Re: I LOVE these cars!
I agree that there aren't many Q's on the lots, but there's a reason.
The fwd's aren't moving that well. Everytime a Q comes in, it gets
sold. While the fwd sit for a while and stack up. Plus, a lot of Q
buyers want to special order their cars to get exactly what they want (we
listers would know that better than anyone). I imagine the actual sales
rate may be a little greater than 50% for the Q's, while the fwd's tend
to overrun the lots.
My opinion, sort of empirically based.
