formal transport

An Exercising Passerby has sent this in:

A group of 5 young men queue to make their appearance at their Year 12 formal ….

Very Eco-friendly on their scooters!

So much respect. Wish I’d thought of that back in the day.

Much classier than the Chrysler.

Mind you, anything would be.

But not as cool as your Hyundai Getz.

I drove myself to my year 12 formal in my Dad’s poo brown coloured 1974 Toyota Corolla.

I wasn’t cool.

The irony is that if you did that today, you’d be a stone cold legend.

What would’ve been cool is if they would’ve just passed the waiting cars. Then their choice of mode of transport would’ve suddenly not seemed so silly anymore.

I got passed by a guy on a bicycle as I was queuing to get into Corinbank last weekend. Thought that was cool. (Though he was very sweaty from cycling up the mountain in the afternoon heat, so cool is probably the wrong term here.)

What makes you so sure they aren’t dating each other?

When I learnt to drive even being seen near a Datsun 120Y marked you as a terminal loser. These days the 120Y is considered cool.

Seems dangerous to me. Those lads have no bodywork protection if they wrap themselves around a power-pole at high speed on the way to the formal.

In 20 years time everybody will remember the scooter riders, maybe not so much the Chryslers.

If class was solely a measure of build quality then I would choose the Hyundai before the Chrysler for my formal chariot.

Obviously no imagination,stilts or penny farthings and they would’ve had street cred.

Strange, this. This waiting kinda negates the advantage of scooters zipping past all the limos?

I dunno, but I’ve always though that being carried into the event in a litter upon the shoulders of some of the teachers would be THE way to arrive in style at any formal.

Obviously future PhD candidates at ANU who have chosen not to procreate early in life and save money to pay for their theses. Smart boys.

I tried catching the bus to mine, it was even meant to stop right out the front of the National Museum, but the bastards skipped that stop because of the formal.
