Re: "pulling" trunk codes

Back when we lived in Canada (until 91) there was a funny looking military
utility vehicle used by the Canadian Armed Forces (don't laugh), and low and
behold, once within 100 feet, you could not (at least I couldn't) miss it -
ILTIS !!!  Yes, the Canadian forces use the Iltis, complete with Bombardier
ID, who built it under licence, in all of its glory.  This is the original
quattro, I recall Hannu Mikkola calling it the Ur-urquattro with a smile.
