<< More on the details as I progress, but
right now I'm in need of information regarding the cars. I have some stuff
that has arrived via our internal organization, but most of all I need a
copy of Lewandowski's (sp?) Sport quattro book. I know its out of print and
hideously expensive, but I still want one. Does anyone out there have one
they'd like to sell (not likely) or know someplace I might be able to get
I have the quattro portfolio book, which has several road reviews on the sport
quattro. If you are interested, I can e-mail you specific details on the car,
but I'll do a quicky version right now.
