Junkyard Find: 1994 Audi 100 Station Wagon

We examined part of the endgame of the Audi 5000 debacle in the United States with a junked 1990 Audi 100 Quattro sedan in Denver. Having banished the toxic Audi 5000 name, Audi called these cars Audi 100s until everyone was thoroughly confused, then renamed it the A6, which they still use today.

Here’s a sort of unusual example I saw at a Denver yard a month ago: the final year of the Audi 100 name in the United States, and it’s a wagon.

234,126 miles! Pretty impressive, I’d say.

We can assume that approximately 228,000 of those miles were clocked by a meticulous first owner, who took care of every single maintenance item as it became due and fixed small problems as they arose. Then the person who applied this tasteful decal took ownership, and within a year the car was here.

Delmarva Public Radio is in Maryland, as are the breweries and coffee shop represented by these stickers, so we might guess that the car’s final owner bought it in Maryland and then moved to Denver (where cannabis is legal and so cheap that you can find it in junked Suzuki Swifts).

From there, it didn’t take long before something on the Audi broke that cost more to fix than a few boxes of Snoop Dogg’s Peanut Butter Gems, and that was that.

The prices you get for scrap cars have crashed (down to $20-$50 a ton in most parts of the United States), and so the next stop was my local self-serve wrecking yard, which will sell few parts from this oddball machine.

Vorsprung durch Technik!
