RE: VW & Audi

FWIW, VW purchased Audi in 1968 with the passing of VW's second "father," 
Heinz Nordoff. The original* Golf was based on the 1970's vintage Audi 90 
(Fox) and of course, the "VW" OHC four-banger is in fact an Audi design. 
SO... in a manner of speaking, VWs are Audis--not vice versa!

*The prototypes for what became Golf had VW's Type IV boxer up front under 
the hood.

1987 5kSQ @170,000 and going strong!
formerly: 1975 100LS :-(
	1980 Jetta 2dr--sold @340,000 :-)
	1968 Microbus
	1972 914
	1961, 1968, 1974 Bug
