famous owners

PostPost by: Luthier » Wed Jul 10, 2002 5:38 pm

When I bought my S4 coupe, I was told that a previous owner was John
Geils of the J. Geils Band. Not as famous as Emma P. but not totally
unknown.

Hi

I remember John Geils of the J. Geils Band!
Several great songs, including "Cali-forni-cating."

When I bought my S4, I was told that a previous owner was Mamma Cass Eliott
of theMammas & Pappas Band. Looking at the condition of the seat, I
believed it! I wish it had been sweet Emma's bottom or should I say
Emma's sweet bottom. Apparantly her outfits helped the Danish leather
clothing industry! Must go now!

Then there's the guy (who wishes to remain
anonymous;-)who wanted to replace a rear hub drive
shaft that was damaged many moons ago, so he went out
and bought two more of the b*ggers from the
classifieds!!

The Crown Prince of Brunei once owned a S4.

But there again when you have 3000 cars it must be hard to
find that little plastic thing.
