Very nice indeed. Not looked at them in quite a while after the last one I saw for sale down here went for astronomical money.

Looked rougher than that one at a glance too.

My brother had a couple of these way back when I rated them HIGHLY as a really nice car to drive as well as being pretty solid old things.  They were the only ones I've ever seen in person, you literally never see the 80 (were these also 90 and 100 in this body shape?).

Still about half an hour from home, it drives really well, cable operated clutch is quite stiff but other than that it's been good. b498df3541af17d9b0bc546689344e52.jpg

The ends of the sills and inner arches weren't great but having spent the morning welding in new metal it's looking much better.

I think that's the majority of the welding done for the mot, there's a few small bits that could be doing with welding including the passenger front door and drives A-pillar.

Best Audi i.e. an Audi from a time when they were rare and exclusive and seen by some as the less quirky German version of Saab. I approve!

I can't believe how well it drives, it's recently had new shocks, springs and bushes all round so handles quite nicely but most surprisingly it's quite fast and the fuel economy seems reasonable.

90 yes- effectively a 80 with an angry pigeon under the bonnet

100 no- biggerer than a 80

Mot was booked for this morning but I ended up having to cancel because the brake lights were no longer working and I couldn't get a brake light switch until tomorrow. I decided to do a bit more welding and removed the black paint from the Audi badge.

After moving the car back outside they brake lights started working again but by then I'd missed the mot.

I bought a set of wheels previously fitted to a Granada for the W123 but need spacers and longer bolts to fit them. I think they will look quite good.

Nice one! I have been lusting after another B2 Sport for ages now.

Swapped a Mk 2 Capri 2.0 Ghia for a very early B2 Sport (log booked as a GT/E) off a guy in Peterhead. Never did get it on the road. Later on had the next model sport C847HOE in Tornado Pink which was a great car.

The styling on the B2 is so simple and classy!

The wheels on that 505 look... I was going to say wrong, but I think 'odd' would be more accurate.    They seem too small for the rest of it somehow.      Base spec?

Loving the Audi. What engine is it in these? Four or five pot?

Really do love these, back from when Audi's were a really unusual car to see over here in any great numbers, and were easily comparable to the likes of Saab or Volvo...just a different design approach.

Actually, how do they compare to a Merc? Much more modern design, but probably near enough as well designed and screwed together.

Sadly a 70s/80s Volvo or Mercedes has so far eluded me...I really do need to fix that.

Done many a mile in a W123, just never owned one...

It's a 4 pot 1.8 with a Weber carb, it goes quite well, I was pleasantly surprised with the power.

Compared with the W123, the Audi feels quite sporty, the seats and suspension are firm and it handles well, the Mercedes is a big lazy barge, it floats over speed bumps, suspension is quite soft. It's great for cruising but still picks up speed when you need it to.
