Well placed graffiti seen at Utrecht Central station.
This Sunday 17th April is the VW aircooled display at the Keukenhof. AKA the Bollenstreekrit (there are also hundreds of other vintage cars on display)
As you might know, the flower park Keukenhof is one of the most beautiful spring gardens in the world which draws in more than 800,000 visitors from around the world in just 2 months.
On Sunday from 10:00 a.m until 2:00 p.m. the cars will be parked at the main entrance of the Keukenhof, at 14:30 pm the cars will take a scenic drive through the region. This will end on the boulevard in Noordwijk where we will be closing the Best Traffic Jam in the Netherlands (de Mooiste File van Nederland)
Here it is also possible to talk about the nice day while enjoying a snack and a drink at one of the many restaurants or beach bars.
Of course everyone is free in his or her choice to only participate in the ride, visit the park or both.
The ‘Museumkaart’ is a great deal if you like to visit the museums of Holland. It gives you FREE access to nearly all the Museums across the country for a paltry price of just €44.00 per adult and €24 per children aged 3 to 12 per year (children under 3 are free in most museums). After visiting the train museum twice and the Nijntje Museum (aka ‘Miffy’ aka Dick Bruna House) more than half a dozen times, I think the card will be fast paying for itself and saving me money to boot!… Get one!
More info at the MuseumKaart website
You can buy ‘museumkaarts’ online or at all of the museums listed on their website, once purchased you can enter for free…wo0t!
Always nice to see some new sh*t from TLP
Looks like mine, only its got an engine
I dropped the bus off at the garage for its MOT and a nice long list of things I need doing including welding floor panels, brake calipers, engine refurb, electrics refurb, replace seatbelts, build the rocknroll bed that is still sitting in it’s box and give it a general top bill of health ready for the interior, when he found out how much I had paid for it he agreed it was a sound investment, but it’s still likely to be a sizeable bill.

These guys are pros with over 50 years of experience with aircooled VWs between them, I asked them to replace the rubbers on two if the windows, one didn’t need it and they patched up a hole in the other windows frame and then replaced the rubber… You wouldn’t have known they worked on it except it didn’t leak anymore, their advice about the brake calipers was true, it swings to the left when I brake..they sais don’t brake hard, and luckily I haven’t used it much over the winter.
Up after this is the floor, cupboards, drawers, fridge and upholstery.
When she’s complete we hope to travel to a few VW fairs and raise some $$ for the WKZ and Nierstichting.
FYI I will be DJing on NYE ( 31.12.2007 ) at the Hard Rock Cafe in Amsterdam.
Lots of Funk, groove, R&B, pop and dance music to party on to.
