should I buy an older Quattro wagon/Avant?

It's not like I need any more cars or anything ....

As I get back into competing in dog agility, I am finding that I 
really need a wagon! I have been hauling my dogs around to horse arenas 
in my track-prepared 80Q. It's getting really old to bounce over rutted 
roads and potholes, wondering if I've put my rims out of round, and then 
to haul my muddy dogs in and out of the back seat.

I'd like a wagon to haul the dogs and I'd want AWD, and I can't spend 
more than $1000, as this car will not replace my sedan.  &:-)

Is it a reasonable goal to get a wagon that is of a similar generation to 
my 80Q? Is there anything to avoid? Is there an advantage to finding a 
turbo charged engine, or would the early turbo likely be more trouble in 

Any other ideas?
