You're the man!  However, unless I was in the ozone, I don't 
think I posted looking for a project car.  I forget who did,
but I remember a post about 10 days ago.

I have one project car at the moment, and four in the driveway.
My insurance company says I don't qualify for fleet rates, and
it's killing me.

I have thought about looking for a turbo for my 1.6 NA, which I'll
be redoing the cyl head on in a couple of weeks.  I decided to not
really look, because I wasn't sure that I had the time to get 
all the new parts and pieces (incl inj pump) lined up.

Perhaps there's someone else drooling over this gem.

Oh, I'm located near Rochester NY, which is east of the Buffalo
and Niagara Falls area.  We have a couple of VW Dieselers in the area.
