I went to pick up some parts last week, and found a very interesting-looking 
vehicle parked at the Audi dealers.  It was a C-registered (1984?) Coupe with a 
quattro sticker on the back.  These things _DO_ exist - the non-turbo and non-
flared arches version of the Coupe GT with a quattro drive train.
What was utterly fascinating was the shift lever - an automatic!

This is a very rare beast indeed.  Perhaps unique.  Or it would have been - if 
the quattro sticker really belonged on there.  Which it didn't.
A perfectly ordinary Coupe GT automatic.  I was _very_ disappointed.
