I may be acquiring an audi in Burlington, Vermont and need it transported to
Fort Bragg, California.  Any words of wisdom out there.  More specifically,.
any recommendations on car moving services, things to watch out for, how you
handle th exchange of funds and so on.

And, can anyone recommend a person in the Burlington area that would be
willing to look at this car, do the usual mechanical things (compression,
inspections), and give me an evaluation?  I really am trying to avoid having
to fly to Vermont during the winter; hate ice and snow...especially when
airplanes are involved.

Potential acquisition is 91 200 Quattro Avant; fyi.

> The Quattro Faq-O-Matic, which some of you have been asking about,
> began anew a few weeks ago.
> The FAQ-O-Matic allows for:
> -easy contribution(hint hint) from anyone, anywhere, any time, on any
> computer, with a minimum amount of involvement needed from the
> administrators(thus if they're busy, nothing will get held up waiting
> for them); email addresses associated with entries keep people
> honest, or sections can be "locked down" in very flexible ways for
> critical parts of the FOM.
> -searching
> -uploading prewritten text you have saved on your hard drive or
> writing straight into an text input box
> -linking between answers(see the User's Guide for instructions on how)
> -various formatting options(monospaced for tables/diagrams, normal,
> and HTML for complex things you want to write/format in an HTML
> authoring tool)  Note that Natural mode tends to "munge" carriage
> returns; add one extra return to get your desired effect.
> -designated moderators of a section(ie, if Steve wanted a section
> about the UrQ mailing list, I could designate him moderator of that
> section)  Moderators can do more, like create categories, remove/move
> answers, that sort of thing...stuff not intended for mere mortals :-)
> -uploading graphics(gif/jpegs) or other files which are associated
> with a particular entry for illustration purposes(keep 'em SMALL, and
> read the User's Guide for info on how to do this; they can be inline,
> ie, used as an illustration, or simply linked to)  This has
> advantages when mirroring(see next)
> -easy mirroring; you install the FOM software on any unix box with
> perl and a webserver; child FOMs know how to "talk" to the parent to
> copy the content, but please don't mirror anything yet)  Mirroring
> includes images, files, etc included in the FOM(in "bags")
> -output one big single page with all content(ie, for publishing/printout),
> The URL:
> http://brettd.dsl.speakeasy.net/fom-serve/cache/1.html
> But, before you go leaping over, don't expect much stuff.  It's in
> need of more content, which is -VERY- easy for -ANYONE- to do(you
> just need to provide a valid email address for authentication and to
> get credit  for your submission.)  Hint hint.  I also -know- there
> are errors and omissions to many answers and many need more "meat" to
> the them, please feel free to correct/add on to answers I've put
> in(see the User's Guide below on how to edit existing text for an
> answer, or add a second text part; when you edit an item, your email
> address is added to the original author's.)  Please try to give
> credit where credit is due(I tried my best when I copied someone's
> email.)  If you have a correction/addition for an item, you can also
> email the author of the "answer" item(right now, all the items were
> added by me.)
> I've added many basic initial categories; don't worry, I plan on
> expanding or shifting things around as is needed.
> Please check out:
> -The Faq-O-Matic User's Guide.  It is excellent, very refined, and

> -You can also look at a quick-and-dirty getting started page, here,
> which also contains some info about where to put submissions:

> Why did I decide to "go public" with the FOM?
> -because a lot of people have been asking about it recently
> -nobody has really come up with something better for a list FAQ
> -we're seeing more and more new list members and we need to encourage

> of the list
> -list traffic is out of control(fully 50% of the list said the daily
> volume was too high in a survey a few months ago; also, more than 50%

> I welcome comments/questions/requests for assistance in private, and
> I hope those of you who have always wanted to give back to the list
