Being mean to Hummer drivers

johnboy 31 July 2008 49

Pictures doing the email rounds. This Hummer was apparently parked near the police station on London Circuit.

Surely they meant to use a question mark!

Bah, the H3 isn’t even a real Hummer. It’s built on the same platform as a Chevrolet Colorado, it’s basically a pick-up truck dressed as a Hummer and fitter with a cruddy 4 speed auto. If I wanted a big petrol guzzling AWD to get through the peak hour fast, I’d get one of these http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASLAV

Funnily enough you can buy and register an ASLAV.

A Hummer ain’t a Hummer unless it has a .50cal on the roof.

yeah, you’re right johnboy, not having fun. used to, all four-five years i visited the site, and posted a couple of times in that whole time. but not lately – it’s become a bit like what people on here say about all bar nun – it used to be a good place until everyone, including the million dollar bogans started going. ok, i was wrong about zooming in, but maybe not about the legality, i’m sure there’s something in the privacy act about publishing people’s details which does make it different for those responsible for this site from it being publicly available in the car park, but the hummer guy didn’t mind so it’s all good, but that’s all it was, a warning…. so in the interest of me still being able to have fun, i’m outta here – but i’m sure you guys won’t miss me.

We’ll miss you, Jessica.

It’s the vibe, yeah?

Love your work HummerBoy – hope you disputed the parking ticket 🙂
BTW – just want to say props to you for using a 4WD the way it’s meant to be used – glad you didn’t get the Hummer solely as a status symbol or to compensate for anything else…

Where did you leave you car when you got the photocopy made? Unless there’s one in your ‘car'(‘car’ expressed in the nicest possible way).

Parking ticket is valid from 8:30am, I arrive around 8am. Plenty of time to stomp upstairs, wait for the copier to warm up, stomp back downstairs, stick it to the window, look at it and grin all before 8:30.

it’s only a hummer ’cause no-one ever taught it the words.

That’s true. I have never been tailgated by a hummer either! I think I am beginning to like hummer drivers very much.

: )

That is the funniest poke at authority I have seen for ages.

Now while a Hummer isn’t my cup of tea at all, I cannot recall being tailgated by one driven by some crocodile dundee wannabe through suburbia.

Something tells me that the only d*ckhead here is the bloke who left the sign in his car, as all he has done is brought attention to himself that will no doubt incur the further wrath of the brown bombers. The only reading that will get done is the additional tickets he will get (i.e. 1 minute over time, one wheel parked on a line etc etc)

You would say that’s an Australianism? Please.

That is one of the best statements I have heard in a long time. People choose their car (and partner) for their own reasons. I think the same also applies to sport. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned ….. when you say her team sucks. Hummer becomes a mobile doghouse 🙂

Australianisms: Never criticise a mans choice of partner or car….

Sorry to hear about your Paseo (not me). Yes, it really needs a reversing camera even though the reversing sensors do a pretty good job. I did say no car was perfect. Doesn’t help if the driver does make use of the sensors. Drivers are not perfect either. You get used to triple checking your mirrors before doing anything.

On the tar it is pretty much your average suburban 4WD to drive. Did they let you take it offroad during the test drive? I doubt it. Not many 4WD’s can traverse the Merricumbene Fire Trail in standard trim like I have. The review on caradvice.com.au sums up my experience pretty well. This review compared “a bog stock, straight off the showroom floor, Hummer H3 Luxury” against “heavily modified off-roaders [which] included a Holden Jackaroo, a Holden Rodeo, a Toyota Hilux, a Toyota Landcruiser SWB, a Mitsubishi Canter 4×4”. Their summary was, “the H3 is a true go-anywhere machine” and “At the end of our trip, the Hummer H3 had gone higher, farther and easier than anyone else present”

PS: honest guy, paid the repairs, no arguments.

A Hummer tried to reverse over the front of my little Paseo. That was interesting. Of course the driver had not a hope of seeing my car out his rear windows when my roof was lower than the bottom of the window…

Good on HummberBoy for expressing frustration in an amusing fashion. I salute you.

It’s also better than the time I was observing the Magistrates Court for Uni and saw the case of a bloke who stalked and assaulted an inspector.
