    Great stuff R-2800.

    Now that you are on the VW subject I have very sad news for you guys that love VW clasic cars. Here is SA we have a VW Museum where all the last of a kid VW are housed and some of them tose that were the last one build. NOw VW had a big rally in Cape Town and they took the Clasic VW cars out of the Museum and put them on a truck drove to Cape Town, but when they came back the truck over turned and most of all those clasical cars destroyed. The last VW beatle build here, a Audi Passat, a VW Kombi were just some examples of what were destroyed, they were the last build of their type and model here is SA.
