I wonder if anyone else has seen the "feeler" on the Audifans for sale page.
A 1991 200 20valve Avant with 75,000 miles?

The feeler is from someone feeling about for his friend.  Ah, huh.  Well,
perhaps.  The asking price on the header is over fourteen grand, but the
purpose is to sample the market.

If the car is real, it would be yummy providing it hasn't ever been hit and
there are some reasonable service records.  Bear in mind that about three or
four years ago there was a one owner 200 20valve Avant that was sold by the
dealer in Naples, Florida for $5500.  I called one half hour too late on
that car, but was told that the car was an original one owner taken in trade
by some people who had move to Florida from up north someplace.  That car
was burgundy over tan.  

The car that has prompted this is Lago over black.  My thoughts are that if
the car is the real deal, has ALL the service records from day one, and can
be verified as accident free and in PERFECT condition, it might be worth
$7500, and that is supposing that it doesn't need a timing belt right and
all that jazz right now.

But if the car has ANY northern history at all, or if the service records
are not intact, or primarily from Joe's Shade Tree Garage, deduct $3500.
