Thumbs down my CRASH in my VY Commodore

My VY is now a write-off. It all happened when I became distracted from the road. It was a very hot day and the sweat was pouring off my face. As I turned the radio on, I watched the electric aerial go up, while I though about Holdenís priorities of an electric aerial over air conditioning.
I then become further distracted as I had to manually wind down the window because it was getting really hot now. When I moved my hand back from the winder, it got caught in the big ugly add-on cruise control block which I had optioned. Me and Hazzie (My car) went off the road and Poof went the airbags which shattered the windscreen on me and knocked me harder than the tree I slamed into.

I sat listening to my alarm go off which got me wondering why I even bought the alarm. By the time people optioned to be level with standard-Falcon features, they canít afford to buy anything to have in the car worth stealing, and the alarm wouldn't stop any intruders main purpose anyway, which would be to smash the ugly beast to pieces!


I HOPE THIS WILL NEVER ONEDAY BE A REALITY AS A RESULT OF HOLDENS POOR JUDGMENT OF FEATURES AND DESIGN.

I presume that last quote means this story is not true but merely a dig at Holden's VY. I don't know what to say.

True or not you should be concentrating on the road and not looking at the aerial going up:hrm:
