
HVAC works fine). I have neither the time nor
motivation to fix these issues although I could get it
running if someone was serious about giving it a new
home. Want $1750 for all of it (inc. most of a spare
MC1 bottom end, head, K26, misc). Have receipts
totalling *way* too much.

Car is near Dearborn, Michigan. Offlist if you're
