Decision time

Audis are way better in many regards.  I really enjoyed my MK2 16V as a
daily driver (it was my first VW and second car)... but now that I'm older,
I want more comfort, less noise, etc.  Yeah, that means mass.

I really should go through my clean 87 4KCSQ and get it on the road.  All my
friends are like "wtf?" but I love it.  If I don't get it going soon, I
might have to sell it....   the plans were to drop in a MAC-1 and ice race
it.... I have both a parts 4KCSQ and a donor MAC-1 (from a 5000 Turbo FWD),
but lack the time.

I miss my 16V.... but if I had to drive it daily today, I'd probably not be
so nostalgic.
