[V8] Show off your vintage Audi

I thought about it for about 15 seconds.  My urq is not in good condition
and those mo-rons would probably categorize it as a "race" type car.  My 94
V8, special ordered from the factory in silver, would probably be ignored as
well.  I'm sure their idea of vintage probably doesn't include a V8 anyway.
They probably would think that I just don't really know that it's an A8,
like every dealer one would ever try to get parts or service from.  The
thing is, they haven't yet supported the owner base well enough to make the
maintenance or restoration of any "vintage" Audi worthwhile beyond mere
enthusiast status.  How many Audis or Audi ancestors are really worth that
much money, aside from the odd barn-find chassis to be auctioned for
Seems they're out of touch with reality and are trying to put the cart
before the horse.  They need to have a look at BMW and Mercedes if they want
to even have a vintage ownership body big enough to support this event.

Do you think they would want a few V8s at the event?

Dear Audi Club Members,

Here is a chance for you to show off your vintage Audi!   Sarah Toycen,
Communications Specialist, Audi of America is looking for vintage vehicles
to display at AoA's upcoming press event in Napa Valley, August 25-27.  AoA
is looking for vehicles that are in good condition (not necessarily
drivable) and can be displayed outside uncovered.  The less race car
oriented the better.  AoA has access to cars within the marketing department
that are race oriented (S1, RS6, etc.) but are looking for other cars to
help tell the story of progression.

AoA will cover the cost to transport the cars to and from the event, and
will ship the cars in an enclosed carrier.  Alternatively, AoA is flexible
and will follow any shipping request the owner may have.  The cars need to
arrive in Napa Valley on August 24th and will be loaded out on August 27th.
A professional vehicle logistics company will handle the vehicles, place
them where needed and maintain them (wipe down regularly) upon arrival,
until departure.

The event will take place at the Carernos Inn
osinn/> ) and will involve 55 automotive and lifestyle journalists. If
someone is interested in supplying a vehicle please contact Sarah Toycen and
she will work out the details with the owner directly.
