Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

Why did they end the service at 8? It's the North Shore classed as a quiet country town?

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

My immediate family bought two X-series Falcons in the 1980s (it was a better deal than Holden at the time). Both needed extensive rust remediation several times throughout warranty, and even the dealer had new cars arrive on the lot with serious rust issues. Sounds like the CL and CM Valiant/Regal...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

I heard a Captiva taking off today. Very nice V6 sound. I was told the problem with the Holden Camira was an inherently good car with dynamics that were second to none at the time, but Holden couldn't bolt them together well enough and were still using paint technology from the HQ era. Slightly diff...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Just listen to the contrast in language the media is already using in relation to the new President saying what an achievement his victory has been, language they never used for newly sworn in President Trump.
It was more like how are we going to cope with this anomaly?
It's so blatant.

Bludger bendies. It seems the government wants them gone and it's trying to justify getting rid of them.

Young tradies here on the central coast. How do they develop that obnoxious face like the one I came across this morning working for my neighbour? This permanent sneer imprinted on his dial. Young Aussies are the most arrogant pricks in the world.

Re: Parramatta Road Bus Fire

That is the way I imagined it would work. similar to leasing a car - the finance company owns it, but you are responsible for all the operating costs. Guess the detail would be written into the operating contracts. As I understand, in the U.S, you don't have to repair or service a car that is lease...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

I can remember the days when there was a direct bus service from Glenorie to Eastwood via Pennant Hills Rd. Eastwood is now completely cut off from the North West by bus. I would imagine that those passengers who board 515 closer to Ryde, including those students at TAFE on Blaxland Rd, would be mi...

I bet developers would love to get their paws on Hyde Park and Wynyard Park. I bet the Liberals would allow it if not for the inevitable backlash.

Sydney CBD will always remain top dog by an immense margin, if for no other reason, the harbour attractions that surround it. A little cement wier won't cut it.
