1997 GTE 6a on ebay

Thanks for that, Jim (I have an appointment with the optician next week). It appears to have been well maintained until recently when it changed hands. It has travelled a long way from Kent to Yorkshire. I am now guessing it will break my cash limit. I agree with your observations on the paint, Pete...

1997 GTE 6a on ebay

At around 1pm, I was able to look directly at the sun which was a vivid orange globe! (definitely not recommended on a normal day)

Vorsprung Durch Tecnic

Apparently, Audi TT TDi 1900cc driven by Brian Jukes (according to the programme). Apparently it was all too much for him as no results were posted for this car or driver.

I know it is some time ago (but my situation was the same) I was one of 'Maggies Millions' a middle manager in engineering in the early eighties. I changed career direction many times before...

2 Unknown? Coupe's discovered

I believe there is a bloke in Australia building coupe new coupe chassis (we've all seen and admired the "mermar74" thread). If they were available, would that facilitate an acceptable rebuild? (Just out of curiosity)
