cough 2 F40's..., surprised those lazy GTO owners didn't turn up...

I saw a black GTO on Hoddle St around 9:45pm, with 60th Anniversary stickers on.

australia the lucky country run by idiots and their dumb policies

You were right the first time. We are a lucky country. That so many can afford "regular" exotics despite their exorbitant price, proves it. Dozens on Ferraris on Lygon does too. Here's to free markets, enterprise and hard work. :drink:

The phrase originated in a book written in the early 1960s by historian Donald Horne.  In the first line of the last chapter of his book, Mr Horne said this: “Australia is a lucky country, run by second-rate people who share its luck.”  That is hardly heaping praise on the nation, unless one takes it literally and applies it to the people who “run” Australia from Canberra and the state capitals.

saying "australia is lucky" literally means just that.

They got lucky settling in a piece of land abundant in natural resources. it was never meant to be a praise to the people living in it. but then again whats the point of living in a "lucky" country when cost of living is relatively so high lol
