I have one of the last couple S-6's brought in (late 95).  It's a 
quattro with a 20 valve turbo 5 cyl.  Kind of rare.  There were only 
ever a couple thousand brought in over 4 years.  Not a rally car (too 
big, too heavy) but a hoot to drive.  The WRX feels very flimsy by 
comparison.  Fast though.

I'd like to drive one.

I've had 2 Audi's myself, and my family have owned another half dozen 
over the years.  I like them.

Well, Tim (the guy who has the school) was talking about it.

You can check http://www.teamoneil.com/ to see.  I think the Maine 
forest rally is going to happen this summer.  I'll try to catch that, 
and I go to the Mt. Washington Hillclimb every year.
