This was discussed extensively on the Corrado list also. Unfortunately
no one seemed to realize that it was a JOKE. The picture shows a dodge
viper, plain as day, with a vw emblem stuck on the hood! There was an
extensive (serious) discussion about the use of alternative fuels in
other vw models. The only reason I didn't step in and say anything was
that I couldn't for the life of me find a polite and sophisticated way to
explain that "organically-produced methane" is nothing more than cow
For what its worth...
