The Pokemon

My first strawberries! Simone already had one, and so did the birds, but these are the first two I hand picked myself. Tasted very nice :-)

There was Pokemon in our plants today...

There was one on the way to the supermarket too!

I saw this during shopping. It's a Volkswagen van wine pack.

Replacing ignition parts

So with the new parts I can now replace the distributorcap and the spark plug wires. You really have to connect all the wires the right way or your engine won't run. So I wrote down the connections first.

This is the inside of the old distributor cap. It looks pretty warn out I reckon!

This is the inside of the new cap. Nice and clean!

The rotor looked pretty shot as well but since I didn't have a new one I sanded it a bit.

It took me about an hour to replace all the wires. With a full engine bay it's not so easy.

Of course I had to test it all out. The car started on the 2nd attempt and ran better than the last time.

It actually drove quite well I thought. I took some piccies just because I could ;-)






Nice little drive. Hopefully the car will start up like this all the time from now on...

The car parts

My car parts arrived today, nice!

A truck with my name on it was driving past my work.

The Walibi coasters

Today the four of us went to the Walibi amusementpark. They apparently have the best selection of rollercoasters in the country so expectations were a bit high, but we were not disappointed!

I have a few photos of some of the rides.

This is the "Speed of sound". It's small but cool coz you start quite high (especially if you are in the back car) and you also do the whole track in reverse (going backwards).

Nice little warming-up rollercoaster ;-)

This is their new newest coaster called "Lost gravity". It's nuts. There's no straight part in the whole thing, it's all curves, loopings and screws in any thinkable way possible. Especially the drop-off is quite spectacular since you're dropped in a screw doing half a loop.

It's also quite high.



There's an upside-down army helicopter lying there with a DJ-booth in it with a DJ playing live music! Very cool!

And of course there's the old wooden coaster. Not as tame as it looks, nice ride!

In "El Condor" you don't sit in a car but you hang off of the rails. Now this is a whole different game! When doing a loop you're not IN it but OUT! Really nice ride but the only one that made me a little dizzy...

The "Goliath". I believe it's described as "the fastest, highest and longest coaster in the Benelux" and I think it is!

It's high, it's fast and it's long. This was my favourite ride I think becuse of the speed.

We had a lovely, lovely day here. I loved the rides and had a great time. Can recommend this park to all coaster fans :-)

Ordering parts

Nothing exciting happened today except for ordering a few parts for my Mustangs. I'm hoping to replace the plug-wires and distributor-cap to see if that improves the starting and running of the engine...

The little kitten

In the evening we visited our friend Marjolein who lives around the corner. She has a little kitten that was jumping everywhere but in the end fell asleep at my lap (belly).
Very cute!
