'92 Audi 80 4 door sedan. Bought it this week. Great deal for one grand I'd say!
Due to Germany's traffic laws I have to wait 'till I'm 18 to get it registered to my name... 4 months to go. Now I have 2 cars to work on, ain't that great? Smile Needs some cleaning up but she's in decent shape. There's some minor rust damage on the wheel arches, nothing serious though.

Ben Looks like a great little driver. Main thing on a car is that the brakes work good and the horn honks. Hee! Hee!

I've painted the wheels, the grille, the lower grilles, the Audi emblem, "cleaned" the trunk lid, added some decals and replaced the battery.
I registered the car on Thursday, my 18th birthday.
Spent the whole weekend cruising around with my friends for hours.

My friends Dennis, Bernd and Chris. I did some sliding and power parking in an empty parking lot and they asked me where I had learned to drive so well and I just told them I've had lots of practise Laughing
Shortly after I took this pic I had to drive home because we've noticed a gas leak...


As soon as I got home from vocational school today I drove to my work place and repaired a broken fuel line.

Thanks Matt. I don't wanna kill myself by driving too fast.
Some douchebag from my vocational school class actually got a speeding ticket a few weeks ago. He was going about 160 kmh... speed limit was 100.

AWWWWWWWWWWWW to be 17 years old again Ben, man how time flies you are 18 now. Smile The best way to save your money is to put girls out of your head for at least another 10-20 years and you can save some money. Hee! Hee! Just kidding my friend. What good is money without pretty women'. Just be careful driving that beautiful car, I am proud of you Ben you are are a great young man and you have a good head on your shoulder. Sort of remeinds me of me about 20 years 30 years 40 years well to be exact about 52 years ago Hee! Hee! Man that is over 1/2 century ago. Smile Sort of brings tears to my eye's Crying or Very sad lol!

Well said Bobby I couldnt agree more..........I was only 18 yesterday! It feels like yesterday anyway. Where did all those those go???? Well done on your learning Ben, Thats the only way to learn is by doing it. Dont worry to get things wrong because thats the first step to learn how to do things right. Your a fine young man with a big future ahead of you.
