States vie for Pirelli

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Onroad -

STATES started try­ing to beat each other with clever words in the clos­ing days of the cars­Guide Pirelli cal­en­dar com­pe­ti­tion.

To­gether with Pirelli, cars­Guide has six cal­en­dars to give away.

Only 10,000 are printed ev­ery year and none is for sale.

Each of the six cal­en­dars will be won by one reader in one of six state group­ings.

And if they tell us about their tyre pur­chases, all en­trants can also be in the run­ning to win a set of Pirelli Cin­tu­rato tyres.

So it’s no sur­prise en­trants from coast to coast turned to hu­mour and rhyme to try to shine in their at­tempts to win.

‘‘Di­a­monds may be a girl’s best friend but women pre­fer tyre-men,’’ reck­ons El­iz­a­beth Karpiel, of NSW.

‘‘There once was a cal­en­dar for guys, that showed lots of (ahem) bums and thighs. They then added men, for all the women, and now there are just lots of sighs,’’ writes Jeremy Cheah, also of NSW.

Rik Down­ward rep­re­sents the North­ern Ter­ri­tory with: ‘‘Pic­tures taken in hue, make some girls feel blue, but if they only knew, their true beauty shines through.’’

‘‘It’s sexy, it’s stylish, it’s fun. It’s ev­ery­thing ap­peal­ing rolled into one. Please put my name on the list of who’s won,’’ pleads Delia Tin­dal, from Queens­land.

‘‘Man or woman, car or tyre, it makes no dif­fer­ence which we ad­mire. VIP or mere mor­tal, we all ap­pre­ci­ate the Pirelli por­tal,’’ ven­tures Jill King, of Tas­ma­nia

‘‘Blokes wor­ship god­desses with heav­enly curls, chicks fancy glad­i­a­tors in tights and sandals. Pirelli’s cal­en­dar sat­is­fies all. Ques­tion is, on whose side of the wall?’’ says Melly Legi­man, of Vic­to­ria.

‘‘Lovely mod­els as far as any eye can see, no con­test Pirelli, just give it to me,’’ di­rects Roger Ward, of Western Aus­tralia.
