I bought Bruce Hochuli's '82 TQC.  It has a pulsing power problem
(hesitation) in the 3k to 4k RPM range that's bugging me right now.  Time to
hit the archives!  Oh, the joys of TQC ownership.

I'll try to find the old posts and notes.  Almost all were from this list,
Autoweek, or the Quattro Quarterly.  One person with a euro quattro e-mailed
me direct from Quebec.

This car has plenty of power to spare (even with the pulsing).  It has the
Schrick cam and ABT computer, so it's in the 200+ hp range.  The bumpers are
faded badly, otherwise the car's paint is perfect.  I will try to locate the
euro bumpers for the bumper respray I plan to do next year.

I'll keep you posted.
