I bought my ur-quattro from a used car lot south of Towcester in
Northamptonshire.  The car had come from Wales, which is a fair trog
from Towcester, and was registered in a woman's name.  The dealer
made it clear that, although the car was registered to a woman, it
had been driven mainly by her husband after his own car had been
crushed in a farm accident.  Give the premium usually attached to "one
careful lady driver" I thought this was very honest.
