On the same vein,

Last month Classic Car (british mag), there was 15 destination to aim for 
in a classic car. One of them was the RAC rally stages, to be done in a 
Quattro (of course!) when listening to 
"Duel" a tune from the 80's group Propaganda. Funny fact; this album is 
the only one I possess I had to special-order (NLA at my favourite music 
store) because I deeply wanted it in CD format (I still have the cassette 
from 1984). You know why, my first girlfriend, my first car, my firsts... 
were linked to that group.
I was really surprised to find Propaganda and Quattro in the same 

Ahhh, the eighties...


two recent magazine mentions- latest Sports Car (Illustrated or 
International?) has a Greatest Sports cars of the 80's, Editors' and 
Readers' Top Ten Lists.  The urq was in there- either 4 or 7 overall can't 
remember, in the company of some of my other dream cars - Ferrari 288 GTO, 
Porsche 959, 911 Turbo......

In the latest Automobile in the "On The Block" section where they give 
mention to notable cars sold at Auction.  An Urq was sold for about $4200. 
 They said it was a white '83 with grey (?) interior.  Sounded like a 
tired car - they thought top dollar was paid but also said it was a cult 
car with perfect examples getting about $10,000.
