Keithuk: forgive me for my pedant ways, but lots of folk often quote this saying and attribute its originator to Mr H Ford (who was by all counts an interesting man). Fact is that it's a myth! Although it's certainly true that the vast majority of model T cars were indeed black, throughout its production the car was produced in many different colors, including blue, red, green and grey. Some have said that many of these hues were so dark they were hardly discernible from black, and that this is another reason why the myth lives on.As they say:

About 13, actually, but it's not as bad as you would think. My Passat V6 takes 6.5 quarts of oil on a fixed 5,000 mile OCI. The Phaeton W12 takes 13 quarts of the exact same type of oil, but it has a fixed 10,000 mile OCI. It works out to the same per-mile cost.12 bottles per change???
Full ACK!Yep, they also made the Rialta, but the Eurovan version is easy to parallel park if you ever want to go into town. ;-). It has "everything you need, but nothing you don't."
Saw the California in the most recent (in the States) episode of DriveIt! and really wish they were sold here.The T5 California (BiTDI, DSG, 4Motion) is for business and/or camping trips,
Restoring one is my retirement project.the pony ('67 Convertible 289-4V) is mostly pleasure
