Tell you what, I will trade you 2 drive-by shootings and one hand grenade attack for you being where I live and me being in Germany at the moment:D

Anyone want to take over my job in Kosovo? Really easy: get former terrorists to stop murdering people and be nice to their neighbours. Give me an XMass pressie and volunteer :2:. Any takers?

I should hopefully be leaving Kosovo in the next 2-3 months. Then I can party again:D.

Looking forward to you bullsh*tting me (oops, telling me stories) about the weekend just gone. Until then I hate you: as already stated in other threads I am being prevented from driving above 80kmph, and all the local ladies have faces like a bag full of smashed crabs/chewed toffee/welders bench/bulldog licking p*ss off a nettle. Death to people who can drive over 50mphgrrrrrrr .

Only kidding. Just getting (ever so slightly) **** envious of you guys having FUN (FUN is officially forbidden from general use by UN personel since Koffee Annan swapped our annual fun allocation with Saddam Hussein for a couple of thousand USD and a BJ from Abdul 'sucks like a Dyson' Mohammed-bin-al-Fallaicum.

Not that I am embittered or anything!ouich

What to do on a cold saturday morning? Well, a drive from Brussels to the Nurburgring should do it and because the Canonball was in town, I decided to catch up with them and try to keep up. My Audi A4 B5 1996 might not be that fast, but in the end, I was together with the first 5 Cannonballers who managed to get to the Nurburgring first. With an average speed of give or take 160 km an hour (top speed 210) it didn't take us long. In front of us a yellow Lamborghini Diablo, an Aston Martin Vanquish and a more then cool Mercedes SL65 AMG.
Had a blast that day and can't wait for the next 'Run' that will go through Belgium..

I attached some pictures. Too bad the quality of some ain't that good because it was pretty dark. I couldn't use my flash there since the cars were so shiny the reflection caused instant blindness :hihi:

I'd like to participate in an event like this somewhere...in the future.
Anybody might have a clue how to get decent sponsorship in Belgium?

Some more pictures for those who missed out on all the fun.

Question: where can you get those 'camera stands' which you can use in your car. They are mounted to the window and can easily be taken off. I'd like to have one to take pics and make vids on the road but don't know which one and where to buy.. :confused2

What a pity!!!
a pity? Hell no, the car sounded awesome! That, and it had the best paintbrush / paintjob I have EVER seen on a car. I was wondering what car that was, but now it's been cleared. Thanks for letting me know :cheers:

Subaru Anda Zimand


I looked it up on the internet...seems there is only one Zimand?
Especially the paint job is great (although you can not see it on the pics below). I also like the exaust and the aggresive look it has. but then again, it's only my opinion. Here is what they wrote about it on a website: (http://pierrou.turboblog.fr)

La notoriété de la marque Subaru n'est plus à faire dans le domaine du rally avec plusieurs titres à son palmarès! Cette base est littéralement sublimée par un richissime homme d'affaire, M. Zimand, à l'origine de ce projet pour rendre hommage à sa femme, Anda.

Avec une base de Subaru WRX 2004 de 217chevaux d'origine, la préparation devait être à la hauteur. Pari réussi pour Zimand !!
Grâce au talent du designer Audrey Seguin, les lignes extérieures sont guidées par les optiques d'origine, accentuant d'avantages les lignes budibuldées de la Subaru. Ainsi, la prise d'air du capot à laissée place à un capot intègrant une colonne d'air afin de refroidir le moteur et compenser la prise d'air spprimée.

Une multitude d'accessoires ont été utiles afin de remodeler la carrosserie avec un kit carrosserie unique en polyester avec un brevet déposé pour les moules. Ainsi, la Subaru Zimand s'est également affublée d'un échappement original et très sport en inox en position centrale et réalisé
sur mesure par Zeeter.

La couleur noire mat fait le reste et met en valeur les formes et les changements de surfaces, pas besoin de décoration pour rester scootcher devant une telle réalisation. De plus, le noir tranche radicalement avec l'intérieur full cuir dans les tons de bleu...

En effet, l'intérieur de la Subaru "Z" est passé entre les mains de spécialistes qui ont imaginé et réalisé l'intérieur ainsi que la partie sono.
Ainsi, l'intérieur full cuir bi color habille remarquablement l'intérieur splendide de la Subaru aussi bien sur le tableau de bord que sur les sièges
Momo Speed 1.

Pour protèger la "Z", une alarme Cobra Alarme cobra est associée à une alarme antisatellitaire connex pour dissuader les éventuels voleurs...

Chaque sortie de la Subaru "Z" est remarquée, il faut dire que Zimand à faire appel à de véritables spécialistes du monde de l'automobile et du tuning.
Le résultat est unique et tout simplement époustouflant

For those interested I have uploaded my raw video from last years CannonballRun 8000. You can find it here:


http://www.megaupload.com/nl/?d=VSMHB8MT


8 minute video of parking lot showing Ferrari, Aston Martin, Lamborghini's, Porsches, M5s, M3s, Noble's, Bentleys and all sorts of nice sportscars as well as American pickup trucks doing some spinning.
Furthermore it shows the cars leaving the parking lot and hitting the streets of Brussels. You can see it ain't just the guys from Top Gear who have trouble leaving the parking lot with their low suspension cars :)
