Time for a new car!

Dam cops

This morning I got pinged by one of those lovely tax gatherers doing 112 on the open road, just over the brow of a hill and wam, another $80 bucks.

I drove from 15yrs to 30 before I got my first ticket. A year ago I lost my licence on demerit points with not one ticket more than 3km/h over the 10km/h threshold on the open road.

Dam it, I am going to sell the ute and get a car with CRUISE CONTROL".

I am so pissed off with myself for getting done -again! If I was actually gunning it and being stupid I would understand. Dam, Dam, Dam!

If I need the room of 4wd Double Cab Ute then what sort of Car/wagon should I get? or do I go for the holden crew cab ute?

Anything so long as it has cruise control!

firts make sure you really do need the room in a double cab, then that you need a ute!

If what yoyu need is plenty of passenger room and a good sized boot that will tow shmething heavy, try a Fairlane Ghia - plenty of room, cruise control, climate control, great seats, and better on fuel than a 4wd.

Otherwise, indulge your phantasy and get the least car and the fastest boat you can

I dont think it is a new car you need, I think you need to just stop speeding. 112? Holy Crap!

Be safe

Haha I think you should stop thinking that 110 is how fast you can go. My sister got done for going the same and she kept complaining that it was only 2km/h faster and that it was unfair, but in reality its 12km/h over and that really can be the difference between killing someone and just injuring them.

I've never had a ticket but only because I was lucky, I used to go 130-140 to overtake cars when I was a stupid teenager lol.

Well with petrol now hitting $1.70 a litre I might be reconsidering the size thing......

Heard int he weekend that the Holdens' whilst V sexy are also V thirsty.

The whole idea of being in Diesel was so that wouldn't be able to go too fast.... and for such a long I time was soo good and varefull honest, I was just in a wee bit of a hurry and ....

Hey lesson learned, and thanks for telling me off, cause I needed it. - As opposed to feeling sorry for myself. LOL!
