Built to Last
It's a relief to know that there are those in the younger car crowd that treat cars with the respect they deserve.
Chris and his Audi 90 are the perfect example of a combination that will stand the test of time.
I'll be honest, I had no idea what this car was before I met Chris. European cars aren't my speciality, and an Audi 90 meant nothing to me. However, after seeing this car a part of me fell in love with it.
Chris and his father actually received this car for free. Chris's father owns an auto shop, and the previous owner of this Audi couldn't get it to run, and couldn't afford to keep it, so it became their project car. Pretty much a care lovers dream.
This Audi was in no where near the same condition as you see it today. It took Chris and his father 9 months to get this thing in running and attractive condition. I'd definitely say it was a good time investment!
If there's one thing I love about this car it's the rally look it gives off. I'm biased toward anything rally, but this Audi works its mudflaps and suspension right. This is the opposite of what i think when I hear 'Audi', but that's the great thing about this car.
Chris says that he'll never get rid of this car, and that he loves it for how unique it is. I think that's amazing. I've definitely never seen one around town, and the small changes him and his father have made to the car have made it unique.
If you haven't figured it out yet, Chris is an Audi guy. He's definitely committed to the company, and I think that will allow this car to always keep its purpose. Even thought it may not look like a modern Audi, this 90 will always hold its original style.
I have no doubt this car is Chris's dream. How much work he has put into it, how well it's kept, and how much it's loved gives no questions to this fact. Chris has some future ideas bouncing around, but I know he'll make sure this car keeps running.
I'd like to thank Chris for his time, and for battling the constant reschedules we had to make due to mother nature! It was definitely a great car to see, and I can't wait to see how it evolves.
