      Touareg Hybrids are pretty nice, and the warm fuzzies I felt while driving the hybrid was actually the fingers of all of the German tax payers trying to reach into my wallet to get their money back. (Brendan@bwalkauto)

      This will help. It appears that '55 has the lowest total for normal production runs at 270 Cabrios.

      From the 356 Registry.

      I am confident you are wrong, but instead of illustrating why, I will just make disparaging remarks about your reading comprehension.

      I want one that actually runs more than 1000 miles between breakdowns.
      GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND.
      I like torque steer.

      I always wanted one, but have only seen one in person. Makes me wonder what happened to all of them.

      I want that exact car. It is gorgeous. Sadly, most GTV-6s are junk.

      I have been on a waiting list for one of these at a local Italian repair shop since 2005, in case one should ever appear for sale. I don't think the US ever got a TD, but I'm sure the reliability of those was exponentially better than the gasoline models.

      Mine was black. I miss it.

      MKII Audi TT 3.2 Quattro Manual seem to not exist in my area, especially in preferred S line trim:




      I hear ya on the MK2 TT. I looked for a manual for 3-4 months. No luck at all unless I was going to drive 800 miles for the one I found.

      Beretta GTZ in Quasar Blue like my grandpa's old one, memories. He had the 3.1L/Auto, I would like the Quad-4/5MT.

      Honestly, from what im seeing in this thread, it's a bunch of guys that don't know how to repaint a car.
