There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

I don't even have a photo. :-[
A Mk1  and a Mk2 Consul wagon .. Going by what I've read, the Mk1 Wagons were special builds by Contract  coach  builders and another company  did a convertible and possibly one  coupe fast back version .

Kyrgios getting his ass whipped like the petulant little corksucker that he is deserves.
Not tall poppy syndrome either, just "can't stand the prick" syndrome.

Couldn't agree more. Him and his dickhead mate Tomic. They are a disgrace. The most Un-Australian sportspeople I can think of.  And I don't even like Tennis.

I just read the best quote about this clown, still smiling.

Cheers, Mike.

But the bit that get's me is that they're held up as our Great Hope to once again lead the World in tennis ???

They're the best we've got ???

I reckon I could find a couple of 10yo kids having a bash down at the local tennis courts that would wipe the floor with either of them :D >:D

Seem to be classic examples of reading too many newspaper stories about themselves & starting to believe that they must be s!@# hot - well, they're half right! :D

Should buff right out. Why would they auction that. Have seen a few like this. Some worse. Surely they don't sell.

Yep but 3 hours of listening to a recording of him saying goodnight dad on the home surround sound last night at midnight. Was only upped by my recording  of good morning Tom since 4am 😂

I'm beginning to really like Thomas's style

Also wondering is it natural like a chip off the ol block or has he been under the influence of others of late

I would have glad wrapped him into his bed while he was asleep    ;D   ... Vicks vapourub in the tooth brush is another good one   :angel:
Down load this sound from the ABC sound bites list     http://www.abc.net.au/science/scribblygum/sound/koalagrunt.mp3         ,  put a speaker under his bed and crank it up at 3 in the morning  ;D
