When I think of Paris I think “Fashion”. From this day forward, Paris and Chip Beck are synonymous with “Fashion”.

Air France = “Air Chance”. They’ve lost my stuff twice on trips to France. They are good at finding you later on though, even out in the boonies.

Looks like your steering wheel is on the wrong side for France.

Gentlemen,

DBK made the scene here in Paris today and joined Peg & I for dinner at our hotel. Tomorrow morning we head to Le Mans. And........a short while ago our bags showed up. Even better.

What a pair to draw too! Have fun and bring home the gold in the form of 1-2-3-4-5! I do prefer the Ford GT look over the French look Chip! Glad you got your luggage! Look out for John Anhalt with Tint world in Ben Keating’s pits and tent. Ben has given him great tickets to the pits and his tent. He a great guy! Please send lots of pictures to the Forum for those of us unable to attend!
