    New toy in the stable

    Sorry, it's not a Mustang...

    Picked up an '01 Audi A6 Quattro 2.8 for a g-note, had some ignition issues that the owner didn't want to fix. Turns out it was a loose connector and for now it appears to be fixed. Smile Some minor damage to the front bumper cover you can see and it needs a good buffing and interior cleaning, but all indications are that it's a go.

    This will replace the '02 Hyundai Accent my wife drives on a daily basis, as it now has over 180K and she commutes on average 75 miles/day. The Audi has 105k so I figure we'll get a year or two out of it.

    I get to pimp the Hyundai to work instead of my '07 Chevy 2500. 40mpg sure beats 12mpg on the daily commute.....

        Good deal. I definitely need a new daily driver the sunfire fogs completely up and it turns to ice in the winter. One more year to pay on the mustang and then I start looking.

              It's my wife's '69 coupe. I have it up on stands to replace the fuel line and swap on a different set of rims.

              It'll be for sale soon.... Big Grin

              Killingworth is just south of Middletown, about 45 min east of Southbury via I-84E~RT9S
