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.
'89 Jetta 1.8L 16V GTX
'87 Audi 4000 Quattro Sedan
'72 Triumph GT6
'83 Toyota Tercel (yoda) Possible future Sandrail donor... Maybe
