Find(s) of the Day: A Collection of 8 DKWs

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="71768"] words: Bill, photos: Craigslist Well this is something new. First of all, I can't remember when I've actually featured a FOTD from Craigslist (remember when we could find all the cool stuff there?) and secondly, a collection of 8 DKWs for sale? Here's the ad: I lost my lease and need to sell all these DKW's. The past owner lost some engine blocks. There are only 3 or 4 blocks. I have all the heads and carbs, trannys etc. There are 8 cars....

Find of the Day: 2003 Audi S8

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="71120"] words: Bill, photos: Tom Mullane Ok...I can already hear people saying Why are you featuring a 19 year old S8 with 256,000 miles?!? It's not even a manual transmission swap! I will counter that by saying yes, this is an older Audi with over a quarter million miles but I have two reasons. First, look at that interior- that burgundy interior is one of the best Audi has done. The second? The owner, Tom. Tom is, what you could say, meticulo...

Find of the Day: 2002 Audi S6 Avant 6-Speed Manual

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70956"] words: Bill, photos: MrJohnson via cars&bids If nothing else, this is a beautiful C5 S6 Avant but wait til you see the surprise inside which makes it even more beautiful: it's a 6-speed manual swap.

Find of the Day: 2021 Nogaro Blue Audi RS 7

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70747"] words: Bil, photos: Manheim Imports Remember when the news of the RS 6 Avant finally coming to the States broke and everyone was ecstatic and then news came out that Audi of America was bringing over just 25 Nogaro Blue RS 6 Avant RS Tribute editions? Heads exploded. Those 25 Tributes were snatched up and everyone was envious. Meanwhile the RS 6's stablemate, the C8 RS 7, while equally a fantastic vehicle with very similar specs, was lar...

Find of the Day: 2019 Audi A7 Audizine ProjectGREY7

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70579"] words: Bill, photos: Gene Pascua It's not every day when I can feature an Audi that was written up in quattro Magazine as our Find of the Day.

Find of the Day: 1986 Zermatt Silver Audi 4000 CS quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70443"] words: Bill, photos: GermanCarLover via cars & bids Now I know I've said this before...the Pacific Northwest must be a time warp where old(er) German cars stay in pristine condition and I mean pristine. From rust-free exteriors to crack-free dashboards, most of the 80s/90s German cars coming out of the PNW look brand new. This 1986 Audi 4000 CS quattro is a prime example. Most 4000s were driven hard and put away wet where time and rus...

Find of the Day: 2021 Audi exclusive Velvet Purple Pearl TT RS

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70428"] words: Bill, photos: Adam Cooney Normally, I don't post brand new or very new cars as a Find of the Day unless it's unique or in an eye-catching color; I think Velvet Purple classifies as an eye-catching color.

Find of the Day: 2008 Audi R8 6-Speed Manual

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70391"] words: Bill, photos: Nate Morley The Audi R8. These days when you mention 'Audi R8', people immediately think V10 but back in the mid-2000s, it meant a much anticipated Audi supercar...with a V8. A lot of people scoff at the R8 V8 but the R8 was a game changer. Heck, even Tony Stark drove one. Combine that sonorous 4.2 V8 with the snick-snick of a manual and you have perfection. This Phantom Black beauty has all those and then some. Her...

Find of the Day: 2004 Nogaro Blue Audi S4 Avant 6-speed

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70111"] words: Bill, photos: Dr_EuroCar via Cars&Bids Funny how I mentioned the other day how I wished our Find of the Day was a B6 Nogaro Blue S4 Avant with a manual transmission and then boom, this shows up.

Find of the Day: 2004 Nogaro Blue Audi S4

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70018"] words: Bill, photos: The Eclectic Garage When the B6 S4 burst onto the scene, it was the first time a V8 was stuffed into the B-chassis. Enthusiasts were enamored with the throaty sounds coming out of the dual exhaust. We were fortunate enough to get a sedan, a wagon (Avant), and a convertible version. The 4.2 V8 was carried over to the B7 generation but then, it was gone. This one is a B6 S4 sedan in what some people would say is the ul...

Find of the Day: 2003 Highland Green Audi allroad

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="69364"] words: Bill, photos: pin maniac via Bring A Trailer For the longest time, the only allroad in the States was the C5 A6 allroad. It was a time when Audi had plenty of Avant offerings such as the S4 Avant, A4 Avant, A6 Avant. Then these started to disappear with the only Avant offered for awhile being the B8.5 A4 allroad. Then the C8 RS 6 Avant showed up as well as its less powerful sister, the A6 allroad. But if you look around, you will...

Find of the Day: 2007 Audi RS 4

  [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="69314"] words: Bill, photos: Zack Rossiter There's noting quite like the gnarly snarl of an Audi 4.2 V8 and combined with a manual, it's a dream. We in the States didn't get the B5 RS 4 so when the B7 showed up, it was well received. Most (ok...maybe some including me) would have preferred the Avant but little did we know that this would be the only RS 4 to be imported to the States, We longingly looked across the pond as enthusiasts rompe...

Find of the Day: 2003 Audi S6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="68956"] words: Bill, photos: Chris Mangold What is it about wagons that have gripped enthusiasts but not the general auto-buying population? Perhaps it's due to  very lackluster wagons out there and the stigma of a mom-bus that soured prospective buyers but some companies fought back including Audi. Stuffing V8s into wagons has been around for years but Audi seem to have hit the sweet spot with the C5 S6 Avant. That fabulous 4.2 growl and ta...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="68638"] words: Bill, photos: craigslist.com There are a myriad of websites I comb for Finds of the Day but one that I often overlook is one of the OGs...craigslist.com. In fact, I didn't find this; a friend did. Here we have an increasingly rare specimen...a manual S4 Avant. Located in sunny LA, it looks as stock as can be and has hopefully never seen salt.

Rarely do you find an older vehicle that hasn't seen the light of day for years in good shape but there are always exceptions to the rule. Back in the near past (the Bad Days), there were acres of brand new Audi and Volkswagen TDIs fresh off the bo...
