You forgot to mention that Derek was giving rides in the brand new 2002 A4
V6 that they drove up there. Sweeeet!
I was able to snag the third ride before I had to leave to catch a plane.
The only way to describe it is Smooth and precise, which equaled fast. I was
only sorry that it had to come to an end.
Who won the Concourse?
91 200 20v
