Re: spelling goofs on Audi's web pages

oops, my bad.  I had one once... spent it.  But... I do remember a story
from the 70's I think that a bunch of pennies, like 50 or 100, were made
by the mint as demos, since copper/zinc was getting too expensive, and
they were handed around Congress (or the Senate) for show and tell and
most of them "disappeared"

I probably made this up, too.  Oh well.
