The AutoArts aren't bad. The 'tard on ebay that thinks he is going to get $500 for a 2000 dealer only car is excessive but there should be others around.

While this might become addictive, try ebay.co.uk or ebay.de

Don't ask.

^^^I have been to that VW storage facility in Wolfsberg, it is truly impressive how they just punch the computer and your new car is delivered down to you.

Here is the VW factory in Slovakia, Bratislavia where they make all Touaregs, Audi Q-7's, Porsche Cayennes, some of the Skoda's, and I heard some of the Audi S8's. The cable carts are taking all cars directly fro the factory to the secure shipping facilities. I read where they installed this after they had some major pilfering problems transporting the cars from the factory to the secured shipping facility via land. Of course VW has a website dedicated to this production facility Welcome to the world of VOLKSWAGEN SLOVAKIA - VOLKSWAGEN SLOVAKIA, a.s. but even though Porsche has all of it's Cayennes 85% made there as well they ship the mostly finished Cayennes in covered car carriers to their German factory where they assemble the other 15% and then put a stamp on it, Made in Germany.............

Are you F*ing kidding me?? They created this monumental contraption to transport finished vehicles through the air in order to combat a "pilfering problem"???

IT looks like something Mercedes would develop. Somehow, I imagine there might be a simpler way??!

I'm thinking vacuum transport tubes, like they used to have in old office buildings

You know, I really shouldn't say this, but that device would come in mighty handy for transporting Israelis to and from their "settlements" in the West Bank
