Found this internerd treasure via the Calais Turbo forums. Proof of reasonably intelligent life elsewhere? Although I'd skip on rolling the steed thru Maccas. ;) :D

See below for selected highlights.

Screw the Calais, I'm in love with my pushie!

Well, not really. Out of boredom the other day, I started stripping my old pushie and fixing it up.

I had a blast!

* You can strip, respray and rebuild one in a day
* A respray only takes 10 minutes and costs $5 in paint
* There is nothing on it you can't fix with a hammer and an allen key
* You can be as trashed as you like and ride your pushie
* Police can't defect it
* It comes stock with 21 inch wheels!
* ...and is manual too!
* it has no dodgy electrical system on it that when it breaks, either takes me spending hours poking around with a multimeter or paying some dodgy japanese guy with a gold tooth to come round, poke about with his multimeter and say "I not know probrem, that be free hundred dorrar"
* Spare bike parts are a dollar a dozen
* If you strip a pushie and leave it on your lawn, kids will remove it for you, and not charge you $20
* Pushies don't have a goddamn AFMs or CAS to break!
* You have absolutely no chance of pulling chicks on a pushie, saving you even more money!
* The govt. can't fcuk you in the **** at every turn for liscence money, insurance, rego, fines, transfer fees, petrol tax on your pushie
* My g/f deosn't hassle me 24/7 to drive my pushie, unlike my car
* If I want to go really fast, I just need a big hill, not $10,000
* If I get cleaned up on my pushie, I have nice big compo payouts to look forward to, not an $800 excess! Either that or crippling head injuries, in which case I won't care either way
* Wiggas won't debadge your pushie or break a $50 window to steal $2.50 in loose change and your ashtray
* A retrim is as involved and expensive as changing the seat, I can finally get that leather upholstry I've always wanted

Although having said that, I don't think I'll be trading in the cal anytime soon, I can't roll my lazy **** through the maccas drive through on it.

OK.. I have to ask... what were you doing reading the Calais Turbo forums?

A number of years ago when I was overly interested in doing things with
my car, I was a subscriber to a mailing list for discussion of
modification and racing of Toyota MR2s.

I wrote an account of a drag race I lost one day to a Hyundai Coupe,
prompting a number of people to ponder the kind of modifications
(nitro, big-**** turbos etc) that the Hyundai must have had in order to
blow me away like that.

My initial post: http://ftp.mr2.com/DIGEST/VOLUME1/1661.txt
And you can follow up the remainder of the discussion in the subsequent
digests:

http://ftp.mr2.com/DIGEST/VOLUME1/1662.txt
http://ftp.mr2.com/DIGEST/VOLUME1/1663.txt
http://ftp.mr2.com/DIGEST/VOLUME1/1664.txt
http://ftp.mr2.com/DIGEST/VOLUME1/1665.txt
http://ftp.mr2.com/DIGEST/VOLUME1/1666.txt etc

I think it was mildly amusing anyway, especially the followups as
people realised (eventually) that I wasn't driving my MR2 at the time.

Found it as a refering website in stats for the Wheels of Justice site. Suitably intrigued, I went and had a look. ;)

Hot Dogma came in pretty close as a "least worst".

I was quoting Tism lyrics.
I joined VoTSG but left after a disturbing discussion over Mazda rotary
engines.
Any truth to the rumour that RHB works or worked at Swinburne?
The Bass player was Jack holt, who is related *somehow* to Christopher
Skase, which may explain why Skasey never copped any **** from Tism.

I have the albums and CD's even have "Australia the Luck Cnut" with the
Ken D*ne cover art. Must be worth all of $10 by now.

I might be a cyclist, but at least I don't drive a Prado.

Ten years ago, the offending vehicle would have been a Volvo. Care to
comment?

I might drive a Volvo, but at least not whilst wearing a hat.
Nicker nicker nicker nicker,
Nicker nicker nicker nicker,
