Default Possible ‘87 Audi restoration

So will post when I get more details, but came across an ad in the newspaper about a potential very good deal for a ‘learn to wrench’ car. It’s an 87 Audi Quattro 5000 CS Turbo. Called the folks to inquire about it, and they said it had some issue, like leaking PS fluid, hand brake doesn’t work, etc. so they’re going to email me with all the stuff wrong with it, and I’ll decide based on that. Still in running condition, and is DD’d, with 31xxxx on the clock. The best part is they want it for $150. Will post again to see what you guys think, but could be a good car.

Tell them you'll give them $50 if they deliver it. Cut the body into pieces small enough to take in whatever vehicle you own and get $$ for it at the scrap yard. Pull aluminum parts and keep them separate as they bring more money. Wiring can all go in boxes. Sell the whole thing as scrap. These cars were toilets, even when they were new.

Scrap prices are up. If it’s actually running I’d drive strait to the scrap yard and drive it across the scale. You might not get as much as parting it out and cutting it up but you’ll have almost no time invested. I’ve done this 2x now. Both cars would only run for short distances before shutting off or over heating. It’s been my experience that they give you better than scrap if it’s still running. Do you have a local u pull it type of yard close? If so they pay better if it runs also.

ha, there's going to be 150 more issues than that

I mean $150 is a fair price in any condition as you can get more than that to just scrap the whole vehicle. . . . .which makes me think they have no title because otherwise they'd scrap it.

but anyway, it will be a beater of all beaters if you want a junker to toy with
