The Wonder core / The workout / The pizza

I saw this exorcism machine on Tommy's Teleshopping this morning and now I really want one... I waaaaaant a wonder core II.

Crosstraining time when I got home from work. That's 30 minutes of very decent cardio!

Dinner was a medium sized pizza from my own oven. It was nice. And cheap. And slightly birned on one side ;-)

The grille

Early evening the weather got a bit bad. Evil clouds came upon us...

I was browsing an American forum specifically for 71-73 Mustangs and saw this 72 Mustang. I really love the custom grille. I want one like that too now :-)

The boring day

No piccies today. Can't remember anything exciting either. Must've been a boring day, sorry ;-P

The rain

I worked from home today because I had a few appointments in the afternoon for which I needed to be home. At some point it rained really, really, really, REALLY, hard!

At the end of the day I took the bus to Simone and the weather cleared up.

Except for some rain when I was on the bus. It made a giant rainbow which I couldn't properly photograph :-(

The Good vibrations oldtimer meeting

Today was a great day for me because I took my car to an oldtimer meeting for the very first time. The weather was fantastic and the location was great. I was a bit nervous because I didn't know what to expect and of course you're never sure what kind of surprises the car has for me today...

The drive up there went well and I arrived very early with hardly any cars there which was kinda cool.

I parked next to a Corvette.

Within a few minutes somebody else parked his Mustang next to mine. Great looking customised 65-er.

I walked over to say hi and after a bit of chitchat (= car talk) we walked around together to check out the cars.

It's very cool to see people check out your own car.

That's why you bring the car of course but it's still kinda funny :-)

I printed my Marty report and quite some people came to read it.

The meeting was not just for American cars. Any car older than 25 years was welcome.

Here are the rest of my photos. I hope you'll enjoy them!























I love the granny chasing the Camaro. ;-)










Just after 3PM I drove home. I had a great time and I loved the diversity of cars. Lovely day! :-)

Sail 2015

Tonight Simone and I went to Sail 2015, an event where insane amounts of ships come to Amsterdam with amongst them some of the largest and/or most famous in the world. Sail is held every 5 years. We drove down and walked the last bit.

Soon we were surrounded by boats...

Everywhere...

And there were tons and tons of people. Very crowded.

Biggie.

Pirate ship. Well, that's what I call it. I know nothing about ships.

Sails.


There were lots of little boats floating in between.

The Esmeralda was there as well. It's a very controversial ship because it was used by Marcos to torture prisoners. It's a beautiful ship though but, should it be put on stage like this or not?


Masts.


Quite a few people with apartments nearby were giving parties.

And then it got dark.


There was a concert of famous Dutch singer Jeroen van der Boom.


When the concert was over it was promptly followed by fireworks.

And that was that. We strawled back to our car and Simone dropped me off at my house because tomorrow I'm going to drive to an oldtimer festival with my car :-)
