Re: Ur-Q ... buyer's market or seller's market?

> i diddn't see anyone mention an rr car.  whatever, dude.

I was responding to Dave Eaton's comment about not considering a WR-code Ur-Q 
anything special.  If you check his sig., you'll see that in addition to an 
RS2 he also has an RR-code Ur-Q (20 valve) and this is no doubt the basis for 
his remarks.

>From his perspective, I can understand his sentiments but here in the US, 
only a very few people have found a way to put an RR-code Ur-Q in their 
garage so those of us who want to own one have to make do with what we can 
find.  You can drop another engine into your WC-code Ur-Q but unless you take 
the Steve Eiche approach of creating an *exact* duplicate of an RR Ur-Q using 
a U.S. car as the starting point (and at horrendous expense, I'm sure) all 
you've done is to create a mongrel.  Fun to drive, sure, but not necessarily 
the best idea from a collectible point of view...
