Your Cars: 

  • 1990 Audi Coupe Quattro: 4.2 V8 swap, B5 S4 6-speed, RS2 front end, S2 rear bumper, S2 black interior trim, 2B coilovers, 3" stainless exhaust, 5-lug conversion, RS4 wheels, Porsche brakes, etc. Favorite car I've ever owned.
  • 1990 Audi Coupe Quattro (AKA "Quattromog"): 6.5" lift, off-road tires, custom front control arms (+1"), aluminum skid plates, stainless tube bumper, winch, 1.8T + tiptronic (auto) swap. It may well be the dumbest car ever built, and I love it.
  • 2005 Audi S4, 6MT: Bone-stock daily beater.
  • 2011 Audi A4 Avant: The ski wagon.

An Interesting Car-Related Fact About You: Neither of my parents are car people, but at the age of 14 I somehow convinced them to let me buy my first car. It was a 1969 VW Bug which I paid $150 for and planned to build into a dune buggy in their garage. By the time I turned 15 I had already bought two more Bugs and still had no idea what I was doing. It's been downhill every since.
