In the UK, perhaps the same effect would be achieved with Max Bygraves?

Not motoring directly, but a local corner shop plays classic FM outside its doors to shoo off the kids.

Lola? wasn't that Ray Davies and the Kinks?

Dragging this thread BACK to matters automotive....

Lola has recently announced that it is going ahead with a programme to build a car to the 2008 Formula One rules, although no obvious customer for this exists.

I thought we were going to talk about the F1 Lolas of yore...

Dragging this thread back to Australian Chavs (Bogans is what they are called here) and their cars. The local chavs are doing very well in West Australia. We are having a mining boom, there is a dire shortage of tradesmen and they are earning a heap. We have cashed up Bogan/chavs buying flash top spec V8 utes and expensive new houses in good suburbs. They can buy anything except good taste. Meanwhile their mates who went to university are earning about half what the plumbers and bricklayers are getting.

A story in today's Terrorflag said that car-revving chavs were known locally as 'hoons' in Australia.

I wonder where they got that?

Hoon is supposed to be an abbreviation of hooligan however we all know that hoons are really boofheads who lair about.

It was certainly Hoons...or hooning around on a friday night (tyre doughnuts on any blacktop big enough) when I lived in NSW for 5 years.

Dalglish, I SINCERELY hope that you looked those lyrics up on the internet, and did not know it off the top of your head. :>)

HOWEVER, had they played the Kinks, they would probably have had a better class of Chav turning up for the free concert!

If Lola are building it then they have to enter it. As I understand F1 rules you can buy in almost everything except the chassis which the team must "design and build"

I wonder of the old offence of 'furious driving' is still on the statute books. Apparently causing wheelspin can constitute 'not being in proper control of one's vehicle', as does drifting or locking the brakes when stopping.

There is a valvebounce kid round here who always revs his noisy car to the red line. What's he trying to prove?
