another one bites the dust

Well, it seems that bad luck comes in groups. Another Audi bites the dust.
I just got off the phone with my wife who A)informed me that she is OK, and 
B)"the audi is totalled". Seems a woman in a Neon ran a red (she was ticketed)
and my wife broadsided her. Carie was taken to the hospital for observation
and was soon therafter released. The car was taken to a body shop that
pronounced it most likely totalled. Air-bag deployed, a/c compressor snapped 
off its mounts, passenger doors won't open.  All of this of course happens 
while I am almost exactly 12,000 miles away from Boston in japan. It is of 
course not a catastrophy, or anything close to it, since Carie is 
nothing more than a little shaken.

But it will leave me with out my  (ironically, Carie was driving my car to
take it to Auto-Bon imports in Cambride, which is very close to where she 
works) 1990 Audi 200 quattro wagon with euro headlights, 1.8 bar chip and 
brand new  pirelli winter p210s all around when I return on friday. So if 
anyone know the wherabouts of a 89-90 200qw in decent shape, let me know

Otherwise, I might just have to find out if 5 speed Volvo awd wagans are 
available in massachusetts.....And I really don't want to do that.
