When we found out that our good friend Mad Mark was selling his Audi 50, we knew that we needed to photograph it while we still had the chance. Mark’s Audi is a rare machine, quite possibly being the only Audi 50 in the United States. Mark says that his car was “built to park” as a car as rare and as slow as this Audi 50 is not well suited for the streets of Los Angeles. It is truly a beautiful car, a tribute to classic German craftsmanship. While this car has changed owners a few times after it arrived in the states, we are glad to have experienced it while it was on the west coast.
