Hi all,

Hope you've all survived your respective Xmas dinners, mine was pretty good.

Anyway, as you can see from the subject line I couldn't stop myself and
added yet another Audi in need to the stable. It's a 1977 80 LS 2-door
automatic, with the YN 1.6 engine. It's an original Dutch-market car (very
rare now as most have long ago succumbed to the tinworm) with only 74,800
original kilometers. It's in very original condition but requires a little
attention to the rear wheelarches and trunk floor. It's Reseda green in
colour (pale green metallic) with a Linden green interior. The interior's
seen better days but I've located an excellent replacement in the correct
colour. The car drives like new, the engine purrs like a kitten and
everything works. It's also pretty quick thanks to its low weight (870 kgs).
It came with a very nice '70s Becker Europa radio but I can't get anything
but noise from it, it needs a new antenna mast.

It'll be cheap to run if nothing breaks (got plenty of spares, though)
because it's road tax exempt and doesn't cost much to insure- $60/annum for
3rd party.

Guess I'll take some digi-pics in the next coupla days if anyone's interested.

And that makes five...
