It's now in Baltimore. I drove it down last weekend. It needs a few
things, but nothing major (as far as I can tell). Temp and gas gauge need
fixed, and the climate control blower motor will need a R&R. Also among
consideration was an S6 Avant and 91 200 Avant (I wanted a wagon). The nice
thing(s) about the V8 was the sports interior, 5-speed, documentation about
2" thick, and upgraded front brakes (apparently some european S6 capiler
over an A8 rotor). I knew it had been converted from UFO, but was
expecting the "downgraded" setup. Came with a set of 16" wheels for winter
use (some fairly well used Blizzak WS-15's on them now - necessary in
Buffalo I imagine).
It's sitting next to a '90 V8 (black on grey), '86 5ktq (w/hitch), and '97
5kt (parts car). Wife says the parts car must go, and I'm not going to
argue with her on that point.
