Gol-Dang it, Graydon, somehow you brought the wrath of the Audi gods down upon 
your kindly, but now miserable, unka bart.  

At 0-dark-15 this morning, he hops into his heretofore trusty Syncro, inserts 
key and whiiiiiirrrrrr...chugachugachuga chug-a chug---a chug...

The battery was strong, but somehow, no fire was getting to the cylinders, the 
alternator was alternating, but the pistons weren't pis... errrr, that is, the 
spark-plugs didn't seem to be sparking.

A (non-list) fellow q-head in my neighborhood (who has promised to bring his 
'90 V8 to the gathering on the 12th) suggested that it may be dry-rot in the 
plug-wires.  I also think it could be a blown fuse, anyone got any other ideas?
