Who's who

John R. Daker
Undergrad mechanical engineer at Case Western Reserve University
Cleveland, Ohio

1984 Toyota Celica GT-S
1973 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL 4.5

1987 Cagiva 650SS Alazzurra

The quattro is my girlfriends, the Celica, Benz, and Duc are mine.  She's
had the Audi for a year now.  I drive it quite often, and I really do
like it.  It's build quality is high; it feels solid.  Not perfect though,
but what is.  The ergonomics are pretty bad, the stereo is akin to my
clock/radio.  And it pushes.  Pushes like a plow through the dirt, ie
major understeer.  Seats aren't all that great.

Likes: The engine pulls very strongly (even though not abundant in power),
and sounds great doing it.  Wet weather stability.  Jack-rabbit starts.
Quality of materials.  Good visibility (except for rt.side mirror).  It's

It is geared a little low for my tastes, but around town, all I need is
1st, 3rd, and 5th.  I can't believe a greman car is geared so low.

How's this for an into?
