    Found this Audi last week while digging through a pile of merchandise in an antique store. It is maked "Made in US Zone Germany". I saw one a couple years ago at a store I work at and also one on Ebay a year or two ago. I love the lines on this old hot rod. It is missing "something" just behind the engine cover. There is a small round hole where it attaches. I think it was a stabilizer/wing of some sort. I just don't remember what it is. I think the rest of the car is there. Thanks for any replies. It will help me in my search.
