    Got the jones for a Audi TT MK1. Several on craigslist in my neck of the woods for about $5k for coupes and roadsters with 100k miles. After reading the Hooniverse article on first gen TTs and all the blogs I can’t see to much of a down side for this basically custom body on a VW Golf. Kinda like a modern Karmann Ghia.

      Was one of my poster cars when new. They put a wing on it after some high speed lift off oversteer accidents on the autobahn, but I would prefer to have no spoiler lip and drive under 100mph. Those are 20 years old by now? What year is it, where am I?

      I think a Quattro TT would be a great winter car, the only think I don’t like though is high doors, thick pillars and narrow windows make it feel like driving a submarine. A bit claustraphobic and hard to see out of. Maybe it’s just me, you’ll know if its for you when you sit in one.

      If you are such a madman to WANT an old Audi, the Mk1 to get would be the 3.2 quattro.
      Uses DSG transmission but that’s the only one offered for the V6.
      Wonder what these are going of these days???

    Making it a pickup truck does not turn your E30 into an F30. That only works with Fords. Try again.

      I have a feeling I’ve seen a BMW ute before, but I can’t think exactly where. Not Stuart Appleby’s E39 M5 ute either – haven’t seen that one.
      An E21 ute arguably wouldn’t carry anything to make the lack of tailgate a serious issue either, so I don’t mind this even if the B-C pillar could have been executed differently.

          Wow that E34 is pretty horrific! Looking at the positives, I suppose it would be fairly breeze-free for a dog riding in the back.

            Don’t be so sure, there could be all kind of crazy aerodynamic problems, like twisters which make dogs fly.

        That is a unique hauler,most likely the 460 ci- powerful old engine.

          Made by Centurion, the company that brought us four door Broncos, F150 crew cabs, and a few other mutations.
          Yes, a lot of these had 460 gas burners, but the 7.3 diesel was also a common powerplant.

        The barn doors make for a rather grand entrance/exit to the rear seat don’t you think? Just needs an organ flourish music track (like the Doctor in Cannonball Run) and a deployable Ren carpet!

          Ren carpet? Call them and ask for Stimpy…

    Bauer made a convertible of the 3-series.
    “Bauer” means “farmer”.
    This are the consequences.

    A month before our Kyrgyzstan trip, I am finally trying to figure out the car rental thing. In a bysentence, I ask if it’s possible to get our hands on a GAZ 24 for the week, out of curiosity. Here’s Sergey, slapping me with a fair bit of reality:
    “Hello, gas 24 is definitely not the car. For such a journey, a much more reliable and passable car is needed. For example off-road cars of Toyota brand.”

      GAZ24 for one day and Toyota for the rest of the week?

    As far as I know BMW is most closely associated with Ford (Mk VII diesel used BMW engines), therefore this should be a 3-Chero, not a 3-Camino. Although, BMW did use GM automatic transmissions for a while in the 1990s, so this one could go either way.
