The hydraulic ramps

I drove to Leiden today to buy myself an early birthday present. It looks like a coffin but it ain't. If only my car was big enough for that, ha! ;-)

I bought hydraulic ramps to life my Mustang up so I can get underneath. Now I need to order a new starter-motor and with these ramps I can replace the old one myself without having to drive somewhere :-)

Bye bye Choppermeister

Tonight I sold the Choppermeister. I had it for over 10 years and parting wasn't easy. But the new owner loves it and is very happy he was able to buy it from me. I'm happy for him to have it.

I drank a nice glass of whiskey when I got home.

The card

I have officially moved in with Simone as of today. Our neighbours gave us this lovely card.

The Mustang

An accident happened next to my office this afternoon. A car hit a scooter...

In the evening we went to Milan's new school. When we left I saw this really nice Mustang parked outside. It was in very good condition. I wouldn't mind having this as a daily driver!

The roadworks

Recently, close-by, trees have been cut and certain areas have been made ready for work but we had no idea what was going on. Today I looked things up and found out about changes in our neighbourhood.

This is how they're going to make the new intersection that will replace the current "situation". I think it's an improvement.

And here they are finally going to make some traffic lights. It's one of two ways out of our neighbourhood and when it's busy it can be a real pain getting on the road below that leads up to the freeway.

The only shame is all the trees that they need to cut for this. But they promised to re-plant new ones. We shall see...

Clouds in the water

I stood on the bridge for a few minutes before my bus came. The water looked nice.

On the way back home...

In the evening Simone and I went for a walk.

Good Vibrations @ the Beach

Today Milan and I drove to an oldtimer event called "Good Vibrations @ the Beach" in my Mustang. I went here last year as well and it was a really nice day then. Today the weather wasn't as good and because of other events in the area also involving oldtimers there was only a third of the amount of cars compared to last year which was a pity.

Nevertheless, my car drove fine, there wasn't a single drop of rain and I had applepie. And Milan wanted to come along which was cool :-)

Below are some of the cars that were there.
