Back from the Tour de France
« on: August 04, 2004, 10:38:23 AM »
Hey all,

How you been?  Didya miss me?  Didya realize I was gone? :-P  I just got back Monday night from a few weeks in France.  Saw a little over a week of the Tour de France and also did some sightseeing in Normandy and Paris.

I took a few pics of B5's I saw while over there and have posted them in the gallery here.  There were several teams that used B5's as support vehicles (wagons were popular for obvious reasons) and Skoda was an official sponsor of the tour so most of the race officials were driving around in Skoda B5's.

I saw a ton of Passats in Paris, mostly as taxis.  Almost all were TDI's.  I think I saw a total of two 1.8T Passats the whole time I was over there.  Saw several Audi A3's and even a couple A2's (which are funky looking vehicles).

I was so happy to get back to my own B5 and drive her to work yesterday.  Now I just need to get her ready for the track day on the 20th.  I might be able to make D&B's tonight, and if so, I'll see ya there.
