After voting today with my parents, we went to do some grocery shopping. I waited in the car. Whilst I was waiting, a HQ ute drove past, then I noticed the right rear wheel was sticking out a bit far, and was going further out. 10m later half the axle, still connected to the wheel was just rolling down the road next to the ute at 40kph. He pulled over about 20m away from me, and I had to run into the shop where my mate was working just to show him the HQ's demise. But this was not the end. On my way out of the carpark, I pointed out the ute to my parents with much laughter as we drove up to it. The 3 bogans in a "fully sik bro" VL commie to see what the deal was, cut in in front of me doing a ewie and I had to hit the brakes. I just looked at the bogans, then the car, laughing my head off. On my way home I noticed the bogans right up my arse comming up to an intersection, spoiling a ton of large dents in the bonnet of his fully sik machine. The speed limit after the intersection went up to 60 from 40, and they were off, flying up my side and out onto the dirt in their crap box. Unfortunately with my parents in the car, my reaction was limited to flashing the lights and a one fingered salute. Its times like that I wonder the mentallity of these people. Despite the fact my car (see sig) would obviously crap all over their hunk o junk, they still go "my car is so fully siker then your falcon crap" and take off spraying rocks all over my bonnet and leaving me in a cloud of oily smelling smoke, tearing off around a blind corner at 100kph, putting other road users at risk. Is it just me, or do some people beleive that these such commowhores have below average intellegence? They are taken in by gimiky marketing, beleiving their VL is a v8 supercar, therefore having to thrash the crap out of it, and be a threat to other road users, to make it look "sik".

I was wondering though, how come you hardly ever see bogans in a falcon, thinking they own a v8 supercar? Which brings me to my point. I beleive holden big wigs and advertising gurus aim their add at, well, below average intellect people, dumbarses, that any commodore, is a lean mean street machine. Drive one because every other bogan does, look like a tool, because its the "in" thing to do.

But alas though I do have some mates who drive commodores, and are genuinely nice blokes, who know that their cars aren't performance machines, and drive and act accordingly. With all respect due to holden users whom surf these forums, car enusiasts like yoursleves obviously know that these add campaigns are hollow, and do not portray the facts that a stock family sedan doesn't have such performance. You are the cream of the crop and make an effort to make your car stand out from the crowd, therefore I salute you to the work you have put in, and if I see your car in a carpark, I wont get my keys out and do 600 bucks worth of damage, I'll go respect, and walk away, unlike this ever growing crowd of bogans.

I'm sure this also happens the other way around (ie ford bogan with similar intellect keying nice commo) but from what I've seen, to a much lesser extent.

I'm just having a bit of a rant and probably didn't make much sense or much of a point, I've got some nice stone chips to touch up tomorrow btw, but can some holden users share us some run ins you've had with the other side.

Have you ever noticed how many Holden fans all wear the same shirts or jackets. You know, the same colour as Skaiffe's team colours. Red and white. I tend to think that the holden shirt, is the new flanette shirts. All they need now is the Ugg boots and the ciggy's up their shirts. Come to think of it, I've seen heaps looking like that. I think most of them are Collingwood supporters as well.))

I think after the v8 loss they feel somehow inadiquite and have something to prove, that they can be dickheads.

I don't like to generalise or sound biassed, but the shopping centre where I work has all types of wankers "fanging" around in the car park. Cars that come to mind: Commodores (VLs, VNs and VSs) and Lancers. To be completely honest, I've probably only noticed two (fifty if you include taxi drivers) wankers in Fords driving at disturbing speeds in the car park. Why oh why? Tonight (technically last night), I saw two VLs putting the arse-end out around a 10km/h roundabout. I just don't understand the logic of these people.

Anyway, back to your post... It must have been very amusing to see a car lose its wheel like that! Too bad there are stupid people who can continue to drive a bucket of bolts that risks other people's lives on our very own roads.

I see Ford's like this too, as a matter of fact there's an XF down the street.

But the Ford bogans ARE outnumbers by the Holden bogans. I guess they just see Holden winning pretty much everything V8 supercar wise for most of the 80's and assume Holden must be better. Never mind the fact these cars are so far from stock it's not funny.

Ditto here, some of you may remember the idiot neighbour of mine who smashed LovinmyEB's drivers side mirror, sadly he's a Ford nut (drives two V8 XDs), but I seriously doubt if he has a IQ higher then double digits!

But although you do get idiots like this driving most makes of cars, in my experience, there does seem to be a higher number of Commodores driven like this then any other make/model.

Me, personally, I'll respect people for their ride, unless:
  • They constantly bullshit - "My stock Ecotech V6 could flog a Ferrari!" or
  • They pull up next to me at a set of lights where their lane ends just after the intersection - if they want to get in front of me, they're going to have to work at it to get in front of me and take my lane

Now I've calmed down a bit, and got back to rational thinking, I don't particually care. In a local town like where I live, I'm sure the cops allready know who he is and are keeping an eye on him, so if he as much as breathes too fast, he's got no license or car from hoon laws. But I was thinking of getting his license plate, and giving crimestoppers a call to a drug tip off ;). But unfortuantely it diverts cops from getting more twits like himself.

I'm actually hoping to get pulled over by the local cops, so then they see that I'm an entusiast not a hoon. Everytime I pass a cop car I give them a bit of a wave/acknowledement, so they get used to the car and me driving around sensibly, so they won't bother giving me a hard time. Unfortuantely it'll mean didly squat when I move back into college at brissie, but they'll be plenty of wannabe's in lancers with a 2Lt golden circle pinapple juice tin as a muffler to divert their attention.

while I was walking the dogs to the shops today I had a similar incident. This was a late 80s RX-7 doing at least 80 in a 50kmh backstreet, squeeling and drifting like there was no tommorow. They did this past a park with a children's playground.

and we wonder how accidents happain.
