I totally agree. In fact, I have always felt this, personally. To me
the value is the fun in driving the car. And its more fun with more
power, more reliable power, more useable power. And the camaraderie is
just as important/fun to me, too. That said, if the car being original
brings the owner pleasure - that is what counts.

Well, it seems the time has come. The bottom has dropped out of the
price of Ur Quattros. There have been 5 or 6 decent '83 examples that
have failed to meet very modest reserves on Ebay, bottoming out between
$4k and $6k. The black one from AZ, a silver one in CA, and many others,
including mine that I would argue is the most reliable UrQ on the road
(unless you could that time in UT at very high altitude ;-).
No one is willing to pay for these cars. A pristine '85 should fetch
$15k...... but that doesn't seem to be happening either. I spent a lot
of time putting the old '84 back to complete stock, but no more for me.
Reality call to those looking to create concours '83s, just modify the
damn thing and have fun driving it, give it some power, swap in a 20V,
stop wasting your time trying to stay stock with a car whose US
perfomance figures were lackluster at best. I'm putting a 4.2L V8 in my
'85 next month after the year-long full restoration. It has 160,000
miles on the original odometer, and despite being from beverly hills and
being MINT in body, it doesn't seem worth putting her back to stock.
Just my $0.02.
1983 and 1985 UrQs. _______________________________________________
