A 4wd left a nasty dent in the side of my 'normal' passenger car the other day and it would appear to me the driver had difficulty parking his/her beast. I wonder how many other people have also had their cars damaged by 4wd owners who push there ridiculous oversized petrol guzzelling monsters into car parks they can't even fit in?

Hey, you want a 2 tonne off road weapon.... then how about leaving it OFF THE ROAD?!?!?!?! Get a real car and stop kidding yourself you need one of these monster shopping carts that most women can't drive!

Good on ya, my trucks a diesel guzzlin beast...................... get it right duh!

As for parking I've had more dings from cars hitting my car or motorbike, in fact I have never had a ding from a 4by.

As for your completely coherent and logical point about women drivers, every dent I have ever received were from blokes.

As for "stay off road", stay off the drugs mate and get real.

Gee I have had my vehicle damaged by some person pushing their shopping trolley into my vehicle. Guess I had better find a shopping trolley website to make a statement.

The responsible owners of 4WD vehicles are not the reason that shopping centre car parks are made so small. Why not complain to the centre management about the small spaces they leave in the car parks, be it 4WD or mini vans or whatever they are all big vehicles. The footprint on most large sedans is just as large as some 4WD and I can assure you that I have seen plenty of lilttle cars damage other little cars in car parks. No to mention shopping trolleys!

Why do you think that it is only the big vehicles that are driven by idiots - from your post it is obvious that they also drive small vehicles. Regards ExplorOz Team - David

David a very well considered response to StayOffRoad.

I have had paint from others on my 4by though, white on my silver Germerican when I was parked at a funeral. Obviously the "normal" car driver could not park.

Another time when I had red Hyundai paint on the wheels from when a lady decided to push mine sideways, fortunately pushing the back wheels. I was parked at the time then too!! I was fortunate it was a tray topper not the above mentioned or its predecessor with the aluminum body.

I am always wary of people who cannot drive straight into a park or reverse either. Most 4by drivers are well used to reversing trailers as well as their truck.

Perhaps StayOffRoad you should show a little less pique at others who may do other things and do as Pauline did, see the other side.

Well said David; especially you’re last comment.

This post of StayOffRoad’s is the typical thinking of the anti 4x4 morons – it is yet another good example of showing how biased, arrogant and incorrect that they are.

Personally I think the anti 4x4 brigade are no better than racists:

They both hate something, not because they have any genuine, valid or logical reasons but simply because they don’t like it.

Dear StayOffRoad,
What makes you think that women can't drive a 4wd ?
A bit sexist don't you think?
My wifes previous car was a Excel and it had dents all over it from carparks and being parked next to "normal" cars.
I don't have a motor boat so do you think that you could stop these fuel spilling craft from using the rivers.
Oh and while you at it, it would be beaut if you could get the shopping centres to make bigger parking spaces as it is a bugger to get into them!

Thanks

PS. What is your point of going looking for trouble?

Yep - I think he is making a very good point and I am sure that from now on we will see our fourbies as really just big four wheel motor bikes and take them to the bush on tandem trailers behind our Falcons. I am gunna look out this morning on the road and I reckon I will be lucky to see a fourby there after StayoffRoad raised such a good point.

Got hit by a tree last month, lets chop down all the trees, but don't let women drive the chain saw!!

Got hit by an unmarked police car last year, lets get rid of police cars, and yes it was being driven by a women!

Backed into a pole supporting a building a few years back, lets get rid of buildings, I'll let a women blow them up!

Mates missus reversed into my car on their property a few years back also, lets ban everyone except me from the road!

My level of inadequacy must be greater than average as my "road weapon" is about 3 tonne, but it guzzles diesel so I assume I am exempt from this morons tyraid!

Look pal, i drive what i want to drive and if that means a thumping v8 then so be it, if it happens to be a zeta (any one remember these) then i will also.

