Jimi was born in 09.06.2007, and he has been checking out for the bigger toys...but maybe next year he will be taller...to reach for the handlebars...Jimi will have many to play around, if he will like ´em.
Annika didnt like the panel van that much, maybe i was driving too fast , and playing around too much, but i hope JIMI will like it!
In the Harley side, jimi still needs some 1/2 meters more of legs to controll the bike. :-)
but the attitude was right. thanks for Jussi halonen to take the picture.
The Ghia, is under contruction, i wanted to take the stereos away of it, and to put a new original iterior in it, change the colour as well, race wheels and a big engine...
its not that fast thing to do with loads of work, a 4 months old baby, and some other things to bother, well the Jimi-Kid, is not bothering that much, :-)
i desided not to get the van isnpected this year, its better and cheaper to do it in the spring. :-)
no taxes etc. The splitscreen is now in our cottage. and as you can see theres autumn in here.
check also my match race with santala, (the second time i drink Valtteri´s beer) in the youtube section...

I will pick up my "little piggie" from mantsala
to our country place, and start to fix it.
it was a museum piece,
but its not anymore... :-(
electric sunroof, recaro-seats,
fuchs wheels and a five speed...
...i hade so great time with this car, that it deserves to be in a better shape again! ...the biggest issue is the engine.
i made a clip of it, Jussi Jyranko with his split was the fastest vw in VW Open!
check out also cal look forum for details...
The Ghia is pretty good, better than i thought!
What it really needs, is some washing, waxing, new interior...and lots of POWER.
if you have new locks to the doors, i will be interested. :-)
In the evening i went to Heeba´s place, to bar-b-que party and see some VW drag DVD´s,
it was fun, thanks to Heeba!
What a weekend! first i took my Auto-craft heads, and some Porsche turbo brakes, went to Luftsick garage, to see what is happening...jyrki was testing PAUTER big block to his oval, huh...i need one too! then i drove to mäntsälä city, to meet Jussi Jyrankö and Pekka Laitinen.
Pekka came to pick up my Rothmans racer panelvan, after that we went to pick up my 61 ghia.
The ghia was better than i thought, and with giant amp, in the rear seat...huh. theres gonna be some serious rocking...
I made an order to TMI interior, to get new panels to the ghia etc. and i ordered a blue cover to the panelvans seat...
