    Not that important, but if you wanted to know, I think it is Mosel:

    Yep, that's correct, sorry. The other one (Mosul) has unfortunately been on the news too much lately so that's where my mind went.

    Do you guys remember the war coverage in Iraq in 2003 and how popular VW seemed to be there, particularly really old B1/B2 Passats?

    Ah, wasn't aware of that. I limit my purchases to vehicles built in Germany, Sweden, and Japan. Though I DID make the mistake of buying a German car built in these United States once - never again!

    I'd play it safe. If I had to call, I would address you as Mr. Ross. You see, even if we went for "Mr. U. Ross" - phonetically that's exactly what we're trying to avoid. "Did I say Ewe? Sorry I meant U." [drags foot sideways towards door, whistling]

    A perfect Catch22.
