molten plastic from leftover 9/11 jets?

Most of the time I leave my car unlocked with fishing and surfboards inside, windows down, radio on and keys in the ignition.
Yeah they'd never look in the ignition

This is the great advantage of driving a Camry bought from the wreckers.

Correct Foamingham.

Except this one came from the side of the road.

And I also think it confuses a casual, opportunistic thief....something seems not right about it, in the way that certain brightly coloured animals and plants in nature advertise themselves but are poisonous to predators.

It's a kind of camouflage.

And as far as the professional car thief is concerned.....they'd be down on their luck to look twice at a Camry of any vintage.

My mate had a shit box Ford of some description and was forever trying to get it stolen (worth $300, insured for $2k).
Used to leave it unlocked near train and ferry stops, with petrol and lighter on the passenger seat.
One day a friend borrowed it and locked it, within 3 hours somebody used a jemmy to break in and stole one shoe from each of the three pairs in the boot.

Nearly drowned. Be in hospital till his lungs clear.

Someone else died at Rocky Pt, they haven't released the ID yet, I am dreading it

I usually take a shorty and a log, or a shorty and a step up. Leave one in the car.
You have 3 wives??
He said log, not dog !

Northern Beaches Council lift the beach booze ban for The Australian open of Surfing & plan to turn the beach front into a beer garden.
Some may have issues with this but I say Oi Oi Oi. + the smokers will have glass bottles to put there butts in, a win for the enviroment

There is a lot of froth on swell net about swell bomb heading our way, looks very iffy, onshore medium swell. Maybe if the wind backs off in the evening.

Will they have live on Corso betting as well. Awesome!! It's going to be the Melbourne Cup of surfing. Drunk fatties in tight dresses throwing up on the sand to the backdrop of onshore 1ft dross. Surfing finally gets with the program. I suggest the last post is played before every event.
