Re: Ur-quattro article


A very generous offer.  I assume this is the article by Bob Nagy called
"4-wheel-drive Bavarian dream stuff", with the sidebar by Ron Grable.  If
so, it's reprinted in the Audi Quattro Gold Portfolio which I have.  If
that is the article, you may want to point out that it's in the Gold
Portfolio to save yourself a lot of faxes.

If it isn't, I'd be very interested in a copy to (408) 286-0202.  Thanks.
