I've maybe seen a dozen Type IIIs (o.k., maybe 15 or 20) in the last 6 years here in Michigan.  That includes on the road & at shows...

Man...I thought I was bad...
I lived north of you, Greg, by about 2 hours, until about two years ago,
and the only type 3 I ever saw that wasn't in a magazine or book was my
Squareback!!!  I found my Fastback in Michigan when I was moving to Ohio
(please, I know all the Michigan/Ohio jokes;).  Now that I live in
Columbus I see type 3's fairly often...but not 4 or 5 a week!!!  Must be
nice.  However, it is cool when someone speeds up to pull along side of
you just to ask what kind of car it is...as long as they don't say...
"Hey, man...Is that a VOLVO!?!?!?!   AAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!

It takes peace and understanding, huh...
