[V8] Having problems sending this message to the V8 List

First off, does your exhaust seem sooty?  If so, I'd look to either:

1) Frayed, burnt insulator wire for the O2 signal wire

2) Coolant sensor at back of pass cyl head (next to distributor)

Just my opinion -- and maybe a bit of experience ;-)

I have been trying to send this message to the list and so far my
attempts have been unsuccessful.  Would you please help?  Thank you.
Subject:  Failed Emissions Miserably 1990 V8 Quattro Auto

So, if I were as rich as my car is running right now I wouldn't be
having this problem...I failed all aspects of the emissions test, all of
them.  Results are:

HC ppm
Limit   Reading
220      687 (2500+-300)
220      1208 (Idle 775+-425)

Limit   Reading
1.20     9.95
1.20     10.62

What's really bugging me is that I replaced the 02 sensor over a year
ago (passed then with no problems).  I also replaced the Fuel Pressure
Regulator about 4-5 months ago.  What else could be affecting this?
Right now I am assuming that I have a prematurely failing 02 sensor.
What else should I look at?  The only other recent work I have done is
PS hoses and fixing most of the problems with my instrument cluster.  I
have 10 days to fix the problem so any immediate ideas are greatly
appreciated.  Thanks...
