Re: I LOVE these cars!

I agree that there aren't many Q's on the lots, but there's a reason.  
The fwd's aren't moving that well.  Everytime a Q comes in, it gets 
sold.  While the fwd sit for a while and stack up.  Plus, a lot of Q 
buyers want to special order their cars to get exactly what they want (we 
listers would know that better than anyone).  I imagine the actual sales 
rate may be a little greater than 50% for the Q's, while the fwd's tend 
to overrun the lots.

My opinion, sort of empirically based.
