Honorable Mention Roundup

We get a lot of submissions from readers – something we greatly appreciate! But the reality is that we don’t get the chance to write up all of these cars, and some deserving examples slip through the cracks. For some time I’ve wanted to do a roundup of all the examples we missed out on, so today I’m doing just that. Here’s a group of neat cars that we didn’t get a chance to look at in more depth. Thanks again to all of our devoted readers who have sent in some of these suggestions – we really do love getting your suggestions, so keep sending them and tell us if this “Honorable Mention Roundup is a good idea!

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC on eBay

Year: 1984
Model: 500SEC
Engine: 5.0 liter V8
Transmission: 4-speed automatic
Mileage: 105,700 mi
Price: $12,500 Buy It Now

If yesterday’s “Euro Big Coupe” comparison wet your appetite for more German two-door love, this similar European-spec 500SEC certainly looks awesome. Velour interior, the correct wheels and the slimmed down/ unfettered engine combination sure looks nice!

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1995 Audi S6 on Albany Craigslist

Year: 1995
Model: S6
Engine: 2.2 liter turbocharged inline-5
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 191,200 mi
Price: $6,750

Claimed to be one of four sedans produced in Europa Blue Mica with Ecru leather, overall this S6 looks nice. Mileage is average and there are several upgrades along with the original Avus Speedline wheels. Our reader John sent this one in!

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1982 Porsche 924 on eBay

Year: 1982
Model: 924
Engine: 2.0 liter inline-4
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 96,885 mi
Price: $5,000 Buy It Now

If, as claimed in the ad, you were a senior in high school in the early 1980s and this was the car to have, your parents liked you a lot more than mine like me. I’ve always liked the clean look of the early 924s and this one overall looks like a decent driver, especially with Weissach Edition ATS wheels with black accents.

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1988 BMW M6 on eBay

Year: 1988
Model: M6
Engine: 3.5 liter inline-6
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 135,000 mi
Price: $25,000 Buy It Now

The asking price of $25,000 seems a tad optimistic to me given just the visible and poorly represented damage and cheesy looking mods. But with a claimed clean bill of health, some stellar HRE 3-piece wheels and a Dinan suspension, this could be a great driver in the making – just be ready to invest some more.

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1989 Porsche 944S2 on Seattle Craigslist

Year: 1989
Model: 944S2
Engine: 3.0 liter inline-4
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 60,000 mi (Engine)
Price: $9,500

Our reader Roy sent in this overall nice looking 944S2. A compelling alternative to the more expensive late-run Turbo models, the S2 looks quite similar and has a reputation for being a better all-arounder. With a lot of maintenance claimed and in what appears to be very good condition, it looks like it is priced well in the market.

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1991 Audi 200 20V quattro on Ventura Craigslist

Year: 1991
Model: 200 20V quattro
Engine: 2.2 liter turbocharged inline-5
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 76,000 mi
Price: $4,300

Our reader Brad sent in this nice looking Stone Grey Metallic 1991 Audi 200 20V quattro. Cleverly hidden under the search term “Audi stick shift”, with only a reported 76,000 miles on the clock and with sport seats, these 200s rarely come to market in this condition. With that in mind, if it checked out it’s quite well priced all things considered, but there is precious little information and the photos aren’t hugely detailed.

Which deserved more attention from us?

  1. The 200 Quattro – even with bad pictures. That’s the lowest mileage example I’ve seen in years.

  2. I’m with RPM, 200 20V Quattro! It’s hard to believe those miles are real. Those seats and that dashboard are some of my favorites.

  3. I like the idea of the roundup. I guess my vote goes to the 200tq also. An engine photo from the seller would have been nice. Wonder if it is being sold by a younger flipper that installed the aftermarket radio?

  4. Love the round up.
