Mebbe Audi has finally caught on and will lower the
cost of keeing prime examples of their automotive art
on the road tobe enjoyed for more years, urq, 200q20v,
etc. VW has been advertising for some time that they
have substantially lowerd their parts prices..... We
can hope.

-glen  "Upon common theaters, indeed, the applause of the audience is of more importance to the actors than their own approbation. But upon the stage of life, while conscience claps, let the world hiss! On the contrary if conscience dissapproves, the loudest applause of the world are of little value."
