RE: New Audi ad

One small correction, Brett.  Unless they did this commercial for two
different models, it was a red '88 90q.  Exactly like the one I bought back

BTW, they didn't show the safety cable setup under the car.  It was there
to prevent potential disaster rather than as an aid to climbing the slope.

It was a quite effective ad.

BTW2,  Who you callin' a BHOF?  (Bald headed old, uh, fellow - yeah that's
it fellow.  :-)  Just because I *am* one doesn't mean I hafta be called
one.  :-)
