The solid build of Audi's never ceases to amaze me. I was going for take
out in downtown La Jolla, and was running late to pick up my date. Given
the superior handling of my 90q20v, I was driving quite briskly. Just as
I passed the Comedy Club on Pearl, I hit a big dip at just under 70mph.
Upon seeing the dip, I had scrubbed off as much speed as possible without
control. Next thing I knew, all four tires were in the air, and I was soaring
through the intersection about one foot off the ground. Before I could get
"Look what you've done now stupid," out of my mouth, the front tires touched
down with a thud. The rest of the car followed, and I swore I would never
drive faster than the double nickle if the Audi gods would spare my ride
just this one last time. I pulled over, grabbed my flashlight, and walked
around the car, prepared for the worst. I couldn't believe it...nothing.
The front spoiler was intact without a scratch...I could see where the tires
touched down, as a nice gray spot from where they folded over the rim was
noticeable on both front tires. I looked toward the heavens and smiled,
I had been spared...just this once.
P.S. I broke my promise, smoked a brand new Carrera with a light-footed
coming up Torrey Pines Road. Hit 80 at the tightest turn, and he chickened
When he caught me at a red light at the top of the hill, I caught him
read the badges on my trunk.
