mervin the cortina
1980 – 2001
mervin was tragically killed last night by a magna with a date with fate.
last night on the 12/04/01 mervin was parked along Lower North East Road out front of its loving owner’s residence when a great tradegy took place. A magna managed to thump it a good 5 mtres along the road and up the gutter into the next door neighbour’s brick fence, where reminents still reside, (actually reminents still reside along the road, on the footpath, down the drain, across the road and in a poor wrecker’s yard).
the owners of the magna are alive and well.
mervin unfortunately will not be joining us for a very very long time, (i hear mervin’s gone to the zoo). despite desperate attempts to find mervin’s boot and fuel tank, (massive kinks in the roof and the doors completely folded over one another didnt help either) it has been declared a loss and time of death approximated at 10.30pm 12/04/01.
survived by it’s loving owner of 4.5 years, darren wright, mervin’s memories will be kept in cycle for as long as there is someone who will listen.
“mervin was a good car, mervin was reliable, consistant, didnt whinge much and battled on like a real trooper” darren wright was quoted to say. he also went on to say “i remember when i first bought that beautifil car, i went n took it for a long drive that weekend, and went to a mate’s 21st, i remember when we both got locked inside the mt lofty summit car park late at night and had to sneak out…”
this is an emotional time for all.
as i type this eulogy letters of appreciation are flooding in, and phone calls are being fielded, many wishing to say farewell to a loved vehicle, most noted for its ability to carry large amounts of useless and usefull equipment from a to b.
last seen alive by a handfull of faithful friends mervins memory will continue.
thankyou good and faithful car, you have done your master well.
