I guess I've got newstalgia - going to do a 3B upgrade to the rally car
this fall - trying to keep the 200 10v wagon running and 4kq MC1
conversion till the 3B gets in there...My son didn't heed the warnings
and is keeping a 95 90 on the road - loving it when it runs well, hating
it when he's replacing parts - ah the 4 rings of pleasure and pain...

Yes, there are still some of us around from the
original ur-list. I've even still got the '83 urq stuck in the garage
with its' list of unresolved problems and upgrades...and a 16 year old
son lamenting that I don't get it out enough. And that's sort of how it
seems to have gone. Now the S6 sits and waits for work to be done while
I drive the GTI, which I certainly don't like as much as either of the
other two, but who has the time to enjoy them anymore.
I think the East Coast mafia has it better than most of us...there is a
relatively connected group of mildly insane people that keep the spirit
waving, even if they are mostly a lot younger than I am. And we all
have the common bitch about what Audi has become, impressive
technological advances aside...
I miss Satch and Phil...and even the occasional flaming explosions on
