So a few weeks ago Hybrid_Hatch asks me if I’m interested in a 1991 CQ, after finding out what 1991 CQ I sent the owner a txt and put a check in the mail!
Now I am in UT for pickup and to, finally, meet the locals, hopefully the drive back is not too snowy since I am supposed to be in Vail around 4pm and home for the kids bedtime. Nothing worse than being stuck in snow traffic with Quattro!
Just drove the urQ and Daves S2, both are impressive.
Plans for this car are much the same as with my 1990: SEMS, Holset, E85, IC, drive to work/track/etc and seat 5.

Yes! Now that the weather is more tolerable all of us Denver area <B5 people need to meet up!
The collection may very well end up being one CQ in the end. As much as having two is appealing, I barely have room for one at the moment. Also, the mod fund has been depleted ;D
I ended up getting home around 9pm. Traffic was really a killer, I may have been better off on HWY 40.
The car performed great; as much as we put down the 7a it really does a job and was able to maintain a reasonable speed over Vail and Eisenhower passes. I really would have liked to have some boost when an S5 ripped past me on the way up to 'Evahboost'; oh well, not the greatest area to test the speed traps.
