Holden Gemini Police Car

By 18 June 2010 9

Has anybody else seen the Holden Gemini (maybe a TE model?) around Belconnen that is painted up as a cop car? My brother said that it used to be Constable Kenny Koala’s transport, but I have no idea if that’s true.

I’ve only got close enough once to read the badge painted on the side once and I vaguely recall it saying something about a pizza place – possibly Little Chef? I could be making that up though. My googling/yellow page-ing has not turned up results and I’m keen to find them and possibly order some food.

So does anybody out there know of this car and know anything about it?

Yep it’s Little Chef Cafe in Belconnen.
They’re on Nettlfold St and their website is http://www.littlechefcafe.com.au/

…and it is located here.

Almost always parked out the front. I don’t have any specifics, but I doubt that it used to be Kenny’s car, since they actually paint them like “real” cop cars, and this one wouldn’t look out of place in Hazard County.

It is painted as a black and white US style police car. Ive seen it in Mckellar frequently.

Always surprises me when a clearly-labelled advertising-mobile such as this is driven badly/aggressively/too fast/too anything … what better way to lose business at a far greater rate than the advertising itself will add?

At the risk of sounding like a really bad driver, I have wanted to run that little F**KER of the road for a while and i have stopped being as courteous to him as I am to 99.999% of the time to other drivers. He does not indicate or look where others are when he is driving and sometime nearly causes accidents.
