coupe thoughts...


Saw a new Monte Carlo yesterday...

Saw a nice mid '80s 635 this afternoon...

Got me thinkin'...   (it happens once in awhile:-)

Yeah, you guessed it, Wouldn't it be nice if Audi had built an '86-'88
5000 Coupe Quattro?  You know, a notchback, like the WMB 6/8 series. 
Maybe they could shorten the wheelbase about 5 inches, shave off a couple
hundred pounds, and give it the 20V engine, and a few more HP...  That
would have been a fabulous car!  Imagine a svelte 3100#, 230HP 
(expandable to 300+) 2-door coupe, with AWD.  Kinda sounds like a ponycar 
killer doesn't it?

	Now just how hard would it be to cut the chassis.....
