I’ve had many impure thoughts about committing a mortal sin but lately, these forbidden thoughts have drifted. To Europe specifically. I am a closet Audi fan but out of all of the nearly 40 cars I have owned, I’ve never been brave enough to buy one. The reasons are many, including the insane maintenance that is required to keep it running and the fact that even if you spend tens of thousands of dollars maintaining your pristine German automobile, it will still likely end up on the back of a tow truck at a very inconvenient time.
This morning during my ritualistic surfing of Bring-a-Trailer, I came across this amazing 2006 Audi S4 Avant with a 6-speed stick shift. If you ever take the time to notice Audi’s while sitting in traffic, you’ll likely find they are ALL black, white, silver or red. Those wacky Germans really know how to party. I can’t remember ever seeing one in this color that is a mixture of Tweetie Bird and a school bus and somehow, it works on this beautiful wagon.
It’s going to need some maintenance and by some, I mean a lot of maintenance and I still don’t care. Does anyone have about $20K they can lend me?
