    I saw one for sale about 3 months ago in the TO Autotrader, Don - I
think. The ad read something to the effect "1985 Audi Quattro, competition
car, very fast, blah,blah, $10,000".
    The ad included a picture of what I thought was a modified Ur-q. I
remember thinking "Look at those fenders! You could use them for picnic
tables! Who would do that to a Ur-q?"
    The Audi factory, apparently. I saw a photo of a Sport Quattro for the
first time last month.
    Either the car in the Autotrader was a bone fide Sport Quattro, or
someone had gone to a lot of trouble to convert it to look like one.
    But then time (and embarrassment over lost opportunities) does dim
memory. I gather from previous postings that the Sport Quattro is a rare and
valuable beast.
