Actually, they've made them since the 60s I believe. But regardless, it was one store, and they just had one in stock and decided to get rid of it with some panache, so they decided to throw a car in if someone would buy it for list price. Which was around $23,000. Marketing. And it was a VW I think. ========= Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO A bartender is just a pharmacist with a limited inventory.
