Sound about right.

The currency conversion is right, but car prices are higher in Canada.  The
new 1993 90 Quattro (base) is supposed to list for $33K here; the 1992 with
leather and sunroof etc. is probably selling for $35-36K right now.  So
the car is actually at about 35% of the price of a new one.  (And that
doesn't even include the 7% GST that you pay on a new car, but not on a 
used one.)

As a side note, 1986 4000 Quattros can be had for around $6K...
