A perfect day at Larz Anderson! πŸ‘Œ Not a huge Classic Audi representation but there were a few and that's all that matters!

As I previously mentioned, to keep our "Concours" Greta in perfect shape, I have some repairs to start beginning tomorrow. Most of the work will be to things you can't see, but you know me - everything needs to be perfect inside and out!

A reminder that Larz Anderson German Car Day is tomorrow! Any car show day is a good day, but it will be even better because my dad will also be there! In retrospect, I should have given him an Audi-free day for a change (which he hasn't had in 5 years)... Maybe next year. πŸ’†

This is also the only show the Greta is doing this year - Monday morning I'm beginning some further repairs and she'll be out of service again for the remainder of the summer - I always have projects going on but they tend to be more tedious and detailed on this car than the rest!

With the wagon down for the count, the sedans are enjoying actual road time - which is perfect because Edelweiss hasn't seen much daylight recently, and I love being surrounded by blue interior. I also didn't have to hit the dashboard to get the gauges to work, or fiddle with anything under the hood to go above speeds higher than 40. Yes - these are the "good" T44 days. 😌

163,755 is not impressive mileage for a Type 44, but unfortunately Wendell won't see any more road time. The transmission has been slipping lately and today he flat-out refused to start - and I won't put anymore time and money into what was mostly an end-of-life vehicle to begin with. That being said - we've had a lot of fun road trips and racked up nearly 10,500 miles in less than 10 months.

You may think this is relatively uncharacteristic of me, but don't worry. T44Brian always has something up his sleeve - you'll just have to wait and see. ⏲️ #Audi100 #Audi #Audiusa #type44 #typ44 #t44 #c3 #audic3 #fivecylinder #inline5 #audi200 #audi5000 #vw #oldaudi #classicaudi #vintageaudi #audiclassic #wagonwednesday #fourrings #audiwagon #quattro #audilove #audiofamerica #stationwagon #80scars #audiavant #campallroad #avant #t44brian

If Ingolstadt needs a new museum piece, I accept cash or check... πŸ’°

Just kidding - money and persuasion don't work on me, so you'll be prying 12 sets of keys out of my cold, dead hands. πŸ’€

20 miles away from hitting 59K, but it won't be for at least another couple weeks! A reminder for next Sunday that Greta (100E) will be headed up to Boston for Larz Anderson German Car Day - she needs a lot of small things beforehand (and I've been slacking) so excuse the possible lack of content this week while I make some repairs... πŸ™

Another #eeurofest in the books! If you missed Greis today, he's going to FCP Euro's Cars & Coffee tomorrow which starts at 9AM at their HQ in Milford, CT. I know I said Edelweiss would make the event, but Greis is already out of the garage and prepped for show-mode (more truthfully - I'm exhausted 😴). Another early day awaits!

This is a quick reminder that eEurofest is tomorrow - it's going to be a really great day and I hope to see some of you there!

As with most shows I tend to stay close to my cars, but I also try and relax a bit and get away from the detail spray every so often... πŸ˜‘ In the event you want to chat and I'm not glued to Greis - just send me a message and I'll gladly head on over to answer all your questions.

You'd think by now I'd be more efficient when it comes to detailing, but those Tuesday evening cleanups usually continue into the next morning... πŸŒ„ I will say that at least for the engine bays, Griot's Engine Bay Dressing cuts the amount of time I spend under the hood - it repels most of the dust from normal driving and anything that does stick requires nothing more than a simple hose-down. If you swipe, you'll see an example of the finish it leaves - granted, it's freshly applied in the photo here but will dry to an even satin sheen.

The weather is so nice today that it would be wrong not to take the cars out for a spin - Greis goes first though - something about sitting in black leather around noon doesn't add up for me...πŸ”₯ #Audi100 #Audi #Audiusa #type44 #typ44 #t44 #c3 #audic3 #fivecylinder #inline5 #audi200 #audi5000 #vw #oldaudi #classicaudi #vintageaudi #audiclassic #vintagecar #griotsgarage #audiclub #quattro #germancar #cardetailing #90scars #80scars #t44brian #audiofamerica #showcar #titaniumgrey

Some updates to start the week: πŸ“°

1. I'm writing new articles for t44brian.com and adding a section to view old brochures and other documents. Content will trickle down slowly but should be 100% added by July 1.
2. Mark's Cruise Night is cancelled tonight due to weather, so we're looking ahead to eEurofest Saturday and FCP Euro Cars & Coffee Sunday.
3. Lloyd Mats responded to my inquiry and is doing a special order set of Dark Blue (310) mats that uses the lighter blue binding of G. blue (340). They should be here next week so fingers crossed!

And right now, I'm still working on wrapping those dash wires and redoing some foam that's crumbled under the dash of the 100E. I have more tape than patience at this point but we're getting there. 😬

How far has Edelweiss traveled since the UMass show in April? An astounding 3.7 miles... 🐒 With that in mind, If Mark's Classic Cruise is on for Monday (East Granby) we might go, and FCP Euro (at their HQ in Milford) is hosting a Cars and Coffee on the 10th - which again, if the weather holds, we'll be there.

The calendar on my website has been cleaned up with remaining (confirmed) events for the season and I'll update as necessary!

If you ever see an Audi 100 and don't know if it's my car - just look for the carpet lines πŸ˜‰. I bought new sets of Ultimats for all three show cars- because I'd like to prevent further wear on the originals. And again, I went with @lloydmats because the last two sets fit perfectly!

A little more artistic than it usually gets around here, but I spent the morning trying to match the font Audi used for their short lived "Take Control" campaign for a project and needed a creative break. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ #Audi100 #Audi #Audiusa #type44 #typ44 #t44 #c3 #audic3 #fivecylinder #inline5 #audi200 #audi5000 #vw #oldaudi #classicaudi #vintageaudi #audiclassic #vintagecar #griotsgarage #audiclub #quattro #germancar #titaniumgrey #90scars #80scars #t44brian #audiofamerica #showcar #retro

A good day to see if that can of R12 made a marked improvement - We're at 41 degrees from the vents which is exactly where we want to be! ❄️ In other news, I'm really looking forward to our next event: eEuroFest 2018! Not only is Lime Rock an awesome venue, the drive down is really relaxed - perfect for the average Audi 100... πŸ˜… eEurofest has a lot to offer and isn't just a car show, so for all the details head on over to @eeuroparts and check it out! πŸ‘

The roads of Cape Cod are more interesting from the seat of an old Audi - though I'm beginning to irritate my wife with all my stops for photo opportunities - oh well, this is what she signed up for... πŸ’β€β™‚οΈ #Audi100 #Audi #Audiusa #type44 #typ44 #t44 #c3 #audic3 #fivecylinder #inline5 #audi200 #audi5000 #vw #oldaudi #classicaudi #vintageaudi #audiclassic #wagonwednesday #fourrings #audiwagon #quattro #audilove #audiofamerica #stationwagon #80scars #audiavant #campallroad #avant #t44brian

A little late for #wagonwednesday βŒ› but Wendell got a bath and now we're just tensioning our ever troublesome alternator belt before we head out to the Cape tomorrow! Also notice his collection of new decals that we bought at Carlisle - might as well have some fun with this car since we're so strict with the others! 😬
