Being mean to Hummer drivers

By 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.
