Re: Documentation: Re: List Nazis

Good points.  I've already appologized so I won't again.  My point was
that we had spent about three weeks fussing with each other on this topic
previously and I was not wanting to go through all that again.  The info
gathered on the racing Audi's was great - I enjoyed reading it.  But there
was a lot of bickering back and forth about what was true and what wasn't.
I will appologize to you, eliot.
