Alas, Poor Audi, I Knew It Well....

In September, 2001, about a week and a half after I completed my 1700 mile oddesy, I was driving along a back road and hit a slick spot.  The car began to fishtail, and before I knew it, I was going down the road upside down and backward.  I came to rest perpendicular to the road, hanging from my seat belt, with the CD still playing.

I was unhurt, but the car was totaled.  Sigh....   But, within two weeks I had a new one, a near twin to the first.

This is the only picture I took of the car on the trip, at Alleghany Virginia.

Here it is in the storage yard after the accident.


This is the new one.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but it's the same blue as the old one.
