I think this is it...

Boris - Emerald Inferno - Wendy - Me - Spec Dave - Nebio in CO - Adrian - Dave (StarlightB5) - Charles (Hotani)

Of that Boris and Dave (StarlightB5) are the only guys that I think still have their B5 Passat. We know Dave does, I last saw Boris driving last Summer. Spec Dave may still have his.

Wow that was a ways back. My passat was still stock, and I think that was the first drive I went on with the group.
Quick! Everyone out of the universe!

Jay, your's was stock FOREVER!!!  You barely had springs on for our first track day back in 2002.

I thought Boris had to sell his, due to the divorce....but I could be wrong.

and Wendy is not in that pic...she did not join us until after 2002...right around the first National, and track day.  She still had temp tags on her car then.  I remember because her and Amanda came over for car washing before track day, and Wendy JUST got her passat.

edit, I actually think that silver car is an A4...Pat maybe?-----never mind, Pat never had a bra on his car...hard to tell, but maybe it was Rob?....

You may be right, that may be Pat. My car was only stock for two years. :P

I didn't mod because it was a lease, I did do cosmetic mods starting in 2001, Kamei grille, clear corners and side markers. Them I got laid off so instead of turning it in I bought it and went berserk. Springs, chip (which was dirt cheap thanks to an auction), followed by a short shift, then wheels. All in like a 6 month period. :) I also did it all for about $900 if you can believe that.

Nice Jay...I had no idea you got all that stuff for so cheap.  When I had my 2003 Passat, I had it 3 weeks before i modded it....Hella Bi-Xenons from Europe, Neuspeed Springs, BBS CH rims and tires, Hoefle rear deck lip, interior chrome line trim, ABT silver gauge clusters, and all my LED mods through out the car.

I miss that Passat, but from there I went to the allroad.  Kinda wish I stuck with the Passat, but divorces are a funny thing, and recovering from it was strange too ;)

Wow some "Old School" B5 stuff.

Brings back fond memories of the B5 variant.  As well as many people who have come through these doors.

I think Boris still has his ride.  He was/is living around 12th and Colorado and I saw the car parked over that way a few months ago.  

That makes me think about Chas.  Has anyone been in touch with him lately?

RobD

ps I got some nice Cohibas in recently.  Very tasty!!!!

We did hear from CHas recently on AudiWorld, seems he picked up a C5 A6 2.7T for the wife.

home page showed my first passat, 2001.5 1.8T with 16" BBS RX rims.  You can also see my turbo beetle in the garage.  Goofy girl car, ex-wife got it, but man, that was a blast to drive....17" rims, Xenon conversion, Turbo S interior upgrades, rear wing, tint, and APR chip.
