A look at the Steve Irwin ride

By johnboy - 5 December 2008 23

By popular request poptop has sent in these pictures of the remarkable Steve Irwin Ride as seen outside the Tuggeranong Hyperdome Woolworths in May 2007.

Slideshow below. I particularly like the “In memory” placque.

What’s Your opinion?

Do we have a prize for THE most predictable post of the year?

I belive they do. Their tag line is “All the traction of fibreglass with less than a quarter of the shock absorbtion of regular tyres!”

Although, now that I think about it, I can’t lane filter in either, so I might keep my bike. Do they make “croc hunters” for bikes?

Yeah but hardly a comparable vehicle to a falcondore. I think I would prefer the fibreglass ‘cruiser :o)

Hang on a second, are we arguing over a fibreglass car!?! I didn’t realise Steve Irwin had his own tyre brand. I might pop into Bob Jane and pick up a set of croc hunters.

A Falcon or Commodore ute are both Australian built alternatives.

Doesn’t get more Australian then cars made by overseas companies. Just look at Ford and Holden.

BJ Steve. Sounds like a new mascot for the Brumbies.

I hope your kids are +15 years

My kids even call that ride “blow-job Steve”

Oh dear !

What were they thinking, even the man himself was still here. The facial expression belongs to something inflatable.

In Memory of Commercialism?

Did it have the squarking sound of the Common Bindi (Bindus Horridus) coming out of a speaker on it? 🙂