One reason i drive 2 ton oversized big tyred monster rather than a crumble bar on wheels is to get extra safety insurance from wankers like you. Wow! am I cute

If I rememnber rightly to go in reverse you had to turn the ignition backwards which got thye engine turning in reverse so you ended up with three or four reverse gears as well. I remember the old TV ad too where you just pulled up at the jetty got the fishing rod out then reached in and got the quick release front seat out and then sat down fishing FOR THE ARVO.We have so little time to enjoy our land

Sorry to spil your party Richard but they weren't the fastest in reverse. My 450cc Goggomobils operated on the same principle so theoretically their top speed in reverse would be 96kph. Never tried it, but I imagine it would have been interesting. Top speed on the Lightburn Zeta was somewhere in the mid 70s. The really interesting one to drive quickly in reverse would mave been the Messerschmidtt. It had only one rear wheel which means that going backwards would have meant the two back wheels would be pushing and steering the single front wheel. A guaranteed rollover if ever there was one."Live today as if there may be no tomorrow"

Wombat, wrong again!!
My old man had an Austin Champ (ex British army) back in the 60's. Rolls Royce motor and all that. No low range, but a 5sp gearbox with no reverse. A separate transfer case gave forward and reverse, so you could go flat out in reverse as well.
Ahhh those were the days, 100k flat out (speedo off the dial), 12mpg if you were lucky.

Gee.. I was gonna leave this well alone... especially 'cos everyone else seems to have covered the bases so well!!
But the thing is... the sexist comment has got me here!! Ok... StayOffRoad has stated that "MOST" women can't drive "these monster shopping carts" and I realise that most ain't all.. but did he take a survey on this??? does he have a percentage??? does he have a clue?? My other half has been driving for 18 years..... no accidents... thats NO accidents... and only one speeding fine.. and drives our Patrol both to the shopping centre and off road. We shared the driving 50/50 on Fraser, 50/50 at Crystalvale, 50/50 at Ormeau... she has driven mud runs at Ormeau, over fallen trees at the Forest, through the gorges at Nerang, and reverse parks it at the shops first time every time!

If StayOffRoad doesn't want his pride and joy scratched or dented, keep it at home!!!!!!!!!!!

Brian,

As my wife often comments after going shopping:

“They can’t even park a little car, how would they go trying to park a big car?”

And she’s not just referring to female drivers.

Some people regardless of what gender, just can't drive competently.

Hi Brian,

Nothing wrong with what you wrote. My wife is also a competent driver of a Patrol, including a large car - the car actually being wider and longer than the LWB Patrol is.
I was simply making the point that my wife who can park a large car, is amazed that some people (male & female) have so much trouble trying to park their little cars.
As you have indicated in your reply, it is wrong to make the statement: “Women can’t drive 4x4’s”, many of us know first hand just how well our wife’s can handle a 4x4.

Are we not taking his comments a bit too seriously. He was obviously just trying to wind us up.

He managed to get a shot in at everybody - women drivers, the poor (those who only have 1 vehicle) and anybody who has ever used a 4WD to go shopping. In fact, everybody on this forum. Not bad eh! The only target he's missed is the English rugby team.

PS The only problem I (& all of you, no doubt) ever have in a car park is when the 2 adjoining bays both have morons in them who DON'T PARK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BAY! Perhaps StayOffRoad fits into this latter category ;-)

Melissa,

I hope you arent driving when StayOffRoids takes to the open road. I am amazed that women can't drive, as I have seen one or two on the road on this side of the country and none of them have been dinting small cars in shopping centres. My Falcon even has a mirror on the back of the drivers side sunvisor, more evidence that it was intended for a woman to drive it.

I once did see, however, a MAN in a red Astra back out of a car park at Target(c) scrape the side of the car on his left and then back into a car behind him. Interestingly he slipped on a blonde wig and started talking in a high pitched voice which is obviously wher StayOffRoids stereotype came fromLaterally Literal

ROTFLMAO=Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Arss Off

This iteration excludes the "F" (for floor above) but we can assume that the author is rolling in the floor or some type of weight bearing surface.

