    You know it seems to me that Sharan is a Desert wind, Corrado is either
in Spain or Mexico, and Scircco could be Italian.  Correct me if I'm wrong,
but I thought I might have seen that somewhere.  Vento sounds breezey but
Bora, and Jetta I know nothing about.

'87 Audi 4000 Quattro Sedan
'72 Triumph GT6
'83 Toyota Tercel (yoda)     Possible future Sandrail donor...  Maybe
