Hey Herman, that's great man.  I see you already know how to resize a photo before you post it.  Man, you and I are friends already!  O:)

Just kidding!  =;

Yup, there are a bunch of good guys here, but then again there are some assholes too (I resemble that remark).  Ya just have to pick and choose which is which!   =;

You'll also notice that we have another wagon racer.  WR169 and his son also race a Malibu wagon here in the states.  Maybe you two can give each other pointers.  \:D/

Anywho, glad to have ya aboard.  Pull up a chair and grab a coke or a beer and chime in anytime! =;

Welkom heten Pinkerd!!!  I hope you enjoy your stay here.  Just out of curiousity, how did you hear about us?  Where do you live in Holland?  I used to spend a lot of time there.  The hotel I stayed as was right beside the World Court building in Den Haag.  Would usually go to Scheveningen to watch the beach activity and then grab something to eat and go window shopping to check out at all the girls shaking their whatevers at you.  Pretty country over there and I love the food and beer.

Ok first of all, thank you all for your warm welcome.

@ Ken0069, about rezize a foto, I will try next time (just a problem of age) =P~

@ gdmii, I came on your website through our website where we ask people to vote to get our dragstrip back ( www.dragracedr88.nl). I live in a small village under the smoke of Amsterdam (even more girls shaking their whatevers at you).

Again thanks for your welcome and I love also the Tech Articles, they are very usefull!

You misunderstood Herman!  That was praise as you did DO IT RIGHT!!  Most don't get it at first but YOU did!  So congratulations for knowing what to do to begin with.  And what I mean about this is that the picture shouldn't overrun the page, ie, you should NOT have to scroll side to side  to see it all.  

Anywho, I wasn't criticizing you, just letting you know you did that correctly! =;

Welcome Herman. Them are some nice looking rides. Looks as though you feel, if it's not fast enough to scare you, It's not fast enough. You will fit right in here.
