How do you drive a car into a shopping mall?

By gungsuperstar - 12 June 2013 37

Belco mall car park

Help me Riot Act!

I frequent the Belco mall every 3 or 4 weeks… but this has been confusing me for months.

To the extent that I’ve measured the cars. I’ve measured the door ways. I’ve tried to assess the angles between the door ways and this location. They can’t have just been driven through the nearest doorways, they couldn’t have squeezed through the obstructions (such as escalators). Nor could they have been driven through the doorways at either end of the mall, because the walkways aren’t wide enough to drive through.

I’m buggered if I can figure out how the hell these cars got into the mall!

The best conclusion I’ve come up with is that they were assembled there. But I believe this to be reasonably unlikely 😛

Any ideas?

What’s Your opinion?

Often the automatic doorways which people use are part of a larger hinged door which can be used to bring in bulky goods, such as cars.

Also just because one route is impossible, doesn’t mean that there aren’t others which are much easier to get a car through. Keep in mind, the people who bring those cars into the malls have the option of using non public area’s if required.

You could ask Clifford Moss. On 12 August 1992 he drove a 4WD into the Great Hall of Canberra’s Parliament House. I believe he had previously done the same in Adelaide.

Somebody should have told that to the nutbag that tried to get a 4WD through the foyer of Parliament House. Now THAT was an epic moment in federal politics.

They use a flux capacitor and the GDE to get up to 88 and time travel to the day before the doors were installed its pretty simple really.

Ever since seeing the Blues Brothers for the first time, my childhood desire to drive in a shopping mall and wreak havoc has never waned.

Aside from pleasures of the flesh, I can’t think of anything more fun! 😛

I believe the ones near KMart are brought in through where Aldi is. The bollards appear to be removable. The rest is just moving some furniture out of the way….

Now that depends on who you fill said shopping mall with. I can suggest a few MLAs … a few hundred cyclists …

The only other thing that would make you feel like a rebel, or someone from the mid 20th century is drive around Garema Place and the rest of the malled up bits of Civic.

You can’t do 88 do the GDE.

This post is stupid, the only question to be asked is “Where are the key, how much fuel’s it got?”

They take the roof off and drop it in by helicopter. Obviously.
