TOO HOT

IMGP3524

we took the car for a spin sunday, and "found" this castle, dating from centuries ago, we met the guy living in the castle and it seemed he was a customer in our perfumery shop (he tought i was driving a brasilia -huh- you know a brasilia ?). it was way to hot to drive around in a black car however, and we got home a little bit earlier to enjoy the sun in our lazy seats...

hammer

IMGP2615
the starter decided it was time to "start" being difficult. nothing that a blow of a hammer couldn't help. the day after the problem reoccurred however, and i always parked it downhill after that :-)

team it up

IMGP2641
et voila, the driving team of "the little black volkswagen" we did quite well, and if it hadn't been for this stupid mistake we had made on the last day, we could have done better than 39th place.

ING roads

IMGP2553
I'm back from Spa, had a great weekend competing against exotics. Mr Peeters' (another one, of course hahaha) Ferrari 275GTB was a real beauty and it was quite impressive when this beauty came blasting down the road. the sound and the beauty of this old lady learns us why we are into cars.
