 I feel a bit responsible for the clamor that has ensued since I mentioned
the 4000q turbo project. I'll try to sum it up with a few thoughts....

As a coupe and a sedan owner, I can say that I prefer the practicality of the
sedan bodystyle. It's very user-friendly! My impetus for the 4000q turbo
project was raising the power output of the 4000q without overboring the
block. It's also, as Glen said, a great tech challenge. I've seen only one
out in the wild, so it's possible, not necessarily easy! 

I love the lines of the TQC, it's as breathtaking to look at 12 years later
as I'm sure it was at it's introduction! Mine's got the unusual velour
interior, I understood it was almost a delete option to remove leather from a
$35,600 car!
