"You damn well better think about it!"

Post by KSN on Thu Mar 08, 2012 6:31 pm

Just checking in on the forums as a new member to say hello!

So here's my brief story on how I became an Audi A8 owner:

4 Months ago, I received a phone call from a family member asking if I wanted their 1997 A8... now one might think 'sloppy seconds' (?); but actually this A8, the first A8's ever imported to the United States, had been garaged 7 years of the last 14 years of the vehicles life. So of course I jumped on the opportunity!

Then I had the pleasure, after picking it up, to take it on a 6437KM trip in my A8 from the city of Santa Barbara, California up to Orcas Island, Washington, and then back to Phoenix, Arizona USA.

Simply put... by the time I parked the car in Phoenix, Arizona, I had fallen completely in love with the car, the brand, and the "Audi" Experience so to speak... So much so, that I purchased a vanity plate: 1st A8

So here I am...

And while I have come to love 'everything' Audi (OMG R18 Ultra e-tron TDI FTW!!) My heart is with the A8; and my future plans are to maintain and preserve the almost 'pristine' condition of my current 1997 A8 Quattro, as well as to locate a suitable model 2001 - 2006 Audi S8 to mode and play with to my hearts content.

Also in addition to being a new member of A8OC, I am also a member of Audi Club North America, and the Sports Car Club of America - Arizona Region (SCCA - AZ is a USA national club racing organization in the US)

Well that's a little about myself... I look forward to getting to know all of you, and also learn which other members are also representing A8OC in the USA?

Welcome KSN.

I'm afraid this forum and OC has had a few hiccups over the years and very rarely gets visited Neutral

For a bit more life, visit the A8Parts forum, this is were we mainly hang out now Very Happy
There is a link to the forum when you first go on to the home page of this site.

Nice story by the way and we always like to see pictures Cool