The second "F" is more perturbing, in other forums it has been linked to "FAT" as in 'Laughing My Fat Arss Off' however I am not willing to assume this as fact, maybe its Furry, Funny, Furtive, Female, Fellow or any numbers of F-words, some which don't bear mention.

Stayoffroad you appear to have more hide than the tannery down the road..

But everyone is entitled to an opinion and I for one am happy if you are representative of the anti-four wheel drive lobby.

You didn’t say where you were from so it is difficult to form any substantial view on your analysis. After all if you come from a country area it might be reasonable to assume there will be a high number of four-wheel drives in the shopping centre car park.

No doubt you could clarify this and a few other points surrounding your observation. In particular, I and I’m sure others, would be interested to know specifically and on average:

The size of car parks in shopping centres,

What percentage of shopping centre car park spaces can the average four-wheel drive access,

What percentage of the number of cars in shopping centre car parks, at any given time, are four-wheel drives,

How many cars are dented in shopping car parks,

What percentage of dents can be attributed to four-wheel drives, and

The demographic representation of where these incidents generally occur.

No doubt the information will be at your fingertips, lest you be accused of simply being another one of the many 1,000s of ill-informed and ignorant persons when it comes to a view on four-wheel drives. I won’t go the male/female thing, as your main gripe seems to be four-wheel drives in car park.

Blame the driver not the vehicle. If a vehicle kills a pedestrian on a street do the police book the vehicle or the driver?

It is not the 4WDrives fault that your car was damaged but the drivers fault. Did you actually see that the vehicle responsible? or was it gone.

4WD vehicles in many cases are actually smaller in length and width than the commodore and falcon (which are the most common cars on the road. A Falcon wagon is actually longer than most full sized 4WD vehicles.

i must say that you have very large balls coming onto this site & attacking anybody & everybody,the only problem is that they hang down in front if your eyes & are attached to their conterparts,this seems to have obscuered your vission.
how do i know you have two of the male organs becauce you could not be that big a w****ker with 1.
iknow many female 4wd drivers who would drive rings around you , several whom are a1 4wd instructors , so i sujest next time you pull into a parking bay along side a 4wd that you park in the middle of the bay so that the poor 4wd driver can at least get out.

Treat him and other tossers like him with the contempt they deserve, they're generally incompetent drivers who blame the first thing they think off. He's probably a closet fourby owner.
Enjoy the peace of the bush Stuart, hopefully most of us act in such a way whereever we are, that we can keep doing the things we like doing most of.

Had this email sent to me this morning - probably appropriate timing

Driving to the office this morning on the motorway. I looked over to my right and there was a woman in a brand new MG doing 90 miles per hour with her face up close to her rear view mirror putting on her eyeliner!

I looked away for a couple of seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane still working on that makeup!!

It scared me (I'm a man) so much that I dropped my electric shaver, which, knocked the bacon roll out of my other hand. In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car using my knees against the steering wheel, it knocked my mobile from my ear, which fell into the coffee between my legs, causing it to splash and burn BIG JIM AND THE ROUND TWINS, causing me to scream, which made me drop the cigarette out of my mouth, ruined my shirt and DISCONNNECTED AN IMPORTANT CALL

Aw what the heck ,why the hell do you think I got that big shiny bull bar for. Anyway I like driving around for no reason in my gas guzzling monster truck with the 4ft tyres gettin 1 mpg ,stuffin down those 1/4 pound cheese burgers and throwin the non biodgradeale styrofoam containers out the window while Elvis the King plays on my 8 track sanyo cassette deck with my 12 gauge permanently in the back ready for emergencies ect.
It would solve all the problems by having special xtra lge parking spots right outside the liquor store/supermarket where all those disabled spots are that take up all the room
Bring back some common sense

Nice "Dennis Leary - Asshole (1994)" touch there ross.....

He throws those styrofoam containers "right out the side" and wipes his mouth with the American flag too. Just don't get caught by a cop doing any of these things.....

It's NOT a free country.. That's a fact too. Try doing the above, you will find out.
