I took the following pictures at a well-respected Audi repair facility
in the Pacific Northwest.
1972 Corvette Stingray:
1973 Audi 100 LS: http://5000tq.com/audifanspics/Images/1973_Audi_100LS_01
There was also a 1982 Porsche 924 Turbo S in the same state of
"natural-reclamation." It was too difficult to get near in order to get
p.s. I have to give another shout out of thanks to Cody Forbes for
providing the web space to post all these images.
