2004 Audi A4 1.8T quattro

This car sold for $3,700 on June 29, 2021.

Back in January I took a look at a late B5 1.8T quattro Avant:

Audi continued the recipe for sales success in the B6 generation, largely carrying over the drivetrain more or less unchanged from late B5s to early B6s. However, soon into the run a nice change appeared; the sixth cog in the gearbox, which had previously been reserved for the 3.0 model. Under the hood still lay the AWM 170 horsepower version of the venerable motor, and like the B5 you had your choice of nice options like the Sport and Cold Weather packages. Today’s sedan has combined all of those things, and it’s a nice shade to boot! Today it’s a surprisingly hard package to find:

1995.5 Audi S6 Avant

This car sold for $17,672 on June 28, 2021.

Just recently I looked at a very nice example of the last of the C4 S6 Avants offered in the US – the ‘95.5 model in Aluminum Silver Metallic:

With “only” 132,000 miles on the odometer and looking pretty fresh, despite a few question marks I felt like it was a pretty reasonable asking price at $14k. Well, wouldn’t you know it? ANOTHER “low mileage” 1995.5 S6 Avant in Aluminum Silver Metallic has turned up for sale. What are the odds? What are the odds? Well, one in 32 according to this seller – but that was when they were new of course. Let’s take a look:

2001 BMW 740iL

Back in 2018 I took a look at a special package offered on the E38 – the Highline:

2001 BMW 740iL Highline

Unlike most BMW special editions, the Highline wasn’t full of M badges and didn’t offer greater performance; it was, effectively, just some really nice colors paired up for the exterior and interior. Today’s car is not one of those, but like the Highline it’s appearing here specifically because of the color – Criollo Metallic (446). Let’s take a look:

1965 Mercedes-Benz 600

Project cars are a very slippery slope. I’d say for every 100 projects that someone buys, maybe only a handful actually see the end of the line as “completed.” People love to get in over their heads in terms of what it will cost or the amount of skill it requires, with most of the time being a solid combination of both. Most of the time it is cheaper, easier, and much less painful just to buy the example you want totally original or already finished, then leave the projects for the professionals and retired folks with unlimited money.

However, there is one car that will bring anyone to it’s knees if you aren’t totally flush with cash and have a very specific set of knowledge: the Mercedes-Benz 600. I don’t need to go over the reasons why, but rather what it would take to get this 1965 up for sale in California back to its glory days. Also, this one has another little surprise.

2001 Porsche 911 Carrera

Well, here it is. Just to get the cat out of the bag, this is a 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe with an asking price of $58,000. Uh huh. Not a GT3, not some crazy paint-to-sample example with special wishes, just a Guards Red 996 with a little over 29,000 miles. I know we’ve seen some example of relatively common early 996 examples sell for big money lately, but this one might take the cake. Worth it? Eh.
