Ode To The Avant: '95 2.8 Quattro

Just look at that thing. Sitting out there in the driveway all non chalant, waiting to take the family into town for errands. Maybe it's not errand time though, maybe it's just you and the dog going up to the cabin for a coupe nights. Or maybe it's just you, an I-pod and a tape adapter going for an evening cruise.

A Day With The 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe 3.6 AWD & 2.0T MANUAL

In as few words as possible (only kidding, this one should run long), I'm going to try to narrow down the origin… » 8/12/14 2:40pm 8/12/14 2:40pm

NPoCP?- 2001 Audi S8

Looking through the S8 listings provided in the Ebay Challenge from today, I was rather dismayed to find this, a 2001 Audi S8 for $8000. Now of course, you might be thinking, "Aha, but it probably has a million and one miles, and therefor will never run again!" Nope. 68k miles. On the downside, it is an automatic, and… » 8/11/14 11:13am 8/11/14 11:13am
