“Awesome” driving by a Silver VN Commodore @ Chisholm…

View Larger Map

Last Friday on my way home from work I took my normal route back to Chisholm. After the roundabout turnoff on the Monaro I got stuck behind a silver VN Commodore sitting in the right hand lane doing 70km/h up the hill in an 80km/h zone with no one in the left hand lane on Isabella Drive.

As a result I used the left hand lane and overtook said person as he wasn’t doing the limit and the left lane was empty. I got 50 metres up the road before said person decided to take offense to my driving. Somehow I had taken a piss on his precious bit of road and he didn’t like it.

Said person then decided to floor it to catch up to me clearly breaking the speed limit in the process. He then tailgated me, flashing his high beams on and off repeatedly to blind me in my rear vision mirror and then proceeded to pull up next to me in the left hand lane giving me the finger….what the? Perhaps he had just overdosed on Roids?

The idiot then turned left at the next roundabout… Why was he in the right hand lane to begin with?

Perhaps I should have slammed on the brakes so he smashed into the back of my ute or followed him home and put a brick through his window/face?

What do Rioters suggest we do with such moronic Canberra drivers on our roads?

We used to pay a quarter to pile into the back of someone’s “truck” in California (they found it hilarious if the Aussies called them “utes”).

It was the best fun cruising along those LA freeways with our hair blowing in the wind. Nobody seemed to care at all. It was especially nice if you were sardined in next to somebody special.

I know it would have been nasty if we’d had an accident, but when you wrap people in cotton wool they miss a lot of highs as well as the obvious lows. I’m sure that’s why some people jump out of aeroplanes and so forth.

On he topic of the road . . .
yesterday, coming back from woden heading towards Tuggeranong, we got caught up in a very long pile up which is unusual for the weekend And it was a one lane road.
At the front it was a white Ute, which was going 10km/hour or so. because it was so slow, We thought it was going to breakdown or had something fragile in the back. after a long time, we got to a set of traffic lights and the Ute stopped at the lights. We changed lanes and so when we got up to it we saw that in the back of the Ute was . . .

6+ SO INDIAN CHILDREN SITTING CALMLY AND HAVING THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES
wth?
i thought they would have caught public transport like normal people would do
i wonder if they got caught?

I saw that too!!!! I thought there was a lot more than 6 children haha… it looked like about 3 families… but I didnt get a really good look. They went past me on Athlon Drive near Red Rooter.

A few cars behind it, a car even had it’s hazard lights on, like the way “wide load” trucks have “warning” cars before and after it. I have no idea if he was with them, but he was Indian as well.

Funny things is I’d seen about 3 cop cars (not together) just minutes beforehand… unfortunately none of them seemed to be heading towards where these idiots were. I hope they got busted!

or should i say unfolded?

don’t judge mini drivers by the size of their cars, they aren’t all jockeys…

ande some are very large and tall men with a very short fuse…

I’m not surprised, if they have to fold and unfold themselves just to get into/out of their cars.

I think we should be grateful to live in a society where the worst road rage (primarily) entails the finger, swearing, beeping, flashing lights and perhaps rabid tailgating and the occasional facetiously blown kiss. I like that fact that I can hurl moderate abuse other drivers (and they can reciprocate) without the risk of either party getting their heads blown off. I lived in the USA for a while (southern states) and everyone sure was reeeeaaaaal polite on the roads; because everyone was armed to the teeth. People would commit the most terrible driving atrocities and everyone would just smile and wave … smile and wave ….

The series one VN is also quicker than the series two VN, for some strange reason that escapes me at present.

I think they detuned the V6 in the series 2 because they felt it had a bit too much power for the average driver. My old man had a VN and I thought it was the best when I was a kid. That thing was a weapon. Not the best looking commodore ever made but still a great car. I remember at the time going from a VL to a VN felt like the difference between a cessna and a 747.

another vote for blowing kisses –

I had myself and two young ladies doing this to a particularily irate crazy biatch in a black honda next to us who couldn’t decide whether to give us the finger, the pinkie or both. She looked as if she was having hand spasms and even funnier the pinkie gensture as we doing the speed limit and driving in a very casual considerate manner (of course!)

Plenty of ranting from her vs plenty of laughing from us after she disliked us indicating and then using “her” lane after pulling in with a nimitz of space available.

I find these people very amusing 🙂

Well, I’ve implemented measures against night-time tailgaters. I put some of those reflectors on my spare tyre mount. Boy, they’re effective! The tailgaters roar up, stuff their nose in for a few hundred metres, then drop back in annoyance as their headlights are reflected back at them. Why is it that tailgaters haev those new, over-bright headlights?

As soon as I read this I thought, “Eureka!” I begged Mr Granny to get some for me, but alas, to no avail. He said he thought it was illegal. Well, heck, so was tailgating last time I looked.

As for road-ragers, you can wait for them to have to stop for a traffic light, get out and pull them out of their cars and kick them a bit, or you can laugh at them and shoo them on their way. And put them on rate the plate, I guess, as it’s a bit of a release, pity it can’t be a bit more official.

People think a VN is a piece of crap because its an old commodore. It produces somewhere around 140kw but the thing is that it uses the power well because it is so bloody light. It doesn’t have all the airbags, safety cells and all the excess fat that comes with modern cars. I think for this reason it is still the quickest stock V6 commodore.

What canwe do?

Execute them during half-time at Raiders games thus setting an example to other shit drivers.

Oddly I was walking through Chisholm a few hours ago and a silver Commodore drove past with an idiot in the drivers seat, and proceeded to beep his horn as he drove past me. Odd. Not sure what model it was.

Are you female? If so, there’s your answer. Bogans seem to think that beeping at members of the opposite sex will cause them to become attracted to them.

You can buy a fully functioning VN for about a grand and they go like cut cats. that’s why they are the choice of young bogans.

Hehe this guy was an old Bogan. Perhaps he had just had a bad week and one too many sherbets before getting behind the wheel to drive home.

I forgot to mention the I saw the same driver cut off people trying to merge from the Mugga Lane turnoff earlier on up the Monaro.

It was a shame that the speed van wasn’t there that day on Isabella Drive as it quite often is.

Pity the AFP’s latest toy wasn’t in the area.

Black VE Commodore UTE, with all the bling – and a lot of red and blue lights.

Probably pay for itself in a month.

Yep I saw it the other day at night… holy hell it’s lit up like a christmas tree…. even alternating red and blues on the rear view mirrors.

There’s also a Green VE SS ute with red and blue lights optioned on it…

VN Commodore must be the weapon of choice for bogan drivers, I’ve seen so many lately doing stupid things (possibly even seen this specific one but you tend to lose track after seeing so many). It’s not just confined to VNs, I did see a guy in a late model Ford Fiesta I think complete with “racing” stripes on the roof/bonnet trying to spin the wheels in the dirt carpark at Stromlo MTB track (obviously the safety of the pedestrians and cyclists in the carpark were of no concern to this mental midget) and also a Gemini whose driver had obviously got his ambitions mixed up with his abilities and managed to smash into the side of the mountain and then into a large drainage ditch as he (presumption of gender here) was attempting to descend Honeysuckle Creek. Maybe the latter was Mr CAPITAL LETTERS that posted on here the other day about how misunderstood car hoons were.
