Re: '83 Ur-Q for sale...
I'd like to know the number of '91 200q's as well. I wouldn't mind know the
number of '90 90q20v's either. Finally, I REALLY would like to know just how
many '85 urq's are still on the road. Speaking of my '85 urq, Jeff G, did I
ever mention that I did buy the very last left side head light frame in
North America? I also bought the second to the last right side. Disclaimer -
I may have 'em mixed up. Either way I got the last one for one side.
