It looks like a very nice & clean 1990 C4 A4 Vert.
You have the leather sport seats with lumbar too.
C5 wheels installed.

Being a Mopar guy, I'm not up on a lot of terms. What is an A4? Auto 4 speed I'll bet.
Like I said, if I buy a fixer-upper it'll cost nearly what this one is costing me and still need all that's been done to this one.

Yes A4 ='s Automatic 4-speed overdrive trans. 700R4. 4L60E, 4L80E.
Your 1990 C4 has the 700R4 trans like my 87.

There are a few Mopar guys floating around here too.
You may not like the A4 shifter. Nothing like a 1970 Cuda Hemi 4- speed Hurst Pistol Grip shifter.
Have a real hard core drag- road race friend here that may change the sucky C4 Auto shifter for all.
He is using his 86 C4 for prototype performance Auto shifter development.

Yes. But I wake up frequently in a cold sweat. This is a big step for me.

First signs if the disease !!!!! If you try to find a cure now it is too late. Leaving will cause dizzyness, shakes, blurry vision, and a loss of memory.

After I sent a deposit to hold the car, the seller has had several offers, higher than he priced it to me. I just hope he's a man of his word and holds it for me. Or at least tells me before I make a 5 hr drive. I think that's more where my cold sweats are coming from.

Before you leave, you may want to call him and inquire if the deal is still on, if you haven't already. Good luck.

Yes. That's the plan. I expect everything will be fine. You know how it is, your mind always goes to the worst case scenario.

It will be there ready & waiting for you to drive away in.

I had to wait 1 week to pick up my 87 Vert too.
Knew the salesman in the GM Dealership I worked in.
He would walk by & left the keys on my Snap On toolbox everyday before lunch.
Owner stopped by everyday to my work stall & asked me if I was going to buy or not by 3pm.
Got the check from my bank.
Signed.
Drove home.
Paid off in 15 months. 2 years early working my tail off.
Life has been Good.

Now. It's friday. It's 16 degreese outside and we have at least 1" of new snow and the car is 5-6hrs away. Perfect day.
