Parking Gungahlin style

This one in from Paul:

Caught this one up at Magnet Mart at Gungahlin on the weekend.

Could not believe my eyes, as you can see its very deliberate and I know that no one had parked badly on either side…….

Got an image of Canberra (not necessarily of parking) you want to share with the world? Email it in to images@the-riotact.com .

What’s Your opinion?

Haven’t seen a Countach in Canberra, but there is a De Tomaso Pantera about. And if I owned that, I sure as hell wouldn’t be parking it within a bull’s roar of ANY other car…

Speaking of hot on 4 wheels, was following a Ferrari on Monday night – dad showing off a bit to the kid in the passenger seat, blipping the throttle here and there. Lots of snarl and crackle. But when he went through the tunnel near APH he really hit it. Glorious sound…

If its a yellow Pantera I know the mechanic that started its ground up restoration.Well assuming theres only one in Canberra

No its not useful information or even interesting. This seemed the perfect spot for it.

I havent seen a countach for some years but based on hazy memories would dispute its a wide car. Apart from that your newsletter sounds spot on. Ive been using the same logic to argue for a third lane for “us” on most highways for sometime. The real rulers of this country just deserve better.
.

Granted they’re not as wide as the mucielagos and diablos of the modern era – those things are ridiculous – but in absolute terms the countach was still pretty wide. Cars with wide/shortish wheelbases and relatively wide tires are also really difficult to park nose-to-curb. Which further supports the argumen for special parking spaces.

Actually they’re all about the same – 2000/2040/2040. The internet, it’s full of things like facts!
