Re: Bought another one ...

I've actually done this, but not in an Audi. Years ago I had a '66 Dodge
A100 van with the slant 6 engine located in an engine box between the front
seats. My brother, a buddy, and I drove to B.C. in the van for a brief
vacation. Since time was of the essence, we only stopped for gas. A can of
beans, suitably vented, when placed on the exhaust manifold vent up, was
piping hot after 50 miles. Didn't even have to stop the truck, just opened
the engine box top, retrieved supper, and used the closed box top as a
table. Of course the dietary choice had consequences, but that's another
story :o)
