 31 August 2004: More pinstriping
Finally got around to doing some more pinstriping. Still haven't got a propper pinstripe brush though.

 27 August 2004: Surf de neige
I'd had been a while, but last night snowboarding session was just what the docter ordered. Just to bad they put up a slalom piste half way through my session. Woke up this morning and straight away noticed a few muscles i forgot i had. Must hit the slopes more often.

 23 August 2004: Fame at last
Picked up a copy of the august 2004 issue of Ultra VW magazine and I saw myself in there! It's in the VWoodstock article. One picture of my van and on the next page me and my van. I know the picture isn't that clear, made it with my phone

 09 August 2004: Bug Show Spa Francorchamps
Despite the very hot weather (i just can't stand it) i had a great time at the VW show in Spa (Belgium). Saturday was cloudy, but hot, so i could check out all the cars. Hung out in the shade on sunday, a good oportunity to talk to lot's of people.

Check out the kings of bling!!

Bob should have washed Linda's westy so hot, it's shrunk! :-)

 02 August 2004: DAS Drag Days 2004
It was slightly to hot for me, but it sure added to the california vibe that was already hanging over the show (plenty of yank iron to beat due to the us army base next door).

in the end only about 10 uk busses showed up. there were 27 of them on the cheap crossing, but most didn't bother to drive to bitburg rikki and andy only did 1 run, both a 17.5the other 2 uk busses made runs in the 19s.
Vincent (beltek bus) wanted to break the 18 so he could get into the BWA. he had about 8 runs. all sub 18.1, but never that elusive sub 18 run!! he's gota invest in a berg shifter

The old speed challenge (enige must have a fixed alternator stand) had 6 entries. the guy with a blue printed stock 30 horse engine beat all the guys with turbo's en okrassa kits. his trick: don't use the clutch !!
