Curbside Classic Capsule: 1984 Audi 80 CL – Ready for Loading

On Friday afternoon, while visiting my mom, I left for a run around the neighborhood (well, a walk, to be honest). I took a route that led me towards this German Classic and it seems its working days are not quite over.


From the front, it looks good — it has all of its trim, it even has a modern set of wipers and aftermarket wheels (the jury is out concerning those). But go round the back…

Whoa! He’s not messing about, is he? This 1984 Audi 80 is littered with all types of racks. Very useful should you encounter something that needs, well, carrying.

I’ve actually captured this 80 on dash-cam some time ago along with other classics, and made a video. I didn’t upload it because I wasn’t happy with the footage’s quality, but now I guess it might be fitting to attach it here (and you get more CCs for your money):

In Israel, Audi 80s like these were very expensive at the time, but sold reasonably well. Sadly, not many have survived. I have only one more photo of another CC, more neglected but without any rack:
