Post by: Spicoli on August 20, 2005, 10:29:55 AM
I still have the Miata... it is a racecar... and I dont' really want to advertise that I have a racecar.

I still have the mk4, but who knows.... this new ride is so cool I don't know what will come of my mk4.

I am hoping I can make the GTG, I am still not sure.  Depends on the GF and all my friends are riding in the Moon light Classic tonight so I would like to join them.  The GF is a little mad at me for spending money on this car.

I will tell you: It is German. It is AWD. It is a wagon.  


I will post on here when I get home tonight to let people know if I can make it or not tonight (around 6:30pm when I get home from work).

I'd say its some sort of Audi avant, quattro.

I dont recall MB, or BMW making wagons with AWD.

I'm sitting there talking about potential mods to the Passat and outta nowhere, here he comes.  Everyone's head turns...it was monumental.

Considering there was an S8, my Passat and a couple other tastefully modded dubs, jacks new ride blew us all out of the water.

He said it was German, AWD, and a Wagon, so it is not a Volvo.  Can a T-REG be considered a Wagon?  Perhaps it starts with an RS?

Its gotta be a 3.6L VR6 Passat wagon, but I was told that those wont hit the shores until March iirc.
Title: With all these new cars coming out....
Post by: 92UrS4 on August 22, 2005, 08:24:41 AM
I guess if you are a real nut you COULD say it is a Passat.  The B6 wagon wont be here til Feb I think.

This might help, make a list of all things VW has made that are AWD, then from that list whittle it down to things that are wagons. You shouldn't be left with much ;)
Title: With all these new cars coming out....
Post by: PasSoup on August 22, 2005, 08:26:51 AM
Dahlback Sharon, or perhaps we need a better definition of "wagen".  is that anything with a lift gate, or does is require 4 doors and a lift gate?

Im assuming that its only VW, and not Audi.

In that case its either a V6 4motion or a W8 4motion.  Those are the only Passats that are out that have AWD.  The B6 2.0T's afaik, are not coming to the states with AWD for quite some time.

Umm, really making my brain work hard so early in the morning on this glumy Monday.   :x

Post by: PasSoup on August 22, 2005, 08:45:23 AM
VW Quantum Synchro
Maybe a T-REG, only if it were the V-10 TDI
W8 Variant, but this would not be cooler than an Audi RS#
R32, sort of a wagon, but is it really that cool.
PES/G2 Variant.
2.7T swap Variant.


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh,  just let us know.

Hahahha, it is one of the vehicles you listed and it is not an R32 or any sort of swap or supercharger.

So the Quantum or the T-REG, and it would have to be a really Quantum, but the 2.2l 115 Hp engine wouldn't  burn all four wheels.  The question would be what version of the T-REG, and if it is the V-10, how in the hell did he get it.  I am going to go shoot myself now.

Post by: 92UrS4 on August 22, 2005, 09:41:27 AM
Well you'be narrowed it down...so base don what you qoted me as saying...what COULD you say is a Passat, a Quantum or a TREG?


Muahhahahha, where the hell is jack with some more pics!
Title: With all these new cars coming out....
Post by: PasSoup on August 22, 2005, 09:45:14 AM
How can a Quantum be cooler than a S8?  Although the Synchro Wagons are rare. i.e <3000 made in the U.S.

Well the Quantom is a Passat, essentially.  The "Passat" had many names in the past.  So, we shall see, because I give up.
Title: With all these new cars coming out....
Post by: gragravar on August 22, 2005, 10:42:30 AM
still not sure I see a quantum being cooler than an S8.  hmmm.  

I am stumped.  did the factory ever do a one-off W12 phaeton in a wagon?  Other than that, I need some Pics!
Title: With all these new cars coming out....
Post by: 92UrS4 on August 22, 2005, 10:56:29 AM
You guys are right on it being the predecessor to the modern day Passat, but I think what needs to be looked at here is the lightheartedness of the thread and seeing Jack come screaming through a parking lot in this thing is priceless. :)

I'll have to see it.

Given the initial clues though, I still had something like this on my mind:

(http://www.kn.p-net.pl/hobby/porsche/galeria/tuning/gemballa_cayenne/gemballa_cayenne_12.jpg)

a gemballa tuned cayenne.  

it is german, 4wd, a wagon (kind of) and probably way more crowd drawing than an S8.

oh well.  Can't wait to see some pics.
Title: With all these new cars coming out....
Post by: Scuba2001 on August 22, 2005, 11:10:28 AM
I'd pimp a Cayenne like that any day.  I've always liked how nicely the T-reg's and Cayenne's look when modded.

Still waiting for pics.

I am laughing so hard.   I am still at work and haven't gotten home to take photos of the car yet.  It is a Quantum Syncro.  

The thread was all about being funny and just joking around... and since everyone (including vortex) got so curious it just amplified the humor.  I am at work and can barely hold my shitass grin back.

The car is in really good condition for an '86, it is silver wagon, etc... but it is still just a POS daily driver.  I have very little invested in this car.  I will put a little into it and fix it up a little and hopefully make a little money on it (if I ever sell it).  I "needed" a daily driver where i didn't care/worry about it and something I can put my bikes into easily and then the 4WD helps with winter because I don't have to buy as nice of tires for winter and don't beat up my mk4 (plus with that hp it can be a bit to drive when it is super slipperly).

The whole S8 thing was just a joke.  It wasn't saying it was really a better car, more just playing up the non-necessary hype.  

Student loan:  It pays for school, it pays for insurance... but the rest of my money comes from not eating out much, not drinking, not smoking and I get payed decently even though it is a bike shop.

I thought you bought some hot new car (T-reg, A4 Avant, etc.), making you the owner of two cars I'm really jealous of.

I couldn't even get a student loan when I was school (worked my ass off) while some of my classmates got huge loans and used it pay for their cars while their folks still supported them.  The irony is that I graduated debt-free and able to put a down payment on a new condo.

Congrats on your "beater", sounds like a fun project.  Good money saving move too since you could tell your insurance that it's your primary vehicle.

I remember my first car which was a real beater.  The crazy stuff I did in the Canadian winters (it was RWD), and getting back at double parkers by wedging my boat next to them -- it was a hoot.

Well I got a decent amount of money behind me when I was young.  when I was 19 I bought a condo for cheap in Ken Caryl... then the area boomed a year later and sold it at the peak of that boom.  I ended up making a good amount of money on it in a couple years time.  I actually made my morgage, electric, Excel, and internet bills for the time there plus some.  So I pretty much lived for there for free... now my condo is for sale again (well 3 months ago it was) for the amount I sold it...

As far as the student loans...  well I just recently decided to pay for school with them instead of out of pocket so I would have more play money (for my car and so I can save to get a house sometime in the next year).  Since I can get all my school payed for with subsided loans, it is so worth it.  No interest until I finish school and when I am done I won't have that big of a loan to pay so I might be able to pay it off within a year or less.

As far as the hot car... well that was part of the trickery.
